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.

    This was our first visit to Blue Smoke and we were not disappointed. The food and service were both excellent.

    Sorry to say that the food was at best average and overpriced.

    Lovely restaurant, good wine list, helpful, friendly staff. The lobster and crab dish was beautiful. I was a little disappointed in the butterfly chicken breast which came with lots of broccoli lying over the top and fries. It could have done with a sauce. It come with a small pot of chimichanga (?) which was so hot it nearly choked me ( and I do like spicy food!)

    The restaurant is amazing. However We went a while ago and thought it was better priced then, but that could have been just us. We had the sharing main course which was brilliant but lacking some vegetables/salad.

    Our fourth visit here, we only live in Windermere and Blue Smoke is our favourite restaurant. We like to sit in front of the chefs which I requested again this time and the request was taken into account so thank you! Staff are always lovely. This is the first time we've been where we've not had a full conversation with any of the staff but all were very pleasant and approachable.

    Part of my meal wasn't cooked but what was cooked was good; my partner had a great steak which was cooked to perfection. Great choice in wines. Service was ok. Asked for some mayo which came in a jar which i would have expected in a bowl from a restaurant
