We would have booked for next week but sadly you are now closed for a while. We will be back, with friends, when you are able to re-open.

Really good food in enjoyable relaxed environment. Staff were super- friendly & professional they accommodated couple of food allergies without making us feel awkward at all or compromising on quality of dishes. We will definitely be back when COVID restrictions allow

An absolutely super meal - delighted to find the Old Stamp House's a la carte menu and standards here. Staff were so helpful, and we were made very welcome. Thank you

Different experience to that of a few weeks ago when it was excellent. Food was not as good, under seasoned cod dish and guinea hen and partridge both dry. Staff very pleasant but something just seemed amiss.

Great quality food but the restaurant lacks atmosphere and the lighting is far too bright. The staff are great but the decor and furnishings need improvement.

An excellent team providing really good food. Each course was excellent. Provided my wife a really memorable birthday meal to lift our spirits during a challenging year. Our second visit to this restaurant, and it just gets better. Highly recommended.

Attentive and excellent service from the moment that we walked through the front door until we left over 2 hours later. The environment felt 'covid safe'. Menu was limited but much thought had clearly been given to the ways in which the food was prepared and presented such it was interesting and a delight to eat. We will definitely be going back.Thanks and best wishes to all involved in Kysty.

We have been wanting to eat at Kysty ever since they opened but never managed to be in Ambleside at the right time. The only solution was to make a special trip which was well worth it. We felt Covid-safe and will return in the New Year. No better way to spend a wet Friday lunchtime!

The Food was great, from presentation to taste. Staff were very tentative. The setting was relaxed and casual, made for and even better dinning expierence. The Beetroot Meringue was an absolute treat, with an explosion of flavours in your mouth. Will definitely be back. Great suggestion by the Staff @ Old Stamp House when we were unable to get a table there.

I've visited Kysty twice now and it is Michelin star standard food from start to finish. It's flawless! What I really appreciate at the moment is that there's still a friendly, relaxed atmosphere - it *almost* feels normal! No mean feat at a time when so many hospitality establishments have managed to kill any atmosphere or joy!

Such a fantastic restaurant, amazing food, wonderful service and incredible value for money. The ingredients are all locally sourced and the skill and care over each menu item results in a beautiful and delicious dish! All served by a great team in a lovely small restaurant in the centre of town.

3rd visit and have enjoyed our meal each time. Also lovely to have another option connected to the Old Stamp House. The food is prepared and presented to the same high standard. The canapes are always delicious - would be even better if they varied a bit. We have been 3 times since August and I think they have been the same? All in all gourmet food in a informal setting.
