The restaurant

 Kysty is a casual dining restaurant located in the heart Ambleside, serving food crafted by the team behind The Old Stamp House. 

At its very heart are brothers Ryan and Craig Blackburn, who inspired by the landscape they grew up in, have set about creating a quintessentially Cumbrian inspired dining experience.

 

When the brothers started Kysty, in 2018, their mission was to serve great food, which above all else had to be seasonal, inspirational and delicious.

You’ll be pleased to know that their priorities haven’t changed one little bit…

Their motivation is to provide their guests with a truly memorable dining experience, one that they will want to enjoy time and time again,

Our Kitchen

I'm a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me. It’s easy. Just click “Edit Text” or double click me to add your own content and make changes to the font. Feel free to drag and drop me anywhere you like on your page. I’m a great place for you to tell a story and let your users know a little more about you.

The food served at Kysty has been lovingly crafted by our dedicated team of chefs. Led by head chef Dan Hopkins they have created a seasonal menu brim full of dishes inspired by the Cumbrian landscape that surrounds us.

Dishes that reflect the simple food ethos of our Chef Patron Ryan Blackburn, which is to utilise only the finest seasonal ingredients available from carefully selected small artisan producers, who grow and rear quality produce with real care and attention to detail.

We utilise Herdwick from the high fells, beef from the Solway Plain, wild game from the high Pennines, mushrooms, nuts and berries from the woods and forests that surround us, wild salmon and trout from the rivers that criss-cross the landscape and fresh fish and shellfish from the cool waters of Cumbria’s Irish Sea coast. All of which provides us with an abundant ever-changing larder to use in the dishes we create.

Dishes include garlic mushroom, with roasted hen of the woods, garlic emulsion and hazelnut, Garside’s lamb rump, with roasted broccoli, mint and anchovy emulsion and custard tart with poached rhubarb.

Kids aren’t left out either, as they will be able to enjoy their own delicious menu created using the same quality seasonal ingredients.
