Looking out over the tranquil waters of Lake Windermere, Blue Smoke on the Bay is a delightfully cosy restaurant at New Lake District. The 3-metre long double wood-fired grill acts as a focal point, using sustainable British woods to cook a selection of juicy steaks which are perfectly complemented by the diverse wine list.

A great selection of wholesome British flavours are served on the Blue Smoke at the Bay menu. Start off with Solway lobster and Muncaster crab bisque served with artisan bread, before choosing one of the succulent aged steaks cooked using a variety of woods. Other grill specialities include mango habanero-spiced chicken breast, and coffee rub short rib. There are also vegetarian choices such as sweet potato and pinto bean chilli, and indulgent sides of beer battered onion rings and sweet potato mash.

Save room for pudding at Blue Smoke on the Bay in Windermere, with options like chocolate and Captain Morgan Spiced Rum mousse, and locally produced artisan cheeses. Alongside the diverse wine list there are classic and signature cocktails, including ones made for sharing.

Offering beautiful lake views and a cosy ambience, Blue Smoke on the Bay is a 7-minute drive from Windermere Rail Station.

    Dinner over the two nights was very good. However not at all impressed by either the menu or the service at brunch.

    Always a fantastic experience, and the steaks are superb and staff attentive and friendly.

    Delicious food great ambiance fantastic service

  • (((** 3 September 2019 by Vincent from Bangor

    The starter of duck was tasty. Charging £20 for a burger and chips, which is fast food at the end of the day, is unreasonable in my opinion - they were ok but nothing special. Again dessert was just ok - the tart was rather dry.

    Service good, food good , dessert menu was limited.

    We had lunch at the Blue Smoke, the ambience was amazing, the view was stunning, the staff were attentive and the food was incredible. The chefs even went out of their way to ensure needs were catered for.

    All our food was very nice, however the service was rather slow.
    Our drinks order was taken after the food order!!
    This is not what we would usually expect.
