Review on Restaurant Tristan

Michelin-starred chef Tristan Mason (formerly of Orrery and the Hare Restaurant in Lambourn) moved south to open his own restaurant in Horsham and the charming sixteenth-century premises, formerly occupied Stan's Way House Restaurant, has become one of the hot tickets in West Sussex.

The endearing first-floor dining room is dominated by a lovely old beamed ceiling and the whole place is a showcase for Mason's sharp modern British cooking with French and Mediterranean influences. He is keen to source locally for a repertoire that shows seasonal invention and flair without descending into overkill.

At dinner you might begin with scallops, carrot purée and stem ginger or saddle of rabbit with Pink Fir potato and autumn truffle vinaigrette before moving on to saddle of venison with chervil root and chocolate or turbot with clams, red wine risotto and young artichokes. Desserts also push the boat out for the likes of banana tarte Tatin, lemon sauce, caramelised walnut and parsley ice cream. Lunch brings a simpler choice of similar dishes with a lower price tag, and the wine list is a smart selection of cleverly chosen bottles from interesting sources.
