    We thought this restaurant was fabulous when we first visited in 2016 and this visit did not dissapoint. Both food and service are excellent, no pretentiousness, great ambience and relaxed atmosphere. Still of the opinion that it is the best we have ever experienced and will be back. Thank you all.

    We booked here as a treat during our honeymoon in The Lakes. This is a small understated restaurant in the midst of Ambleside but it does not disappoint in any way. While the room looks basic, with wooden tables and chairs, it is subtly elegant. There are no pompous table cloths but locally sourced felt table mats with cutlery served in the same. We chose the taster menu and matching wine flight. The food was divine, every course including the additional appetisers were delicious, all using locally sourced ingredients. Each course was perfectly timed and the wine matched was just perfect. We’re not connoisseurs at all and the wine was explained in just the right level of detail. My food dislikes were managed very well with a slight amendment to one dish. Finally the staff were great, I thought one individual was a little pompous at first but he soon mellowed during the meal. Overall a superb meal in every way and a gem of a place. We will be back. Thank you

    Fantastic food and excellent service. Michelin Star food that is simply amazing. Started off with free hors d'oeuvres which were unexpected - a lamb broth followed by other amazing delights!! Starter was a Rabbit dish which was awesomely fantastic - taste buds went into over drive haha Main was Red Deer which just needs to be savored - it was cooked beautifully and soooooo tender. Finished off with cheesecake that had a base of Grasmere Gingerbread - what more can I say ! oh this was superb as well. Will definitely be back - fine dining on our doorstep.

    We visited for dinner on the back of a friends recommendation... we were lucky as only booked 2 days prior. We had the tasting menu with wine pairing. Fantastic locally inspired menu, and locally sourced produce. Very reasonably priced for the quality and service. Could not recommend more!

    This was my second meal at The Old Stamp House. The first time was for dinner and this time for lunch with friends to whom I had raved about this restaurant. Our meals more than lived up to expectation and was more than equal to my first visit. The staff are efficient and friendly and the cooking outstanding. I only wish it was nearer to where I live so I could eat there more often. We drove 2 hours for lunch and would have driven further for such a great experience. i cannot recommend it highly enough.

    Since our last visit the Old Stamp House has received its Michelin Star which we believe is richly deserved. We again chose the tasting menu which Ryan has tweaked a little but as always we were not disappointed. For shear consistency this restaurant takes some beating.

    Not a the location you expect, but, when found it is a gem. Would recommend you book noy be potentially disappointed. The ambience is very good, the menu offers the "Taster" or a range of meals, all are meals you will savoir, rather than just eat. Would highly recommend as all ingredients are locally sourced.

    Visited for the valentines lunch taster menu and it was superb. Each course was like a tiny piece of heaven on your taste buds. The restaurant is small and cosy with a relaxed atmosphere and the staff were excellent making it a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Will certainly return the next time I’m in The Lakes.

    We had the tasting menu and the experience was perfect from start to finish. Wonderful flavours and locally sourced ingredients. This is a credit to the great Lake District tradition of good food. The friendliness of the people was excellent, attentive but not over the top. I personally couldn't manage all the courses which were more than expected. This restaurant deserves its' excellent reputation.

    My wife and I spent our anniversary here and it was truly special. Hidden palace underneath Greggs and accessed by some steps but once you find it it has a real character and charm which is rustic and entirely sympathetic to the whole Lake District milieu. We each had the full taster menu and each course was spectacular as were the amuse bouche that preceded the six courses. We were there nearly three hours but this was entirely due to the most relaxing and pleasant pace at which the food is served and the fact that the team take time to explain the dishes and their preparation. I did not opt for the matched wines and this was a big mistake on my part. Other tables did take the option and the array and quality of the wines served was admirable and the knowledge of the Sommelier impressive. I will not make that mistake again!

    We had a wonderful meal choosing the £70 tasting menu. We really enjoyed the extra flavours provided in the small tasters between courses. The tasting menu was plate licking good!

    This was a return visit for dinner and it was outstanding again! Food was exceptional, wine delicious and service was perfection. Coped magnificantly with food intolerances, could not fault and would return in a heartbeat at any opportunity as it is amoungst the best food we have had the pleasure of eating. It is fine and therefore expensive dining rather than cheap eats, but you can so clearly see where your money goes in terms of quality of ingreadiants, food and service.

    The tasting menu at lunch was perhaps the best food my partner and I have ever eaten. We visited for a lunch tasting menu. The service was faultless and food was to the same standard. Canapés were a nice surprise, scallop with pumpkin purée and parmesan tuile added texture and saltiness, the main courses of cod and hogget were both beautifully presented with great textures and outstanding flavours, but arguably the star of the show was the chocolate delice - a subtle hint of coffee (very glad it wasn’t a stronger flavour) alongside the refreshing clementine was an excellent ending to the menu. Lots of Michelin star tasting menus are let down with a poor dessert, but this was incredible and took it above any of these menus. Not quite sure of the local market (we are used to London prices), but feel that £45 is hugely undervalued. Prices could be far above this. Fully expecting to pay more the next time we visit, and would certainly be happy to! Chocolate fudge with (what I believe to be) hoggat fat was a lovely ending to the meal. The chef coming out to chat to guests and giving us the menu to take away made the lunch even more perfect. Unquestionably deserving of the star. Clearly loves what he’s doing and it shows in the standard of the food.

    Intimate atmosphere- don't go here for the view or to people gaze. Excellent food. We enjoyed the taster menu and accompanying flight of wines. Excellent price by comparison with other restaurants of this stature.
