This is our local chippy. Food is always fine but must say do prefer the chatter and personal touch you get with the Hexham fish bar.

Great fish and chips always fresh so you might have to wait a few mins but worth it. Generous portions and do pizza , though we've never tried that.

Found the staff disinterested and the portions rather scimped, the fish was 'flat' not chunky and meaty and chips were fewer than a good portion. Did not like the atmosphere which was cold and unwelcoming. The OAP meal deal was expensive for what it was.

Very busy but definitely worth the wait. I had fish and chips and the portion size was really big and they tasted delicious. Even though it's not in the town centre it's really easy place to find only a few minutes from the Abbey.

A good quality fish and chip shop with good prices and friendly staff. The sea chef Hexham is quite hidden away in the priest lands estate but if you get here you won't be disappointed! When you get there it is accessible for anyone and a good amount of parking space. The fish and chips are superb and taste really... More

Tried this chippy after the reviews on trip advisor. The fish and chips looked good. But there was an unusual after taste particularly with the chips. The batter on the fish was nicely cooked and the fish was of good quality. However when compared with our regular chippy ( The King fisher, Wakefield) there was no comparison.

Good sized portions, tasty batter, moist fish and served hot. And wrapped up in paper you can eat out of rather than those awful polystyrene containers!! Recommended.
