MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The Old Stamp House is a tiny place, split over two low-ceilinged rooms hung with local art, and is as quirky as its name implies. It sits in the centre of Ambleside – which in turn sits within the heart of the Lake District National Park – and occupies the cellars of an old house where William Wordsworth used to work as the Distributor of Stamps for Westmorland. 
It's owned by the Blackburn brothers – Ryan heads up the kitchen, while Craig looks after the service – and they have a passion for all things regional, which is summed up in the name of their tasting menu: ‘A Journey Around Cumbria’. The skilfully prepared dishes have been well-thought-through and carefully balance bold and delicate flavours; each has a story – sometimes historic, sometimes personal – and often a sustainable element too. The Herdwick hogget is not to be missed!
