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.
A very good evening
This is the second time we've been, the first being after it first opened a few years ago. It's just as amazing as we remembered! Would definitely go back again if we lived closer!
superb food,very nice nice touch to serve hors d'oeuvres. friendly personal service and efficient too.
Completely faultless and the only Restaurant that can compare in terms of quality, interest, flavour and originality is L'enclume. Just sensational !!
Lovely food and amazing service.
Fine dining in the lakes done properly ! Once again we were blown away by the flavours created in the dishes served to us. The Duck was cooked above & beyond any other Duck dish i've tasted before. Keep up the good work.
We had the summer menu and it was the best meal we have ever had! We will be recommending this restaurant to everyone we know. Thank you for the outstanding food and service. Emily and Joe
The both the food and service was quite lovely.
Delightful evening where the food was fantastic the and the service very friendly and personal. The tasting menu was very generous and the wine pairing worked very well. It is expensive and therefore for special occasions and made for a memorable birthday meal for my wife.
Fabulous evening! Food was absolutely stunning, the service was attentive and warm and great value for money. The hosts were even kind enough to do a pared down meal for our son, who was with us. Nothing was too much effort. Love this place and we will be back next time we're in the Lake District
Have been on several occasions and have never been disappointed.a true culinary experience. We look look forward to our next visit
