Whilst doing a house-swap with my brother and his wife in Horsham, we decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary at Tristan's and booked the six course taster menu with wine. What a superb experience! On arrival, we ordered a glass of champagne and were served bread, with butter and tapenade and then ate a gorgeous Amuse-Bouche of ham hock with... More

Excellent on every level and a thoroughly enjoyable evening from the start. Warm, friendly, knowledgeable staff, the most delicious red wine advised for my meal choices, we had the Autumn menus which was stunning with a good choice of intriguing options. Would have liked to try them all! After a really tough week we left the restaurant on Friday night... More

Lunchtime meal with the family and the food, service and ambiance were all very good. There was a decent range of dishes available on both the fixed price and a la carte menus. Catering well for vegetarians and omnivores in the party. The timing, presentation and service were all to a high standard. The wines were all decent quality and... More

Horsham has a plethora of "chain" coffee shops and restaurants and it was a very pleasant surprise to discover Restaurant Tristan. Although not immediately obvious it is definitely worth seeking out. We went without a reservation but received a warm and professional welcome to what turned out to be a fairly busy evening. The staff were knowledgeable and the food... More

Found this place on TA and it lived up to expectation. Service was excellent. Friendly but not obtrusive. All our dishes were explsind well. We had the select menu - £25 for three courses which was excellent value. This restaurant has a great relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely recommend and visit again.

The food here was a hit and miss. Some courses were delicious, others not so much. A couple of dishes were far too salty. The wine pairings were very well chosen. Shame they were served by a very miserable looking gentleman. All in all, slightly disappointed by our meal here.

About once a fortnight a couple of us meet as old friends, just for a quiet coffee and to reminisce. Most of Horsham's coffee shops have had our custom several times. The Barrista here remembers our previous orders to the letter: which coffees first, which teas later! It's so nice to be famous and remembered! Tristan's is one of the... More

The food was delicious - as I expected, given the Michelin star. But what really made the evening, and I hadn't been expecting, was the friendly but relaxed service. We were put at our ease and made to feel at home immediately; the whole atmosphere was very unstuffy with just the right amount of attention paid to us. Very many... More

This is a fine restaurant with a friendly knowledgeable sommelier and excellent food. The service is good too, although it was clear where some members of staff were still learning. We were served a refreshing glass of fizz from Kent before our food, and a delicious Chilean pinot noir which complemented our choices of both fish and meat from the... 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.
