Booked this online, very last minute, 2 hours before we ate. We were welcomed on arrival as if we were regulars, rather than just first time visitors. Selecting from the menu was difficult, too many delicious sounding options. We had starters of fish cake and ribs. Both fabulous. Cod and chorizo is definitely a winning combination. For mains we had sea bass, perfect, with a really gorgeous selection of veg and chicken risotto. A good sized portion, but then it was doubled when the waitress brought out the other half of the chicken breast that chef hadn’t plated up. Delightful! No room for dessert. Great selection of wines, we had the Chilean sauv Blanc. If we lived in Taunton we would be here every other week. Thank you Tristan, a great meal at a an excellent price.

We were staying locally and saw the great reviews, so booked a table for our last night.
Everything about the experience was top notch. Great service with prices at a really fair cost but most importantly the food was excellent.
Wish we lived closer!

Having recently moved to the area, we visited Tristans as reviews have all been superb. Went on Friday, the first week after lockdown restrictions were lifted. Everything about our visit was first class, from the service to the food. My partner had the fried Brie which she thoroughly enjoyed. The mackerel was good too, although too much onion for my liking. We then both had belly pork which was fabulous, loads of pork & the whole dish was very tasty indeed. As it was my partner’s birthday I had arranged for Georgie to make a cake which was covered in chocolate buttercream & large white buttons. Georgie brought this out with one lit candle which was a lovely surprise for my partner. Although it cost £12 it was well worth it! We left the restaurant feeling very full & satisfied, with most of the cake to polish off during the rest of the week. This restaurant is very popular & we can certainly see why. We shall definitely return some time.
