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

Regular chain restaurant

We had a family meal here, although we had not been here before my sister had and recommended it. She described it as a Witherspoon chain type place. We ordered a sharing platter between us as a starter and there was plenty for the five of us. However they gave us the hot wings sauce as a dip... read more

You can either feed a village or eat it all yourself. The farm house burger was epic. Good staff and nice view!

This is just round the corner from me and I often nip in for a pint which is always ok! On Friday my partner had some food and I won't be going again! I ordered surf n turf. I think the surf was frozen miniature prawns wrapped up in an uncooked slimy batter. The steak small and tasted old. 12... More

Decent pub bar staff are great but let down by basic standards. Called in one night recently for a drink and a bar meal and guys with football gear in the bar/restaurant !! sweaty gear on seats that the public have to sit on!!. Bad naïve management with little thought to the general public.
