Somewhere to eat

There are many places to eat, in Ambleside, ranging from fine dining to fast food.  Here are some of the places that our guests recommend: –

The Priest Hole –  Restaurant and tea rooms that are part of the Kelsick Old Hall, one of the oldest buildings in Ambleside.

Zeffirelli – vegetarian restaurant with a jazz bar and cinema attached.  Buy a combo ticket for a movie and a meal at a great price, and you can even take your drink into the cinema with you!

Dodds – coffee shop during the day, full menu restaurant in the evening.  You can’t book a table, but it’s well worth the wait!

Old Stamp House – foodie heaven, at a Michelin starred restaurant based in a workplace of William Wordsworth, who was the Distributor of Stamps for Westmorland, as well as a poet.
