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.
Excellent! Everything about The Lamp Room is excellent!
Great experience as usual.
Great food, great wine and staff very helpful and friendly
As usual the staff were attentive and professional, as well as having a sense of fun. The food (tapas in this case) was amazing. Lovely food at a good price, which means we can come here more often!
My wife and I visited the lamp room, as I wanted to try the tapas menu, and we were intrigued by the menu choices. We both enjoyed the delicious food that we chose, including the crab cakes, sticky ribs and the triple cooked chips and dips. The service was very friendly and unhurried, but our only gripe was that we were sat opposite a group of female diners who were rather vocal - Overall our experience of the lamp room was a very positive one, and we will definitely be booking a table with you very very soon.
First time eating on an evening and the food was amazing, thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely be back x
Lovely food, service a little on slow side. But would go again.
Beautiful food, friendly and helpful staff
Food, wine and service were all exceptional!!
Delicious food, excellent service and a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Delightful - I look forward to my next visit.
We often eat here and have found lunch and dinner to be great. We particularly like the tapas menu in the evening, lovely food and reasonable prices.
Our visit to the Lamp Room could not have been better. Excellent, friendlŷ staff, great setting and yummy food. We will definitely be returning next time we come to Seaham
Wedding anniversary meal , the tapas meal was lovely great value with 25% off we were stuffed and the staff were lovely from start to finish, never rushing us and nothing was an inconvenience
Lovely place for breakfast. Very nice polite staff. Only complaint was poached eggs could have been cooked a little longer. All 3 of us had them and they were a bit slimy. Wouldn't stop me going back tho.
Really great service and atmosphere
Attentive staff. Delicious food. Great value for money. We will be back!
Only positive things to say! Lovely food, decor and staff! Best Affogatto I’ve ever had x

First visit for husband’s birthday will definitely return! Food was amazing, service was excellent and menu choices are superb. Would recommend a visit. Thank you,
Really lovely experience from start to finish
Breakfast was absolutely lovely.
My partner and I attended the lamp room for dinner on a Saturday evening. We ordered from the tapas menu and it did not disappoint. Lovely food and a good choice of dishes available. The staff were very polite but they were not very knowledgable about the food they were servicing when questioned. Excellent value for money and we will certainly be back.
