We decided to eat in at Hanbury's last Friday lunchtime. Because we knew that they had won awards, our expectations were high, having eaten fish and chips at many award winning restaurants across the country. First of all the interior was delightful, I loved the stained glass windows and the lamps. The waitress was very pleasant and friendly. We each... More

We visit Torquay regularly, one our first night we went to the chip shop at Hanbury's and ate it at home, the cod was delicious so fresh and light. The chips were equally as yummy. Two days later we decided to visit the restaurant next door again the experience was as enjoyable as the first, our waitress was full of... More

Oonagh and I visited the takeaway last year,part of our decision to come back to South Devon was to enjoy "proper Fish and Chips" this time we ate in, the Meal was fantastic, it is just at a different level. We also enjoyed a great bottle of white wine and first class service. It is worth having a holiday in... More

While we've had meals in this fish restaurant and they've always been good, today we bought the lunchtime special of 'small' cod and chips at the take-away counter and then took them to eat on Babbacombe Downs. What could be nicer? A small portion is more than adequate for us, and with the whole of Lyme Bay in front of... More

3 of us visited Hanbury's on Monday evening and my husband had a large cod & chips with 2 large pickled onions, my sister in law and I had a medium cod & chips with 1 portion of curry sauce and if that wasn't enough we all had Eton Mess for afters. The quality of the cod & chips was... More

100% agree! (Not sure who/where No.1 is though!?) Chips were great and the batter on the cod was beautiful and crispy! Not a trace of grease anywhere! Great value for money, was expecting it to cost a lot more! We went to the takeaway section a bit further down the road and then sat overlooking the sea. Would absolutely recommend... More

It is a long way from London however whenever we are in Devon not to go here would be unthinkable! An amazing meal this evening with excellent service from Kevin. Tomorrow is my birthday and tonight was the start of the celebrations, nothing beats perfect fish and chips!

Brilliant Fish and chips. Well worth the extra to sit In And enjoy a leisurely meal. The sitting has been updated since my visit and looks very nice. I would return for another go at the chips shop because it is above any ordinary chip shop. No ordinary chip shop will do anymore! Has to be Hanburys!

Have been Torquay on holiday for many years, so whilst visiting babbacombe on the 1st September we just ordered 3 small chips and a small fish and chips. The chips where crunchy and so tasty, the fish batter was great and fish ever so tasty. Not like the soggy stuff we get dished up anywhere else. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
