The Wife and I were enjoying a long weekend in Devon - specifically, we were staying in Babbacombe. We decided that it was obligatory to eat take-away fish & chips while sitting on a park bench and looking out to sea. There are two fish & chip shops in Babbacome, and one is the award-winning, Hanbury's - best in the... More

My wife and I enjoyed a family reunion at work restaurant last week and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It has been many years since we enjoyed freshly cooked fish and chips of this high standard. Living abriad, most fish and chips we buy would be a frozen catered product which would pale in comparison. Not only were the fish and chips... More

Very good fish and chip establishment. We visit here every time we are in Torquay. Service can be a little slow. But be patient it's worth the wait.

A good f&c meal in pleasant surrounding our 2nd visit. I do feel the prices are getting a little high tho at £30 for 2 meals including tea. Had to pay as extra for peas. Price included 10% tip for excellent service.

Had our takeaway fish and chips from Hanbury's again this week and as always they live up to expectations. Crisp golden batter and lovely chips, served in boxes so they don't go soggy on the way home!

Having 3 hungry children after a 2 hour journey, we thought we'd grab some fish and chips and try this 'award winning' take away. I was not told at the time of ordering that there would be any wait on the food, however it took 20 minutes, meanwhile I have children screaming in the car (I would have gone elsewhere... More
