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.

    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.

    . Had to wait to be seated and felt abit ignored however once seated the staff were very friendly. The main course took along time to come and we were a 9pm booking. The food was ok the salted caramel espresso martinis were great .

    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!)

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

    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.
