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

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
