About The Lamp Room

The Lamp Room is a family run bistro holding a prime position on Seaham's seafront with amazing views of the North East Coast.

We pride ourselves on our fantastic freshly prepared food, locally sourced where possible and our friendly, approachable staff.

During the day we serve breakfast from 9am-11.30am with everything from a locally sourced bacon sandwich to our very own invention; the Miners Benedict, a twist on the eggs benedict but with Doreens black pudding and crispy Parma ham. Lunchtime starts at noon with dishes such as our Seaham Chowder, fresh half lobster and even our very own 'Parmo'. Our dishes are prepared fresh to order and we use fresh ingredients as much as possible.

Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday we serve fresh tapas, steaks and seafood from 5pm which again is all prepared fresh on the premises and usually served to a full house of customers who offer great reviews and return again and again.

We have a full alcohol licence and offer a concise selection of wines and beers. Cocktails are added to the menu to accompany our evening service with the famous Porn Star Martini being a firm favourite.

Our Sunday lunches are substantial and extremely popular with fresh roast meats, seasonal vegetables, huge Yorkshire puddings and all the trimmings.

We were very happy with the service and the sharing platter! When we stay at Seaham hall again we will be tempted to do room only as the breakfast was appalling at hotel!

Food was gorgeous, not gonna lie, albeit slightly expensive compared to a lot of places, definitely worth trying once and I probably will come back even though I live 20 miles away . Didn't get to try the desserts though as was topped up, also I can't fault the service though, the ladies were extremely friendly and very lovely..

All Tapas items were tasty except for the spare ribs - no flavour and chewy. Sad they didn't have Sangria.

The food here is amazing. Real value for money. It's always warm and cosy and the staff always help us choosing how many dishes to have and making recommendations. We were celebrating our recent engagement and we know one of the staff who had been working in the morning and left us two glasses of prosecco on our table for our arrival, and then the staff who served us also made us a dessert plate with congratulations written on it. They are second to none and so thoughtful. An absolute credit to your business.
