A Family friendly pub with a great atmosphere. Standing proud on the sea front of Seaham,this fantastic community pub really does offer something for everyone no matter what the day,time or occasion. Not only do we offer a fantastic and extensive food menu but this is now complemented with daily deals from Wedneday to Saturday straight from our hot deck. We have a sumptuous Sunday carvery and a brilliant weekend breakfast buffet. All of this can be enjoyed in our brilliant bar,fabulous family section or cosy snug where you can wash it all down with a pint of our very own Crow's Nest Ale or a well-deserved glass of wine.Not forgetting that the Crow's Nest is the best place around for catching up with friends.Treat yourself at the weekend and enjoy one of our great range of lagers,bucket of bottles or one of our new range of cocktails. It doesn't stop there, being part of the community we have a weekly quiz, Charity events, a monthly band and plenty of other activities to make sure that everyone feels like the Crow's Nest is home away from home

Great pub food and service at the Crows nest - plenty of choice of meals from burgers to scampi to Mexican enchiladas! Something for everyone. Very reasonably priced and a good sized pub with plenty of seating.

I have been the crows many times in the past and have previously given a good review on trip advisor however this time i was very unimpressed. Myself and my mother ordered burgers as we didn't fancy the Sunday carvery. The breakfast burger was dripping in grease with a manky bit of old lettuce. The presentation was poor with a... More

Wife and I eat here quite often - I love the vegetarian lasagne. However breakfast buffet at weekends is a bit hit and miss. Just been this morning with wife, daughter and granddaughter - not impressed. Opening time is billed as 9am. At 9:10 we were about to walk away to somewhere else when the doors were grudgingly opened. Excuse... More

My wife and I have frequented the Crows Nest several times since the previous so called Landlord ran this pub. We both agree that there has benn a noticeable transformation since the current Landlord took over. A transformation that has revitalised the pub by providing a far superior service and delicious food. Well done!
