Fantastic takeaway

Having decided to pick up lunch here from having a walk around walls hill we were amazed at the quality of the fish and chips here. The price is well worth the food as well as being so reasonable. Will definitely be returning.......

For my fiancés birthday treat I decided to take him to Dave Hanbury's as we'd been many times but before we were a couple. This was our first family return visit after nearly 9 years! Nothing had changed. The food was still as fresh, cooked to perfection, delicious and piping hot as we remembered. The portions are just right. The... More

Despite my initial reluctance to travel out of Torquay centre I was absolutely delighted to have been convinced by the rest of my group to travel west. Because if I did not join the trip to Babbacome I would have missed out on this amazing fish and chip shop. I am not sure which superlatives to start with when describing... More

When staying in Babbacombe/Torquay you must visit Hanbury! Simply the best fish & chips ever!! The fish is cooked is cooked in a wonderful crispy batter served on nice hot plates. Very friendly staff who managed to find us a table even though most tables were reserved for later. Make sure you book ahead to avoid disappointment. Highly recommended.

A return visit, having been a few times before. Never disappointed, this well run, long established, family run fish restaurant continues to deliver high quality fresh fish cooked to a very good standard. There is a separate takeaway shop adjoining the restaurant for those who prefer to take their meal along to the seafront close by. Well recommended !

While visiting Torquay we booked a table here as we were a large family party. We had many different things from the menu - although most of our party had cod and chips. We were not disappointed. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The lady who took our order was very helpful and pleasant. The restaurant was clean and comfortable.

Oh! We were so gutted recently on a four day break to Devon! We go to Devon regularly and were so looking forward to the usual fish and chips at Hanburys, but guess what? They were closed! We went on a Sunday and had completely forgotten that is their day off. Not good enough, ha, ha! So, we missed our... More
