About The Lamp Room

The Lamp Room is a family-owned bistro style restaurant situated on the beautiful seafront promenade in Seaham, Co. Durham. It prides itself on serving fresh, locally sourced food, prepared on the premises by a team of chefs headed by Dan Lindsay.
The menu in The Lamp Room is wide and varied. For breakfast choose from their speciality Miners Benedict - eggs benedict with black pudding, a full english breakfast or american style pancakes. Lunch time sees an adventurous 'Specials Board' which can often feature dishes such as Fresh Lobster Sandwich, Seafood Linguine, Green Thai Curry or Fish Chowder. Afternoon Tea and High Tea are served every day by pre-order only and on a Friday and Saturday evening they open their doors to serve fresh tapas and seafood. Tapas dishes (Friday/Saturday) are freshly prepared every week with a menu of around 22 dishes to choose from. Saturday evenings, the 'Seafood Platter' features amongst an eclectic selection of other dishes alongside the tapas. If you visit on a Sunday, if not sampling a delicious breakfast you can indulge in a freshly cooked Sunday Roast which includes a choice of carved meats with fresh vegetables and homemade yorkshire puds!
In addition to fabulous, fresh food The Lamp Room serves a fantastic cup of Barista made coffee, selected teas, frappes, milkshakes and speciality hot chocolates.

Was very disappointed after seeing all the nice posts on face book about the fillet steaks we eventually managed to get a baby sitter for the night and come to your restaurant only to be told by 7.45 there was no fillet steaks and no ribeyes only sirloin available, waitress was very nice and the tapas was ok but not what we had looked forward to.

Visited The Lamp Room today for a special birthday breakfast for my wife who was celebrating her 50th birthday. On arrival we were directed to one of the booths and my wife was presented with a glass of bubbly how amazing 👌🥂 breakfast arrived shortly after. Eggs benedict for the birthday girl and full breakfast for me. Food was amazing quality and very well presented. Added gesture from the girls was a chocolate brownie with birthday wishes wrote in chocolate... how fab... made my wife’s special birthday so much more special... massive massive thanks to The Lamp Room staff 👌

I can’t recommend this place enough. Me and my friend have wanted to try it out for ages. The atmosphere was amazing and we loved the music (Boyce cover album) the food was absolutely incredible - the only issue was there was TOO much choice so we’re going to have to come back again for everything else we wanted to try! And your staff are the nicest most polite staff we’ve ever had the pleasure of being served by. There was a girl with long dark hair working Friday night, absolutely gorgeous and her manners were incredible. You should be very proud of her. Thank you for a lovely night. We will be back!

Adrianne (I think - seen it on the bill) was amazing serving us during our visit. Absolutely brilliant, personable service, very attentive and certainly gave a fantastic first impression and looked after us throughout our meal. The food was sensational. Perfect Lobster and amazing fillet steak. Well worth the money. I can’t wait to come back without the car to make my way down the cocktail list!
