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.

    Fabulous setting. Friendly helpful staff and fairly intimate setting. Ideal for a romantic night out. Tried the Chateaux Briand and wasn’t disappointed. Price very fair.

    It was poor. Food was greasy and heavy. Disappointing for a restaurant in a 5 star hotel
