“Birthday lunch”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

This restaurant was featured on local TV last week as the award winner for fish and chips in the West Country, so we decided to try it out.
Well located near to the cliff railway there is a wonderful view of the bay. Well situated for car parking ( about 20yards away). The restaurant had some cosy booths where the very friendly and efficient staff serve the award winning fish and chips, its easy to see how they aquired the award. The generous portions of fish were covered by a lovely light batter - one of our party would have prefered a heavier batter- the chips were light and crispy . We chose a very enjoyable white wine from a comprehensive drinks menu. Altogether a truly British Lunch.
Recommended and would go back.

“GREAT FISH AND CHIPS”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

As a northener I pride myself on my knowledge of fish and chips and these were top notch. The portions might have been a little bigger but I am a bit on the greedy side.

“Welcoming staff, cosy atmosphere good food”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Lunch for three last Friday. Very busy but staff still very attentive and friendly. Very good light batter and large cod was large. This is a fish and chip restaurant and as such is a very good one.

“Friday and Sunday evening meals at Hanbury's”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Excellent fish and chip restaurant. Pleasant service and atmosphere. Nice cosy alcove table and interesting decor compliment the outstanding fish . On the Friday I had beautifully fresh Lemon sole for the same price as Plaice as they had sold out of Plaice. On Sunday I had pan fried plaice with new potatoes and petit pois as a superb alternative to deep fried fish. Delicious !
