The Lamp Room

The name originates from the room where miners would collect lamps before their shift.

As Seaham is such a close-knit community, holding it’s heritage close to it’s heart, choosing a relevant name was essential.

Visit to tapas Visited for the first time for tapas last week a party of 6 adults. One of our party was celebrating a birthday the staff brought out a cake we supplied and sang to him then repeated it when they found some candles. Meal was very nice would definitely recommend staff very friendly especially the girl with blue hair (sorry didn't get her name)

Fantastic food First visit to area so looked on trip advisor where to get breakfast and this came up as best so gave it a go and was not disappointed. Great menu and delicious food . Highly recommend full English ,and the eggs Benedict was really tasty with the ham hock . Would certainly return if in the area again , only downside is dogs are not allowed inside so it’s outdoor seating only which is fine in a dry day but not so great on a bad day .

Outstanding food and service Absolutely outstanding. We popped in for lunch after a morning of hunting for sea glass on the beach. The service was great and the food was fantastic. I had the goats cheese focaccia and my fiance had the fish tacos and they were both excellent. Really good value for money too. If we didn't live so far away I'd be back next weekend!

Lovely food and great service in the Seaham microclimate A work colleague recommended this place as her favourite to have a a nice brunch in but, by the time we’d trundled up the road to Seaham, it was already lunch service but not to worry. We should have looked at the menu and noticed that! Our own fault. Never mind, we were famished regardless!! We’ve both been doing the “No Carbs Till Marbs” diet in the vain hope that, come mid May, we won’t get harpooned on the beach in Greece so consequently, having shed a few Kgs, if we were going to have a “cheat day”, you may as well go for it properly! 😊 We both opted for the Vegan Buttermilk Chick'n Burger which came with a side order of sea salt dusted fries. The burger was served in a toasted brioche bun and anointed with vegan cheese, chilli jam, hash brown, crispy lettuce, pink onions and pickles. It never stood a chance as it’s the first time we’ve seen a potato in a month! LOL Really enjoyed it. Delicious food and great service. What more would anyone want? The micro climate of Seaham and the blue skies made for a lovely trip out and a nice change. Will definitely be back - ideally earlier, so we can have breakfast!
