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.

Visited Saturday evening with my partner, food was excellent as usual. Fillet steak with the garlic and Parmesan sauce is one of my favourite things. Lovely cocktails. Always a nice atmosphere and lovely friendly staff. I wouldn't go anywhere else for a steak. 10/10

Food and drink was over priced. Rude servers. Very average. I was disappointed as we went in November and it was very good. It’s sad to see it go so bad as the interior is nice

I took a friend for breakfast for the first time, I'm glad I booked as it was packed. We had to wait a while to be seen to as there was only one member of staff in view initially. Eventually we got sat at a table but I had to reach for the breakfast menu as we had waited a while again. However, once the rest of the staff appeared, very busy, they took our order & we enjoyed an excellent brekky. Service once we were attended to was friendly & faultless. I've been many times & not had to wait like this, possibly staff shortage on that day. It will not put me off going back, I LOVE the Lamp room. I wish I could have stepped up to help them!!

Had a very tasty and enjoyable steak & ciabatta in Lovely and comfortable surroundings. The service was excellent and nothing was a bother to them, even gave us a box to take home what we couldn’t manage to eat. Will definitely return.

First time that myself and Laura have been for Tapas. (Normally go on a Sunday morning for the amazing breakfast) First class food and service brilliant atmosphere. Will defiantly be back to try the other tapas. The waitress explained everything and we decided on 7 different dishes all were superb and we couldn’t finish them all as we were stuffed 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

We both had the half lobster for lunch, sticky toffee pudding for dessert and a coffee. First time my friend had visited the place and he was not disappointed. Would highly recommend and would come back to try the seafood platter you’s do on an evening

Always get a friendly welcome at the Lamp Room. Service was excellent and the food was fantastic, we had a selection of tapas and one of our party had fillet steak, which he said was beautiful. We had a great time, thank you.
