Go most Fridays for take away , a bit hit and miss when it comes to service and value for money , portion sizes do vary from week to week , saying that is always busy and the food is good .

We had takeaway. Not long to wait and cooked fresh, it was the best fish and chips ever. When we move down to Torquay this will be our local, can't wait

The fish was a little greasy, the chipps were adequate but only just. The staff was good, but a little under pressure to smiile a lot, just a thought, better than a harbur side chippie but only just!! Don't think we'll bother again!

I've got to admit that I was expecting better. The food was fine, no real complaints but I was expecting to be wowed and wasn't. Better than your average chippy but pricier also. Two medium cods, a large chips and large mushy peas came to over £13.

I can honestly say I have never tasted a better fish and chip meal in my life. Their fish is never greasey or oily the chips are fresh and the level of service you get from the staff is flawless. This is the only place we as a family we go to get our fish and chips

I have been visiting Hanburys for many years. Dietary restraints have limited my visits of late but I occasionally allow myself a treat of Large Cod and Small Chips, just great ! The atmosphere in the restaurant is wonderful and the staff are a joy !!
