Great Fish and Chips

Probably the best we have tasted outside of Whitby, I had fresh Brill and it was "BRILL" the batter is so light and thinly coated yet crispy and very tasty and the chips cooked just right.

Passed Hanbury's many times and on this particular trip decided to give it a go and I must say it was very nice indeed. I had a large Cod and Chips and my Mum had Gammon Ham with medium chips. The Fish was beautiful, well coked with light crispy batter, the chips were also very nice and again well cooked.... More

This restaurant boasts awards of Best fish & chips in the UK, and they were superb, cooked to order. Just a 3 - 4 min walk down the street and you can enjoy them whilst enjoying stunning views over Babbacombe Bay. The meals are served in boxes which makes it nice and convenient to eat whilst outside. The restaurant is... More

Thursday 19th March 2015, Called in lunch time just as you were about to close, We were greeted with a smile and a bit of banter by the staff and made very welcome. This was as if we were the first couple in the door when you had opened. Our Fish meal was the best that I have had for... More

This restaurant was recommended by my parents who had visited previously. We turned up on spec with no booking (after all it was 7pm on a Thursday night), the place was heaving !!. We were greeted very politely and were informed there was a 30 minute wait. We booked a table and went 100 yds to the local pub for... More

The natural friendly service really stood out before we'd even ordered. The food didn't disapoint either. Simple, plentiful, tasty and very good value. Something for all ages. Service swift but not rushed. Our party ranged from 15 to 85 in age and we all equally enjoyed the evening. Great atmosphere. Would definitely go back.
