Succulent fish, crispy batter. Great chips and perfect curry sauce to dip them in. Great atmosphere. They were also very kind when we walked in 15 mins before they officially opened. They found a table for us (on a Sat eve) and let my disabled mum sit and wait instead of throwing us out onto the pavement to wait!

After a shopping trip in Torquay my friend and I arrived a little late (just after 2pm) asking for a lunch table. Immediately offered a nice little table, 2 glasses of wine appeared as if by magic moments after requesting and our order of good old fish and chips arrived in about 15 minutes. The cod was totally beautiful, thick... More

We had been recommended to this fish & chip establishment and were not disappointed. Parking was not that easy but the service was smooth & efficient. We thoroughly enjoyed the food back at the apartment we were renting for our stay in Torquay.

Looked after by a lovely lady who has worked here for over 20 years, and she was friendly and professional. I had the trio of fish which were all delicious, the batter is as good as you will get anywhere. My wife had a poached haddock which was also delicious, and we both had their excellent chips. No room for... More

Hanbury's at Babbacombe, Torquay ticks all the boxes and it is little wonder they have been named Fish & Chip shop of the year several years running. The restaurant is well decored throughout having a nautical/seashore theme it is colourful, bright, clean and it is clear the staff enjoy working there due to their friendly, inviting and helpful attitude which...

Cod Royale, what more can I say? It's was delicious and the service was excellent!!! I would definitely recommend a visit and if you live in the area, anywhere else will disappoint you. Clean spacious restaurant with a car park next door and a very short walk to the seafront. Lovely people serving award winning food and never compromising on... More

We came here as a family of four 2 adults 2 children and the food and service was fantastic. The fish was beautifully cooked with a light crispy batter. The restaurant itself is really quirky inside and spotlessly clean inside. We enjoyed it so much my wife even purchased some place mats to keep as a reminder. Also the work... More
