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

Solid eat but nothing special

I took my inlaws to visit for a nice experience down by the sea. The food was nice and in big portions despite being busy. The atmosphere was lovely (partly because it was a busy weekend with lots of families). We can't comment on the music as we took a table outside but the waiters were... read more

8 of us visited tonight, we didn't book a table and just showed up so managed to get a seat straight away. We ordered quickly and no issues so far at this point. Our food slowly came out and I mean slowly as the timings were all off therefore everything came out 1 by 1 which was as annoying. My... More

The crows nest being part of marstons have no control over ingredients or menu. However what they can control is the cooking and service. I was very pleased with both. The pub is clean and has a good atmosphere. Defiantly worth a visit if you want good value for money food.
