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.
Everything was amazing; which under the “Covid” circumstances, was impressive. The food was outstanding and we’ll definitely be back.
Pleasant and relaxing atmosphere, friendly and professional service and the food was absolutely to die for! This lovely restaurant is a really special experience. Highly recommend!
We had the lunch tasting menu. The food and service was stunning. At £45, this cannot be recommended enough.
Great service and amazing food (as usual!)
Terrific evening thank you so much. We had such a good time. The food was superb and we felt very well taken care of
We visited for lunch in late December 2020. The food was delicious with a nice variety among the courses. I went for the matching wines and they were the most enjoyable wines I'd ever had, complementing the food perfectly. The beers and G&T were very food too. The service was excellent, being both knowledgeable and friendly.
My husband and I ate the best meal of our lives on Tuesday and we have eaten some good grub over the years! Thank you Sharing your talent and passion regarding food and wine with the lucky ones who know where to find you and those who can afford the luxury. We hope the new year is a fruitful one for all of you! Blessings. Roz and Rob

Excellent food and service. A total delight.
Food was absolutely first class. Eating out for my wife and I is a serious pleasure and the food here ranks up there with some of the best 2* and 3* meals we have had. Combination of flavours and textures was fantastic. Well worth the effort to find a parking spot
