I visit the Seafarer a lot, my order is a Cumberland Curl with Chips. Truly scrumptious. Service is always great and food never lets me down. Try it for yourself you won’t be disappointed

The sea farers is an old favourite of Northwich people, it has it's regulars and seems to be open 24/7. Always good food, never changes....recently celebrated a big anniversary.....a corner stone of Northwich, long may it continue.

Living local to The Seafarer I have been a few times & it has been really good... However the last time I went I was disappointed extremely. The fish was disgusting it tasted awful, overcooked & greasy, I will say that I won't be returning due to being sick shortly afterwards. Be careful!

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
