So how many people know that The Seafarer was actually opened by none other than a certain George Best ? I have been visiting this chippy for what, 35 years now, and it has not changed one bit from its origins - I swear they still have the same tables, and this isn't a bad thing. What I always liked...

Always open. This chippy has a sit down area. Everything you could wish for in a chip shop, very efficient staff, they move like lightening. Good food and lots of it.

Nuff said... some of the competition should pay a visit to see how a good `old fashioned fish and chips` should be done

Fish was a bit greasy, but nice white fish. Staff need a bit more get up & go attitude especially at clearing away plates from empty tables after taking your order, We were also given 4 sets of cutlery for a meal for 2.. ??? Price £18.30 with t bread & butter

The Seafarer is located in the centre of Northwich with ample free parking (3 hours free so you can also explore Northwich). This is a traditional Fish and Chip shop with a restaurant annex. Because of this you can see your food being cooked and served as is usual in a "chippy". The seating was comfortable and the menu also... More

We saw this on our travels and decided to try the restaurant out on a Friday. It is a fancy place but good wholesome food and warm welcome. We both had Haddock and Chips (Standard Size) which were glad we didn't order large as the fish covered the plate. The chips were proper large chips, crispy on the outside but... More

A very expensive fish and chip shop. The fish are on the small side. The one thing going for it it that one can sit in.

Great chip shop in the centre of Northwich and also has a great restaurant too with loads of comfy seats. They serve up all your usual family chip shop favourites and also offer lunch time specials. Very popular with the locals and really busy most tea times especially on a Thursday/Friday and Saturday. Open 7 days a week including its... More
