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.
Really good food very friendly service
Fabulous food and service
The Kamp Room is a really good find.
Would have liked to see an alcohol free beer option. Brew dog "Nanny State" is an excellent choice. And some bread on the table would have been nice. However very pleasant meal with excellent service
Another amazing meal that was so reasonably priced
Food was lovely couldn't fault it. However, staff weren't very attentive and at one point I think they possibly forgot about us. Sat for 20 mins and waited for someone to bring the dessert menu over or grab someones attention to ask again.
It would be nice to have an area you could wait if arriving early or waiting for your table to be ready as it was a bit off putting having to stand around tables where people were eating
Lovely place to go especially on a weekend evening as the tapas menu is fab. Book early for this as if you go about 20.30. the kitchen closes at 21.00 so there isn't the time to order your tapas a few at a time. Staff always friendly and knowledgeable about what is on offer. Have visited 3 times this week.
Above and beyond what we expected, absolutely delicious food, wonderful service, and a lovely atmosphere....we will be back! Thank you for a lovely evening
Recommended by my son & he was right, lovely food & a great menu. Very helpful & friendly staff.
Sorry but was very disappointed with my food will not be going back.
Wonderful sharing fish platter with an ice cold Sauvignon. Great way to celebrate our birthday. Loved it!
Enjoyable lunch, good menu choice and excellent service.
Staff were great. Food was lovely 😊
Hadn't been for about 12 months and it will be at least that before we chance it again. We had the tapas, which we'd previously had and loved, unfortunately this time they weren't so good with a couple being very bland. The cocktails we had were lovely and the front of house staff were really friendly and dealt with our dissatisfaction appropriatley.
went here on friday for tea with the other half and in laws.. beautiful food and lovely service as always
Lovely food and great cocktails. Never disappointed. All the staff were lovely and my friends have never been on an evening before they loved it. The garlic and Parmesan sauce is to die for. A great evening all round. 5 stars
We visit the Lamp Room regularly, been 6 times in the last month, twice in the evening and for breakfast the other 4. Every time the food and service has been excellent. Tapas is tasty, beautifully cooked and great value, fillet steak and lobster also great quality. Breakfast offers a good choice and has always been fantastic, poached eggs cooked to perfection, good quality bacon sausage and black pudding. Great pancakes too. Service has always been prompt and friendly. Friday evening our young waitress was a credit to your restaurant and she was there again on Saturday morning with a lovely smile on her face. We only live 2 minutes walk away and it’s great to have The Lamp Room so near. Always a pleasure
Great food and service. The triple cooked chips were amazing!
Lovely restaurant with pleasant attentive staff. Will be back.
Really enjoyed our breakfast. Friendly atmosphere, great food and good service. I love the decor and it won’t be long before we’re back!
Another outing for me to the lamp room and, again, it did not disappoint. Excellent food and wine, what more would I need? I will certainly be back.
Service was good, food was delicious, pricing is perfect
