The standard of the fish served here is always worth not going to the chippy down the road! It's always great quality, a and you can completely taste the difference from the average chippy!

We live a short walk away from Hanbury's and make a point of visiting a couple of times a year just to check that the standards haven't slipped and to feek a bit like a tourist. Well the standards haven't slipped over the 20 years that i've been going there, still the best fish and chip shop in the region.... More

Popped on here for an early tea amd tasted the best fish batter for a very long time . The cod was so tasty but the batter made it The cafe is fairly ordinary but good for authentic food Used the take away too amd to be honest is a better bet

The majority of our... More

I usually have fish & chips from Kingfishers at Plympton which are excellent but was staying with a friend in Torquay so we had fish & chips from Hanbury's. They were very nice & we had medium, the portion size was a lot smaller than the Kingfisher's medium (both fish & chips) so that was slightly disappointing as it actually... More

Good morning, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am very pleased that you enjoyed your meal with us. I was disappointed to hear that you found our medium sized fish and chips quite small, as we believe our medium portion is adequate and some customers find them to be quite generous. I wondered whether maybe... More

We had excellent service from a friendly, funny, slightly crazy waitress! The fish and chips were certainly up there with the best I've ever had. The batter was light and crispy and not at all greasy. The restaurant's decoration was quirky and there were lots of unusual things that caught my eye. Paintings by Liz Jones were hanging on the...

When I use to live in babbacombe i regularly frequented with friends this beautiful friendly professional restaurant... Living in London but occasionally visiting Torquay this place is still the best ever fish and chips for all to enjoy... The reviewer who criticises spending 21 pounds doesn't have a clue what he's talking about.... If you want cheap soggy rubbish go... More

Was told I must get a takeaway, from this multi award winning restaurant. Does it live up to the hype? I'm afraid it doesn't. Was also disappointed with the unnecessary wasted paper and cardboard which the food was presented in. Not very green either.
