We opted for take-out so we could hike down to a bench overlooking the water and eat our yummy fish and chips. Wow, they were the best we've ever had! We had to go back the next day for more! The fish was so fresh and delicious!

To be honest I have had better fish and chips and I felt it was over priced. We chose to sit in so perhaps there was a surcharge.

Good evening, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I was disappointed to see that you obviously did not feel you experienced something very special at Hanbury's. I have messaged you to ascertain the exact details as to why. In regard to price, we do have an extra charge in our restaurant for obvious reasons. The restaurant... More

Best fish and chips for miles. Slightly more expensive but very enjoyable. Very near Babbacombe downs, lovely to sit and eat them overlooking the sea. Highly recommend.

My husband Gordon would make a great tester for fish and chips. He can rate and compare them and does so but even he had to admit they were the best he had ever tasted. It is pricier than other places but the food, service, friendliness of the staff was worth every penny. The waitress was very attentive and gave... More

A pretty good fish restaurant with the usual stuff (cod/haddock/chips etc). Lovely sit down restaurant with a nice ambience and great staff/service. The menu is not cheap (Large Cod & chips £11.95) and the extras (beans/peas at £1.25 and pickled onions at £0.95) are pretty pricey. They don't have beer on tap so bottles of expensive Budweiser are on offer... More

Good evening, We thank you for your generous comments in which you referred to our 'Lovely sit down restaurant with a nice ambience and great staff/service'. However, we felt compelled to reply to the inaccuracies in the rest of your review. You stated that Rockfish was amazingly cheaper and that our large cod and chips ( in the restaurant) were... More

We went to Hanbury's after it was recommended to us by the owners of the hotel we were staying in. We arrived quite near to closing time at the lunch time opening hours and weren't sure if they would allow us to eat. However, the time of our arrival was not brought up and we were shown to a table.... More

Hanburys restaurant to sit down or Hanburys take away to squirrel home and eat at home - either way you can't go wrong - the food is always good. Any excuse to book at table and you will have a really special time because the staff are the friendliest, most helpful and always give such a warm welcome and a... More

The fish and chips is the best I've ever had. The batter was fresh and crispy, the fish was flaky and juicy. The mushy peas were a bit small pot but great The coke is the little bottles and if you can fit in desert, the chocolate orange icecream is just the ticket! Not cheap, but not overy expensive either.... More
