A superb restaurant a truly wonderful dining experience on every level from the moment you enter Tristan's the moment you leave. The food is incredible. The only issue I had was how soon I could return. I would strongly recommend booking 3 weeks in advance to ensure a table for a Saturday evening.

We went to Restaurant Tristan to celebrate our daughter's birthday and were very pleased we chose to come here. The evening dining area is upstairs in a fabulous restored mediaeval building. The setting is a good combination of restrained and comfortable. The food was all beautifully prepared and presented. The bread was delicious and the whipped butter heavenly. Between us... More

The select lunch menu is amazingly good value and as always at Restaurant Tristan delicious. The seasonal wild garlic amuse bouche was delicious followed by four courses perfectly cooked and presented. The wine choice is very good and the service unobtrusive but attentive. Will dyou finitely book for lunch again.

I took a client for dinner and just on the off chance popped in on a Thursday night to see if there was a table. Fortunately there was (normally not as they are so popular they are full) We opted for the Market Menu at £30 each. Only because we liked the look of that menu and as a change... More

We are regular diners at Tristans and should really post more reviews as we have had many very enjoyable meals here mainly dinner at the weekend but mid week too. We go to a number of the Michelin star restaurants in London but find that Tristans can compete and often surpass many of them. Recently had brunch for the first... More

At the end of March and April we took friends who were probably getting bored with our rave exhortations to try Tristans. Bit of a snag booking the latest lunch – their third party booking system said no room available. Highly unlikely for Wednesday lunchtime so I took to email. (It was at the weekend when they were closed or... More

A few of our party don't eat fish and these courses were changed very thoughtfully. We sat on he ground floor and it had such a cozy feel. The staff were lovely all in... 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.
