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, and there’s no doubt that Kysty’s ever-developing menus curated by Head Chef Dan Hopkins are testament to that…
