Stopped here on our way home from a family day out on Saturday and as usual it didn't disappoint. We decided to sit in as there was a queue to the door (which is never a bad thing in my eyes) the restaurant side was quite busy too. We picked a table to sit at and within 5 minutes we... More

Having ordered my meal, which was pleasant enough (They forgot to put the mushy peas on, but it saved £1.20), I asked for the WiFi password only to be told that it was restricted to the office staff upstairs. Why on earth would you use the name "Seafarers" for your WiFi if you did not want customers to know about... More

Went for tea tonight for the family, took nearly 30 mins to get served, got home and basically binned the fish, the haddock was disgusting, still skinned,full of bones and greasy beyond belief . Certainly by far the most expensive chippy in Northwich so would expect top quality food ..sadly I won't be making another visit soon

Definitely not to there usual high standards.... More

Picked up fish and chips on the way home from work, as it's usually the best. Unfortunately on this occasion the fish was none existent, just overlooked greasy batter with mounds of salt! Rang them to tell them(rather than write a review) and they were not interested. Will have to find another chippy now !

The Sea Farer has been established in the town for over 20 years and has constantly served high quality food both in the fish bar and restaurant. Very clean and tidy and well worth a visit.

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...
