We came here on a Friday evening. As they don't take bookings we arrived and had to put our name down to wait for a table. Not an issue as a very short walk away is the lovely view of the coast, we waited about 15 mins before they gave us a call for our table. I ordered a trio... More

After a dire cod meal at the Beefeater, what a wonderful example of British cod and chips at Hanburys. We booked beforehand to make sure we got a table. Wonderful waitress, nothing too much trouble. The medium cod is plenty big enough with chips and mushy peas, it was excellent. Lovely decor and reasonably priced drinks. A meal to remember.... More

We always head to Hanbury's for takeaway as soon as we arrive in Babbacombe. This time I had plaice off their specials menu which was excellent. Being a Friday evening they were incredibly busy so unfortunately weren't taking telephone orders and the queue was out into the street but they take orders pretty quickly. There was a twenty minute wait... More

Visited their restaurant on Wednesday evening about 19.30 hours and got a table for two even though we had not booked. I had viewed the establishment online beforehand and was totally satisfied that we would have a good experience and we were not disappointed. It is the only fish restaurant that I can say does poached cod and haddock which... More

The hotel we were staying in (The Albaston) mentioned Hanbury's when we checked in so we decided to give it a go on the first evening. We got take away fish and chips and sat eating them on one of the clifftop benches - a perfect start to our little holiday. We enjoyed it so much that we decided to... More

Not quite sure what the fuss is all about with this place, agree with other reviewers had far superior fish and chips on the bay elsewhere. On the other hand got to see babbacombe, which is a lovely place to visit.
