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.

Lunch at the Old Stamp House is undoubtedly a good value five star experience, no question. By way of a very minor point I would suggest the same level of thought goes into the C-19 risk mitigation. I stress this is a minor comment and we all felt completely safe 100% of the time. Great food, staff and ambience, the chef visiting the diners was an especially nice touch. See you again soon Les

Another wonderful evening at the Stamp House Ambleside. definitely our favourite place! The food is consistently amazing and changes frequently. We love the flight matches and the menu and information in the envelope was a great idea! See you all soon. Angela & Darren.

Fantastic food, beautifully present and wonderful flavours. As usual the service was great whilst being welcoming and personal. Even thought the tables were set for distancing this did not detract from the atmosphere. ‘Thanks to all the team - once again we had a lovely experience. So glad you are open again.

Very good food Excellent wine list Well explained menu - liked that it was written down Maybe more engagement with staff (although we are in Covid-19 and that might be the reason)

Brilliant. Truly brilliant meal. Great service and the food was unbelievably good, esoet given that it was a reduced menu due to Covid. Can't wait to come back when the full menu is unleashed again.
