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.
Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Food and drink service was fast. Absolutely first class food!
Brilliant service and excellent food! The tapas was delicious thank you we will be back!
Excellent tapas as always!
We had the tapas and most of the dishes were very good. The reason we've given a 2star for atmosphere was that we had booked the table for 745 and when we were ordering food we were advised that the kitchen was closing at 8pm. We would have come earlier had we realised. As it was we felt that we were being an inconvenience by the end of our meal, as staff were clearing up around us and we were the only people left in.
My husband & i really enjoyed ourseleves at the lamproom.. Service was great,,could not ask for friendlier staff & atmosphere was lovely,,sounds of ppl laughing & enjoying the night also was really good night..

Lovely selection of tapas
Fantastic food and excellent service
I came with some German friends and they were very impressed
Love, love, just love this little diamond of a place. Never fails to please in food, service. The staff, although nearly always very busy, go out of their way to be friendly, genuinely, to make sure each visit is pleasurable. I travel quite far to come here, SO worth it. Please, please keep it up, don't change like so many other places have.
Fantastic lunch with brilliant service!
Food was amazing and service was excellent, the only thing i would mention was that we had the tapas deal 5 for around £23.00 we ordered 8 but i think on the bill we got charged separately for each so didn’t end up getting the deal but we were so happy with the food we didn’t bother to mention it, we will definitely be back
Had a fabulous night eating tapas and drinking cocktails. Great food.
As always food was beautiful and staff were lovely. Our favourite restaurant. Definately be back x
Great food. Great service. We will definitely be returning.
Always enjoyed the food wether it’s tapas or Sunday lunch and the service is first class
I love the Lamp Room & visit a lot. However, on this occasion I was slightly confused. I booked online in advance for a table to tea out with a friend who hasn't been before. I had waxed lyrical about how excellent it is. I booked for 3.45pm. I got confirmation, but was requested to vacate the table by 5.15pm. No problem. We travelled from Washington after work to arrive & be told food isn't served after 3pm. However, as the kitchen staff were still there prepping for evening service, they kindly made us a meal which, as always was excellent. It felt rushed though, we knew the staff were wanting to get ready for the evening, so it spoilt it a bit. It won't put me off coming again, but the booking on line needs to be more clear that no food is available at certain times. Love everything about the Lamp room though, a minor blip.
Had a lovely Father’s Day breakfast. The staff were attentive and food lovely, will definitely return
