With style and quirky charm in abundance, whether you’re stopping by for breakfast, a mid-morning bite, a business lunch, or meeting up with friends and family for a tasty evening meal, The Seaton Lane Inn is the place to be.
As one of many restaurants in County Durham, in the charming seaside town of Seaham, we have been proudly serving a choice of pub food, as well as new, more contemporary dishes that make for the perfect dining experience, be that for special occasions or a family holiday. Rather than sticking to the same old-same old, our menu changes with the seasons, and each dazzling dish is packed with seasonal ingredients that make it taste simply divine. The amazing team of chefs that we have here have crafted a wide range of dishes in an all-day menu that works, well, all day. To keep things even fresher, The Seaton Lane Inn team rustles up delicious rotating specials that are based on the freshest ingredients of the day. So, before you get settled in your seat to order, be sure to take a look at our specials boards. Who knows, you might just discover your next memorable meal.
On Sundays, you can enjoy The Seaton Lane Inn’s famous roast dinners with generous helpings of hand-carved, juicy meats, or our delicious Nut Roast served with all the trimmings. Relax, recharge, or celebrate by staying in our accommodation with a proper Sunday Roast, all topped off with the most perfect glass of wine from our extensive drinks menu. Sunday lunches are served from 12 noon to 5.00 pm. We want to make sure everyone has a good time here, which is why we have several vegan options that are ideal for those that choose not to eat meat. Try our Thai Red Vegetable Curry or our Halloumi & Mediterranean Vegetable Skewer with a Pomegranate Salad – sounds good, right?
There are few things better than taking in the sea air at Seaham Beach, or shopping until you drop in Newcastle Town centre and then heading back to our traditional yet modern inn, packed with all those features that make it feel like a home away from home. Put your feet up, order your favourite dish, and let our chefs do the cooking while you and your loved ones chat about the day you’ve just had. Our relaxed bar and spacious dining area make for the ideal venue to spend an afternoon or evening with loved ones. We also have a stunning orangery that is a picture-perfect backdrop for whatever it is you have planned.
When you arrive, whether fresh from your comfortable en-suite accommodation or are simply popping in from the town for a quick treat, you can expect the same friendly, northern welcome. Choose to dine in our stone-flagged bar area cosied up with that special someone, enjoying a sandwich and pint of cask ale, or take the whole family into the restaurant space and let them choose their favourites from our scrumptious children’s menu. Whichever eating option you prefer, we have it here at The Seaton Lane Inn.

Our Drinks Menu
A delicious, home-cooked meal is best served alongside the perfect drink. Luckily, the only thing as extensive as our food menu is our drinks menu. From locally brewed cask ales to wines from across the world - we have it all. For instance, our delicious handmade sandwiches go perfectly with a pint of chilled cider or lager, as do our glasses of red, white, and rose wine with our signature main meals.
Whatever you choose, it's sure to be the perfect accompaniment.Download Our Drinks Menu
