Top Reasons to Visit The Smith in Windermere
Whether you are looking for brunch, lunch or dinner, a place to have a quick coffee or drinks in the evening, The Smith in Windermere is the perfect place for you to try.
Here are a few top reasons to visit us at this great Windermere Restaurant the next time you are in town:
Perfect Brunch Location - The Smith is located next to Booths just a few steps away from Windermere train station; this makes it the perfect place to stop for a delicious brunch after getting off the train – try our famous Manwich, it will keep you going as you head off into the fells.
Great Pizza in Windermere – If you want a pizza that is baked to order and has more interesting toppings than simply cheese and tomato then The Smith is a place you need to try. From artichokes to truffles, salmon or chorizo, great flavour combinations are available every night of the week.
Quirky & Lovely Interiors – No one wants to sit in a boring plain box when they could be somewhere really lovely! An old forge with thick lakeland slate walls, now converted into a coffee house, restaurant and bar – that is what the Lake District is all about. The interiors at the The Smith are unique, unusual and (dare we say it), very Instagram worthy. High beams and stone walls are sympathetically paired with vintage furniture and quirky finds which makes this place a little Lake District gem. Soft fairy lights are draped across the ceiling and beams for a twinkly feel and the wood burning stove is an additional and lovely touch for rainy days and cooler nights.
Quiz Afficionados Love The Smith – Did you say there’s a quiz? Yes! For quiz lovers locally, or for those visiting the Lakes on holiday, Tuesday nights are quiz night at The Smith. Friendly competition, 'unusual' categories (think 'Best Paper Aeroplane' or 'Tortoise v Hamster'), great ambience and a chance to have your bill for the night paid for you, we recommend you book for this popular event.
Great Cocktails on the Terrace – The Smith has both a great list of cocktails, and a smart little outdoor terrace where it is great to drink them when the sun is shining. Beers, wines, coffees, teas and snacks are also available, but the cocktails are truly delicious. Our terrace is topped off by a stunning view over the fells.
A Perfect Space for Families – If you are visiting Windermere and have the whole family with you then The Smith is a relaxed place to bring them all to. Snacks, salads and pizza are served along with a range of baked items to keep everyone in the family happy, and there is even a stack of great board games if you are feeling competitive! We are also dog-friendly, and who doesn't enjoy fell walking with their dog in the Lakes?
Could Wednesday be Date Night? Whether you are catching up with your bestie or having a romantic meal with your beau, Wednesday nights could be the perfect night at The Smith as it is Prosecco Night! 2 Pizzas and a bottle of fizz for £30.00 is a great deal in the heart of Windermere.
The Smith Loves to Party – Whether you want to hire the entire place out for your own event, or join a party night such as the New Year’s Eve Disco, this unique bar in the heart of Windermere is the best place to be to celebrate.
Gin Lovers Rejoice – In a world full of unique gins, The Smith in Windermere stands out as they create their own home steeped gins! With flavours such as Peach & Raspberry, Marmalade and Matcha Tea, keep an eye out to see what other flavours they have concocted when you visit.
