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.

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

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.

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.
