Beautiful batter

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... read 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

We have visited this fish and chip shop on several occasions, and the fish is always dripping in oil ! Yuk ! Chips not to bad. Going to find another place to visit, when we travel through Northwich.

Love the Seafarer. The best chips in Northwich, I would say. Although the restaurant has been modernised, the chip shop still has a traditional feel to it and it is nice to see a chip shop that hasn't sold out to kebabs, etc.

This place has always done the most amazing chips. And the curry sauce is to die for, its lovely!! It's always quick, I believe it's reasonably priced and good choice of foods. Some of the staff are a little miserable but they're weeding the ones out who have been there years..... All in all I wouldn't go anywhere else for... More

Far too exspensive for a chip shop when sitting inside and there are hidden costs. Will stick to my local and take away to eat at home
