Visited here just before a theatre visit over the road at the memorial court- had a pre theatre offer on. Lovely meal, great service and great value for money!

Yummy fish and chips when you want a completely ordinary meal. Good value, good quality product. Very enjoyable.

Never sat in to eat only take away, if anyone knows Northwich well enough they'll say decent places to get food is limited, well that's definitely what I think and this is one of the better ones when you don't want to be cooking after a busy late finish from work

Called in one evening on the way home for a take away fish supper. The large haddock was freshly cooked to perfection, sadly the experience was spoiled by chips that were were cold and stale, they looked and tasted as if they were left over from the lunchtime session😕. We have used this chippy before and it's always been satisfactory,... More

I used to love this chippy but it has slipped in standard chips are soggy and greasy need to be fried longer

This is the most expensive and usually the best chippy in town, went there last night about 5pm. Chips a mixture of nicely cooked and over coowed. Steak and kidney puds tasted weird (sweet), meat and pother pie not very nice either. Nothing like usual standards.

At its best it is the best fish and chip bar in town. However it appears very inconsistent as every time I go in the staff have changed and maybe that's the reason. The food is always hot as it is so popular and therefore there are no standing fish and chips going cool. Well worth a try though.

We had recently started going to the seafarer and made about 3 trips. (Take out). The first two times everything was fine and the fish cooked fresh and delicious. However our last visit about 2 weeks ago on a Friday night, was very disappointing and the fish was overdone, dry and "skinny". I saw another person dining in make a... More
