Stanley’s Steak ‘n’ Smoke

Swinging open the doors of their new premises just over four weeks ago, Stanley’s Steak ‘n’ Smoke in Workington is hoping to win over locals with its new sizzling selection of steaks and smoky delights.

Formally known as Stanley’s, the restaurant sits just a few doors along from its previous home and boasts a modern interior creating the perfect environment in which to mull over their extensive range of locally sourced steaks, gourmet burgers, pulled meats and desserts.

Moving into its new premises in Jane Street, the restaurant combines a Texan feel with freshly prepared grub that can only be described as food for the soul. Taking just six days to transform, owner Graham Wishart and his wife, Emma have created a relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy a mouth-watering meal with friends or family.


Graham said: “The new restaurant is much cosier, but I think a lot of people don’t know we have moved. We have definitely gone in a new direction and the menu has changed quite a lot. Previously it had quite a restaurant feel to it but we have gone for a much more relaxed, laid-back style.”

A quick scan of the menu confirms that meat lovers will not be disappointed. Hand pressed gourmet burgers are offered in nine different flavour combinations including The Chicken Cowboy, All Pigged Out and The Italian Job, while locally sourced Lakeland steaks are available in a variety of cuts ranging from rib-eyes and fillets, to picana and t-bones. Steaks are cooked in a choice of two ways; either to your liking in the kitchen or on one of the popular 350 degree hot stones which makes for an exciting dining experience.

Graham added: “All the steaks are sourced locally and the burgers which are really popular are all made here. In the previous restaurant we did a lot of steaks on the stone, and although we are keeping them, we have also started to do char-grilled cooked steaks. Some people like the steaks on a stone, some people prefer a cooked steak so; we are hoping to appeal to everyone.”

For those who can’t make up their mind, diners can choose between the Trio Steaks featuring a 4oz picana, 4oz rib-eye and a 4oz bistro fillet, or the Belly Buster which includes an 8oz picana, 8oz rib-eye and an 8oz bistro fillet.  And that’s not all; diners can also fill up on a selection of pulled meats including pork, chicken and Tennessee brisket all cooked low ‘n’ slow which can be served as part of a sharing platter along with dishes such as beef short ribs, BBQ pork belly strips, and chicken wings.

Graham continued: “We have aimed a large portion of the menu at sharing boards. We offer a lot of different meats, so for example if a couple comes in they can choose a couple of different dishes to share together. It’s one of our main changes and is something quite unique to us.


“We also have a brand new cocktail menu and private dining area for parties and functions so people can get together and enjoy themselves in their own closed off space.”
