Good evening, Firstly, may I apologise for the poor service and the quality of the sausage and chips. I am pleased to hear the fish was of good quality. With regard to the speed of service, obviously this should not have taken so long. However, the reason some customers were being served quicker was that they were collecting telephone order... More

Had nice fresh cod with a light crispy batter and homemade chips. Very enjoyable. Only downside was one of the party had the large pork sausages - they were indeed large, but taste was very average & greasy, not up to the fish standard.

Good morning Thank you for your recent review. I am thrilled that you enjoyed your fish and chip meal with us. I was disappointed to read you found the sausages of a low standard. These are actually award winning local butchers sausages which we have not had an issue with before. However, I acknowledge that we cannot always be perfect.... More

My main interests are whoring and gambling, however sometimes one needs a nice comfortable meal with the family. When this is the case I like a good big battered fish and correctly fried chips, and this is what I find Hanbury's provides. Of course the chips may not be fried the way you like them, but that's the danger of... More

Lovely restaurant - we ordered fish, chips and mushy peas - absolutely delicious - very hot and we were not rushed. The staff were very friendly and did not rush us even though they were very busy. What was great we were offered a complementary glass of mulled wine and mince pie to finish off the evening - we would... More

Have been meaning to visit this every time we go there, and on this occasion we did, to find that every portion of food is individually cooked to order, and although this means a short wait, it was worth it! I love sausage and chips, and German Bratwurst especially, to my surprise the sausages delivered were very similar indeed, being... More

We chose Hanbury's mainly on the basis of TripAdvisor reviews, and we certainly enjoyed every moment of our visit. They weren't too busy, since it was midweek and out of holiday season, but this was simply the best fish and chips we'd ever eaten, the welcome was warm and friendly, and the ambiance of the restaurant was relaxing and fun....

Being local and a fairly regular take away customer it did not cross my mind to review Hanburys as wrongfully we residents tend to take it for granted. My elderly in laws love to have fish and chips (as do I) so on a Saturday so I join the queue for a supper of beautifully cooked haddock or one of... More

This is definitely a great Chippie. All fresh, and of high quality. Only downside is the queues when they're busy. But don't be put off though, it's worth the wait. All in all a great place for that special take-away. (they have a restaurant as well but I haven't eaten there. Bound to be good though as the food all... More

We opted for take-out so we could hike down to a bench overlooking the water and eat our yummy fish and chips. Wow, they were the best we've ever had! We had to go back the next day for more! The fish was so fresh and delicious!

To be honest I have had better fish and chips and I felt it was over priced. We chose to sit in so perhaps there was a surcharge.

Good evening, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I was disappointed to see that you obviously did not feel you experienced something very special at Hanbury's. I have messaged you to ascertain the exact details as to why. In regard to price, we do have an extra charge in our restaurant for obvious reasons. The restaurant... More
