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.

Just came back from here after visiting the seaham front, popped in as our last visit was very enjoyable and to warm ourselves up I enjoyed my rump steak which was cooked to perfection, I would have really loved a blue cheese sauce but the server said the menu is subject to the company and cannot get this, never mind,...

Called in for a meal whilst out having a wander and a little shop. It had been awhile since we had visited,and found that the service and food,surroundings and pleasantness of staff have remained first class. Food was delicious and excellent value for money. Waitresses Donna and Becca ensured we had a nice relaxing meal.

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.
