Great Lunch, Best Fish and Chips in Torbay.

Had a great lunch today. I had the Huss, really lovely and fresh. The bone had been removed as well. Jeff's cod was really good and like my huss, the batter was nice and thin. The chips were hot, fresh and not at all greasy. Staff were friendly and efficient, nothing was to much trouble. Love the... read more

This was our first visit here. For a fish restaurant the décor and attention to detail was superb. If you like fish the menu was wide and varied. Service from the staff was first class and they could not do enough for you. My meal of Haddock & chips with mushy peas was very tasty. The fish was done in... More

Collected our take-away fish and chips after a short wait. Then, after a short stroll, ate them on a bench on the cliff top overlooking the sea - perfect! There is seating next door in the restaurant but as it was such a lovely evening we decided on take-away service.

Wonderful fish & chips (my wife even ate the batter!) and on a nice day the view from the cliff top is just delightful.. Top marks all round..

We first tried the fish and chips from Hanbury's about 6 years ago, when we lived about an hour's drive away. These fish and chips are well worth the drive. Now that we only visit Devon as holiday makers, usually staying in Dawlish Warren, we have to make the drive at least once in our stay. (This drive should take... More

We arrived hoping to eat without booking on a Friday evening. Kevin fitted us in. Janet and Kevin made us feel welcome, even though they were rushed off their feet. The fish and chips were delicious. There was good humour from the staff as well as excellent service. Can't recommend enough but you must book.

A group of us on holiday went to Hanbury's for an evening meal. The food was superb, the surroundings really comfortable and well-thought-out. The service was admirable with gentle humour as standard! A memorable experience and well worth seeking out.
