About Old Stamp House Restaurant
The Old Stamp House Restaurant is located in Ambleside at the heart of the Lake District National Park, in the former work place of one of its most famous and treasured natives: William Wordsworth.
Opened in 2014, the Old Stamp House team aim to offer you a unique and unprecedented experience of the food culture our county has to offer. Not only using the famous and iconic local herdwick sheep that roam the local fells, we also draw inspiration from the lesser known ports on the west coast of the county with their rich history of importing spices and alcohol used in many of the local speciality dishes. We also use the small fishing fleets at Barrow and Whitehaven to source as much local fish and shellfish as possible. Having been brought up in the nearby valley of Great Langdale our team use this unparalleled local knowledge to collect and source wild herbs, mushrooms and game from the surrounding woodlands, forests, mountains and coastline.
We have been trying to visit for a while but always leave it too late! January was the perfect opportunity , well worth the wait, we will be back, loved everything about the experience in particular the duck broth to start the meal. Service was warm and friendly, Thank you everyone a very special place Jackie and Paul
Best place I've ever eaten. Craig is a very friendly guy. Nothing is too much trouble
An excellent meal and experience yet again.
Wonderful Saturday evening treat
Excellent food. Friendly but professional service. Good value including wines. Good that you leave tips to customers’ choice. Hogget and amuse-bouches exceptional. We’ll be back.
Amazing tasting menu, great wine.
Delicious food and great service. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting a high class meal when visiting Ambleside
The atmosphere is extremely comfortable and convivial. Craig and front of house give you as much time as you want and are never pushy. Craig has great wine knowledge resulting in thoughtful and interesting suggestions to suit Ryan’s food and one’s own taste.. Alan and Glenys Bowles
Superb food and service will definitely return.
Fantastic in all aspects
We all agreed that everything about the venue, the staff, ths service and the food deserved a 5 Star rating. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and have already recommended the Old Stamp House Restaurant to our friends. Thank you
The mallard and parsnip was one of the best I have had
An excellent evening
Ryan and the team; as always a fantastic evening of wonderful food.
We enjoyed every course of the seven course tasting menu and lovely to have some interesting wines by the glass to choose from. Highly recommend a visit to this little gem!
also the best of times great food, great place, won't be long before we're back again. cheers guys.
An excellent meal quite different than expected. The chef obviously likes customers to eat with their eyes as well as there individual tastes and produced several taster dishes which satisfied any appetite. Full marks for a gourmet experience of enjoyment. Highly recommended.
Having been regulars since the Old Stamp House opened, we both think it was the best meal we have had with you, a combination of top quality ingredients and skilled cooking.
Amazing food and drink loved the venue will defo return
We had a wonderful evening here.We decided on the seasonal menu, as opposed to the tasting menu, and were very happy to also receive the additional extras such as the broth and other amuse bouche. It made it far more special than the standards 3 courses; even better in that they were a complete surprise! Compared to other starred restaurants that we have eaten at (e.g L'enclume) the price was also very good for the quality of the food and service. The food itself we thought was exceptionally good.
Amazing experience, highly recommended
Fantastic once again.
Excellent value for a restaurant that has just been awarded a Michelin star. Fully deserved, excellent food and service. Would absolutely recommend.
Fabulous! We loved our New Years lunch- will hopefully comeback soon!
The pre starters and the deer were outstanding
