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've been going to the OSH for a good number of years now and we simply love it. There isn't a star more deserved in the area and it hasn't affected them one bit - it's still the same amazing food, wonderful service and friendly staff.

I felt the food was average and the wine pairing not so good. The service was ok and friendly.

We had a really lovely evening here. The food was thoroughly enjoyable. Our only slight issue was we weren’t overly keen on the red wine pairing but enjoyed the other 3 wines paired with the courses. The food was amazing! Service was good all the staff are very friendly.

Had a great evening at the Old Stamp House. From the letter on arrival detailing the menu to the excellent friendly service and beautiful food. It is an experience more than a meal. Really fun and enjoyable way to celebrate my birthday!

We had dinner in a 3* the night before and I must say yours was a much better experience. food obviously is excellent (special mention to the celery!), I am sure everyone would agree so let me congratulate you on the rest: warm welcoming (rare quality in the Lake District :-), one is made at ease in this restaurant.

Everything was first class. Cannot fault anything. A super enjoyable experience. The food was delicious, beautiful and memorable. We will be back when this pesky Sober October malarkey is finished. Well done, team!
