Tristan & Candy Mason’s “charming restaurant” serves smart and “delicious” modern British cooking in a “comfortable” timber-framed sixteenth-century dining room in the centre of Horsham. Opened in 2008, it now has an enviable reputation as home to some of the best dining in the area – “by a long way”. The menu is cleverly priced by the number of courses taken at lunch and midweek, moving to “great value” six and nine-course tasting menus on Friday and Saturday evening. Top Tip: if you want to eat the full seven courses at lunchtime, you have to tuck in by 12.45!

“A great find out in an area of relative culinary wilderness” – Tristan & Candy Mason’s well-established destination occupies a converted sixteenth-century building in the town centre, complete with pitched roof and wood beams. There’s a range of fixed menus from three courses for £30 up to eight courses for £90, and the modern British dishes are “beautiful”“creative (but not gimmicky)”. Top Tip – it has a bar where they serve breakfast and brunch.

Tristan & Candy Mason have just celebrated the 10th year of their town-centre venue, which wins consistently high ratings for “really ‘next-level’ cuisine”. “Tristan is an outstanding chef producing wonderful meals”, fans agree, while “Candy ensures the high service standards”. There were some minor rumblings this year about the fact that it’s “not cheap”, but even a reporter who felt it was “overpriced” said the food’s “very good”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"The food is as excellent however standard of service is no longer up to standard. Ambience in the restaurant is good but on arrival no staff to wecome you, or offer a drink or menu. The standard has slipped since reopening after Covid all new staff."
