Excellent food. Only issues is that 2/3 pints served but one of the party had a different drink from other bar and got it served in pints so didn’t understand why we couldn’t get served pints as well.

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.

    Sleek contemporary atmosphere with friendly staff and special dining experience; the hardwood smoked grill adds a gently smoked taste to the dishes.

    A very comfortable and well equipped modern restaurant visited on a Saturday evening in November. The Australian Lady was very pleasant and courteous, well up to the task. The scope menu is good, something for most tastes bit pricey, there are good value restaurants of a good standard in the locality. The wine list good but again a bit pricey.
    The food was really good well worth a visit for the experience a real pleasure.

    We enjoyed a wedding anniversary dinner at Blue Smoke and from start to finish the staff could not do enough to make the evening special. The food was exceptional and would not hesitate to return.

    The restaurant was stunning and has massive potential. The manageress (I think) was lovely and very attentive, but there was definitely a staff shortage, they needed at least one more waiter on duty and someone who is happy to converse with guests. The welcome upon arrival needs some thought especially as we stood waiting for ages to be seated, with barely an acknowledgment.
    The food was a little disappointing in terms of value for money and quality. Somewhat underwhelming, I'm afraid.
    But they really made a special effort for my daughter's birthday, which was so appreciated, and despite the food, we had an absolutely lovely time. With a little more attention to detail, this restaurant could easily become the jewel of the lakes.

    The food was very tasty. The time between each course was far too quick. We were eating the nibbles course when the starter arrived. We sent it back as we were not ready. Then in between the starter and main course... Again served far too quick.
