Determined we would be at Tristan's this New Year's Eve as we had to miss out the previous year because of the terrible fire. As was to be expected - another amazing meal with just the perfect wine with every course, champagne at midnight with the lovely people who work there and, of course as it was NYE, time to... More

First trip back to Tristan's in a while and it really didn't disappoint. It truly was perfection, staff were amazing (special mention to the French waiter, he's an absolute credit to Tristan's, although all were brilliant) food was out of this world and accompanied by the wine package made it all the more memorable. I could not recommend this restaurant... More

It was our first experience of a Michelin starred restaurant and it won't be my last. The restaurant was lovely and the atmosphere was buzzing. Some guests were used to this level and were enjoying the different varieties of wine with their courses but this would have been wasted on me. The staff were friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the... More

We visited Tristan's for a friends birthday in December and had a truly wonderful meal. Upon arrival we were greeted by a very friendly member of staff who took our coats while another showed us to the table. The restaurant itsself was tastefully decorated and nice and spacious whilst still being cosy. We chose the 6 course tasting menu and... More

We have been regulars here over the years. Decided to stay home this year rather than pay ridiculous money to hotels and treat ourselves to a meal at Tristan's instead. A good plan as the evening was excellent! We had the tasting menu and the flight of wines. Well thought through and good wines and food. Enjoyed the reds particularly... More

Certainly enjoyed the experience,with excellent service and interesting food compilations and lots of wine on offer. That said the whole visit did not excite me and make me feel I had been elevated in the culinary world but still very interesting.

Hi, I had a dinner date at the restaurant this week and was really looking forward to it, given that i had previously read great reviews. The atmosphere is lovely, the restaurant is set in a lovely old building, very romantic and for anyone looking for parking there are many nearby, within a couple of minutes walking, so no need...

Lovely restaurant in Horsham town centre. Very friendly staff and service was very good. Food was excellent. We had the christmas tasting meal with matching wines . The amuse bouche was delicious and a great start to the meal. Each course was complimented by the wines. Well worth a visit.

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.
