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.
Great service and great food and drink. Good value for money
Again, another fabulous evening spent in The Lamp Room. The food and wine never fail to be anything less than excellent. There was also a lovely surprise as it was 25% off tapas.
Fantastic food and service
Food nice. Wine a little expensive. Friendly staff.
Beautiful food and fantastic service!
The food is always amazing and great selection of drinks available too. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere and always made to feel welcome.
Brilliant food, brilliant service good value for money and atmosphere was good. Only criticism would be a little more intimate for couples dining as we sat at a table for 4 and no divide to the next table but overall a “canny” little place! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Always top class service and out of this world tapas
Fantastic meal and cocktails beautiful too. Enjoyed the 25% off tapas 😀
Lovely meal. Me and my wife shared the seafood platter and a couple of Tapas dishes. The quality of the food was very high, and was very good value for money. Great service also, we had a lovely night, and will definitely be coming back.
Excellent offer :)
Food was absolutely beautiful will definately be back:)
I took my wife for her birthday and the whole experience from start to finish was amazing . The food was delicious , lovely atmosphere and all the waitresses were brilliant, so kind and friendly and made us feel right at home.
Lovely meal and atmosphere
Great evening sharing tapas with a friend. Lovely atmosphere, price and food.
The staff were exceptional on Saturday night.
Food was delicious atmosphere and design of the restaurant was really good also and service was fantastic it’s a shame I don’t remember the girls name and also would have loved to leave a tip but there is no option to do so on card which was a shame as I rarely carry cash.
Poor service on this visit. Items not as described on specials board and this was not communicated when we ordered. Side order of sweet potato wedges were left off order and eventually arrived after we had finished the rest of our food. These were deducted from the bill but we would have rather paid and had them with rest of the food.
Food and staff always amazing. We drive from Sunderland regularly to eat at the lamp room or even go for a coffee
Amazing Tapas will 100% be returning in the near future.
Service was brilliant. Food was amazing!
Brilliant food and the staff were so friendly and welcoming.
Lovely food and excellent service.
