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
Love breakfast at the lamp rooms it's excellent. Would definitely recommend. Love the American Pancakes and husband and son loved the full breakfast. The coffee is also really great.
Traveled from Newcastle. Lovely little place, lovely location, delicious food. Free parking is always a bonus.
Fab food reasonable prices lovely decor what’s not to love about this place
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!!
The only thing I would have said is you need more people serving.
Fabulous food would deffo visit again
Great location, lovely food, pleasant and friendly staff. Love to visit the Lamp Room for food or just a coffee.
Lovely decor , fab food and a lovely atmosphere ! What’s not to like ?
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.
Fabulous food & service! Our first visit to Seaham and could not have picked a better place for our evening meal to celebrate my wife's birthday and mother's day too!!
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 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I love the lamproon the staff are excellent it was my friends birthday and they organised a dessert for her with a candle and happy birthday message they went above and beyond ... fabulous
Lovely food great price Excellent staff good environment
Our favourite place to eat the tapas is amazing, staff are the best and prices are excellent for such a lovely place
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
Excellent food and excellent service thanks very much
