Nice food, even if it was lukewarm but dreadful service. When I'm spending £100 per head I don't expect to find a hair in my food and when its mentioned some level of response from the dreadfully miserable and sullen waiting staff would be expected and appreciated. Waiting around 20-25 minutes between courses is ridiculous and having to constantly ask... More

We had dinner in this restaurant for a special occasion, and we had a great evening. The service is very friendly and professional. The restaurant room is pleasant and clean. The food is very well presented, and very tasty. The only downside is the price: very expensive considering the location and the food which is very nice but doesn't justify... More

Can't believe this restaurant is only down the road from us and we have only just visited! We had the Autumn 4 course meal which was lovely! The food was so fresh and tasty and the staff were very helpful. It had a nice atmosphere and didn't feel uncomfortable like some Michelin starred restaurants can. Will definitely visit again

Firstly, the restaurant went out of its way to fit our party in. It was a special occasion and whilst we tried to book well in advance, the restaurant was still fully booked (which says a lot too!). That said, they made room for us, just later in the evening than originally planned and this made for a perfect start.... More

This wonderful restaurant never fails me - as you arrive you are met like a long lost brother, the surroundings for a pre-lunch drink is comfortable and relaxed and then the lunch menu is a delight - at a fair price.

The service, ambience and cuisine in Restaurant Tristan are all impossible to fault. The light lunch menu offered a good variety of dishes: modern cuisine, sensible portions - just right for a weekday lunch.

We went there to celebrate our anniversary. This is a small Michelin 1 star restaurant and did not disappoint. Food is innovative using seasonal ingredients cooked to a high standard and the additional bread, amuse Boucher and wine selection added to the experience. Will be visiting again.

I've been going to Tristan's for many years and think that his latest menu of 4 courses is not as good as when he used to serve 3 larger courses. This is because some of the ingredients of each dish are so small that its difficult to actually taste the food. His amuse bouche can be too salty and his... More

Housed in a 16th Century building in the historic town of Horsham, Restaurant Tristan opened in 2008 and has been a firm favourite with local foodies ever since. Inside, original wooden beams contrast with contemporary style to create an intimate setting for lunch or dinner. Chef and Proprietor Tristan Mason worked in top restaurants like The Greenhouse and Mirabelle before becoming Head Chef at The Hare where he achieved his first Michelin Star. The menu at Restaurant Tristan is predominantly British with some creative French influences, with dishes like terrine of pheasant and turbot with truffle risotto taking centre stage. Ingredients are locally sourced wherever possible and the extensive wine list is designed to complete this truly unforgettable dining experience.
