Slightly disappointed with our experience here. The food was good but there was no atmosphere, a long wait between courses and a sommelier who knew his stuff but had no table manner whatsoever - intense, uncomfortable and didn't even make eye contact or smile! The French waiter and the two women downstairs, however, were friendly and welcoming. The duck egg... More

I expected great things and wasn't let down. Service and food were amazing. They have judged their offerings very well and deliver it with professionalism and dedication.

Not sure what more needs to be said... food was perfection, service was attentive without feeling like we were being watched. We came here for our first anniversary as well. It's just brilliant in every way.

Four of us dined here for the second time: saturday evening, the place was very busy, and the food was utterly superb. We had the six-course menu and each course was a delight, full of surprise and flavour and clever matchings of foods. It is a brilliant restaurant and the meal we had was up there with the best of...

The food at Tristan is exceptional, every mouthful was an exciting surprise. We went for our anniversary. Cant believe we hadn't been before and we are really looking forward to going back. We intended to have the 6 course dinner but ended up having the 4 course Winter menu. Have the Duck egg 62, its unbelievable! If we had any... More

I booked a table for my husbands birthday, and we had the lunch 3 coarse menu. The food although excellent in flavour and presentation , all our main courses were luke warm, as were some of our additional side dishes. I did not want to complain as this was a special occasion for my husband, and this would have spoilt... More

We had their 8 course tasting menu (one meaty, one veggie); the food was competently cooked and certainly on a par with other Michelin starred restaurants that we have been to. The service, however, was well below what we have experienced elsewhere; the staff were friendly enough, but the speed of food delivery was glacial. At one stage we were... More

We booked a table as an Anniversary treat. I really can't fault our experience. The food was wonderful, any questions we had were politely and enthusiastically answered, the staff were fantastic. To those who say it's expensive, I believe you get what you pay for, very happy to dine there again...

My husband and I treated ourselves to the six course taster menu. What can I say! It was fantastic. My husband had the wine pairing. The staff were brilliant - quite quirky and really added to the experience. The sommelier was very good. Some of it was a bit too rich for me but my husband loved every course. The... More

Table booked as a present, our first taster menu, unfortunately very disappointing, and was very expensive, would not recommend.

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.
