    You must have some air leaks in the flue from your lounge. You might need to get the flue re-lined.

    Has there been a gas fire in the lounge at some point? I believe gas fumes can eat away the mortar joints in the flue, this often manifests itself when a solid fuel fire replaces a gas appliance. Think its been known in semi's with flues built into party wall for smoke to enter the neighbours flue and/or house! As said, line chimney, problem should be cured.
