I did hold hanburys in very high esteem, but the quality seems to have gone down a little. The fish was a little dry. I find presentation very important in wether I enjoy a meal or not, and for some reason they now serve the tartare sauce and curry sauce in paper pots. To me this is very takeaway and... More

We have been visiting Hanburys for several years now and can happily say we have never had a less than outstanding meal at the establishment. The chips are cooked perfectly, not too much or too little oil and the quality of food is fantastic. Although I do not eat fish myself, the halloumi salad and chips was delicious, and the... More

We learnt of this restaurant through a tourist leaflet so found it by day and booked a table and glad we did as when we were sitting in the restaurant so many people could not get in and dine. Great staff and despite being busy service was prompt throughout. Fantastic fish and chips and kids portions were of good size... More

The decorations were great. It is very busy you may have to make reservations. It is within walking distance of Headland View. The coasters and paintings are very cute. The food was very good and the portions were huge.

We placed our order and then took our chips out to eat while admiring the view of the sea! They were delicious and great value. We also loved the fact you could buy a fish and chip bag to keep them warm if you were taking them further a field!

We usually have the take-away option but booked a restaurant meal tonight. Knowing how busy they always are we thought there might be a delay but there wasn't. The lovely hot food was well-presented by a pleasant young lady who managed to find time to have a few words with customers despite being under pressure. The length of the queue... More

Having heard Hansbury's name being mentioned a few times during a holiday to Devon we visited the restaurant expecting some quality food. A family of 5 and on a limited budget we were put off by the prices of the restaurant menu. However, we went to the takeaway and got value for money. Overlooking The Downs and eating fresh Cod...
