Had Hanbury's fish and chips as a takeaway whilst staying for the weekend and didn't realise they closed at 9.00 pm. We must have looked hungry as they kindly let us in a couple of minutes past 9.00 pm and we were so glad they did - the fish and chips are worthy of their fame!

Went to hanburys today for lunch. We had one of our party in a wheelchair so we had booked a table and we were situated on a lovely, very large table in the corner. It was very easy for disabled access and there is a disabled toilet too. We had fish and chips with one of us having the burger... More

I can't comment about the food, just the terrible lack of service and extremely rude waitress. We asked if they were still serving food at 8.50, the waitress checked, said they were and said we would need to be quick. She asked what we wanted and I said I hadn't seen the menu. We were given menus as she stood... More

The fish and chips here are consistently excellent. Everything is cooked to order so you have to wait while it is cooked but the wait is worth it. Portion sizes are large so only order the large fish if you are really hungry. They have a restaurant where you can sit inside but the fish and chips taste even better... More

It is a while since I last dined there, but they do take-out and by my rekoning, it is the best fish 'n' chip place in Torquay.

We love hanburys and have done for a long time..... I love the restaurant, although it is quite dated and tired looking, the staff are good. My fall out is with the takeaway. Just had fish and chips, eating them on the downs, and the fish was very very oily and the chips likewise. I collected them from the takeaway... More

Good morning, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I was disappointed to read your comments. Hopefully my response will make readers realise why Trip Advisor cannot be relied upon to get a true picture of the business. 1. Restaurant decor: We have just had the whole restaurant refurbished with bright new colours, beautiful renovated tables, new... More

Good morning, Thank you for your review. I am disappointed you felt the fish was flat. We have a new frying range up in the kitchen and food is sent down within seconds of being plated up, so I was concerned to read this. I am also sorry you did not feel you could approach a member of staff to... More

Over in Babbacombe for evening walk and had takeaway fish and chips from Hanbury's. Had them many times here before and we are never disappointed. Always well cooked and not greasy. Nothing like fish and chips on Babbcombe downs on a lovely summers evening!

Lovely fish and chips. Also tried the burger with cheese and bacon. Great food at a reasonable price. Take away and sit on the sea front makes the experience all the better. Will be back when in the area again.
