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.

    Excellent - a great experience being able to watch the chefs at work on the open grill. Great choice on the menu, extensive wine list and friendly helpful service. A truly lovely place for an evening meal or lunch

    Restaurant decor is great, done to a very high standard. Most of the dishes had on our table were brilliant, the marinated rump steak which I had was amazing! Another however asked the waitress if the sea bass was boned and the waitress said it was. Upon the dish arriving it wasn’t boned which made for a disappointing meal having to pick out the bones with each mouthful, a different dish would of happily been chosen if correct information had of been given as not to everyone’s taste. The only other point would be to refine the overall staff service. It would be absolutely fine in a middle of the road restaurant/pub dining but when trying to create a high end experience the waiters and waitress need to also portray this with a bit more professionalism. It’s sometimes just the finer details that can make sure a difference. However overall a pleasant experience.

    What a gem..we requested a booth next to the kitchen as we had seen photos online and we were directed to one upon arrival so we appreciated they had taken our request on board. Staff promptly took our coats and gave us menus. The food was delicious and they were very generous portions esp the chips! The decor, ambience was spot on and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The staff are very attentive and friendly. We were not staying at the hotel but so glad we visited...we have booked again to visit during our stay in the Lakes.

    I'd already pre booked prior to our arrival having never been to the hotel or restaurant before, however during our stay, we got talking to a lovely member of staff called Demi. Demi went above and beyond to make my girlfriends birthday even more special by choosing the best seats for us right in front of the kitchen area. The staff in the restaurant were really welcoming, smiley and friendly. The menu had lots to choose from and each item genuinely gave you a mouth watering feeling just by hearing what the staff recommended! We chose the sirloin steak and burger and weren't disappointed! If you have younger one's with you who are eager to eat theming antic Blue Smoke chips it's worth letting them cool down for a few minutes as they were piping hot however that is certainly not a compliant! 11/10 experience for us both.

    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!)
