MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The Old Stamp House 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 – inside the cellars of an old house where William Wordsworth used to work as the Distributor of Stamps for Westmorland. It’s a tiny place, split over two low-ceilinged rooms which are hung with local art. It's owned by the Blackburn brothers: Ryan heads up the kitchen, while Craig looks after the service. Menus provide plenty of flexibility, with both an à la carte and tasting menus on offer, and the skilfully prepared, carefully balanced dishes have been well-thought-through and are packed with flavour. The Cumbrian larder is the star of the show, with local rabbit, deer and beef popular choices. The iconic Herdwick hogget and outstanding cheeses are must-tries.
