Dinner at Seaham Hall

I'm back at Seaham Hall again for today's post. 

But no Spa or Afternoon tea for me this time. (You can read about my trips to the spa here and afternoon tea here

But this time for dinner. I've never been to the Brasserie at Seaham Hall before, I went last week with my family and some friends,  I brought my camera along to tell you all about it. 

I am completely obsessed by the water feature at the entrance.

We went inside and headed straight for the bar, naturally. 

Water for me. As I was driving and Emily kept me company. 

Emily and I did have a little wander in the garden. A few years ago I came to a wedding here and the photos are so beautiful. The gardeners at Seaham really do a great job. 

When it came to ordering my food I was't 100% sure what I wanted. The waiter knew his stuff.  

We were then shown into the dining room to be seated.

As you can see the restaurant was super dark. Even my Sony RX100iii struggled to get a good photo. But the dining room is so chic. The channellers are incredible. 

We have the most delicious bread before our starters. 

Tomato bread. Tasted just like pizza. 

Not long after our starters came. 

Emily ordered the scallop sausage. 

Which came like a weird mousse. They had the strangest texture.

Mam ordered the salmon.

While J and I ordered the potted shrimp. 

Firstly 10 out of 10 for presentation. I actually did think half of Seaham beach was on my plate but I loved it. They tasted delicious. 

On to the main course. I cheated, and actually got another starter for my main. 

The Crab and mango salad. I never would have thought about putting crab and mango together but it tasted so good. 

S had the stone bass with chorizo. Which she said tastes better every time she gets it. 

Emily and my Mam ordered the butternut squash and sage risotto. I actually have a killer recipe for this. It's that good when I used to work in a restaurant they actually used it. I'll post it later on in the year. 

The men ordered steak and chips. 

The chips were crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy in the middle. 

We all enjoyed a little tipple of red. 

Apart from me who only got to smell it. 

When we were leaving I didn't realise just how dark the main entrance to the hotel is. If you're going seriously take a torch. I was pretty scared. The car park was pitch black and could hardly see anything. 

A great night at Seaham hall again. Next time I visit I'm going to make sure it's for Sunday lunch.
