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 Craig Liddell.
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.
My partner and I attended the lamp room for dinner on a Saturday evening. We ordered from the tapas menu and it did not disappoint. Lovely food and a good choice of dishes available. The staff were very polite but they were not very knowledgable about the food they were servicing when questioned. Excellent value for money and we will certainly be back.
Food was amazing one of the best steaks I’ve had cooked to perfection, the staff were really good checking everything was ok, the chips more like wedges with skins on which my hubby hates after he mentioned it to the waitress she got him a portion of skinny fries which made he’s meal perfect can’t wait to go back!!
Staff are very helpful and lovely food is gorgeous atmosphere is relaxing and friendly x
