Description: 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.

have eaten here three times over the last 2 or 3 years. the food is very good but possibly at risk of becoming a bit overcomplicated. at our last visit there were some great flavours but perhaps too many on the same plate, also making for some over elaborate presentation. desserts were variable, the banana tarte tatin was not a success. service was enthusiastic but somewhat rustic and the wine service was below par. overall this place deserves to do well but could do with a little polishing.

First visit to Tristans over the Xmas period and we had the Xmas tasting menu with wine. I have been fortunate to eat in other Michelin Star restaurants and have to say Tristan's did not disappoint. Every course was delicious and every course's accompanied wine was delightful. The Chef is clearly first class and should be congratulated.

Food was amazing, service, atmosphere was excellent. This is a top end restaurant and did not disappoint. Presentation of food was to a very high standard, and the taste was exquisite. Would definitely recommend to anyone for a special occasion.

The restaurant was already fully booked for Valentines day, so took my partner for a meal the day before. This was our first time at Restaurant Tristan and it will definetily not be the last. The food was superb and the service was excellent. For the quality of service and food, I consider this good value for money and I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to everyone and will be letting all my friends and family know about this gem.

We went for my birthday last night. Had the 3 course lunch menu, £24 per person, excellent value... You could pay that in a pub... My daughter's first experience... Her comment was the best pudding ever.
