“Excellent in every way! You must visit this Award Winning Restaurant!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Over the years my family have regularly visited Hanburys Takeaway and Restaurant and its top quality food and excellent friendly service means we will continue to do so.
This seriously is the best fish and chips that I have tasted! They may have come 2nd in the UK best fish and chips of the year but in my opinion they were robbed! I have tasted fish and chips all over the world and nothing compares to Hanburys (especially when the owner Dave is frying!).
We recently visited the Takeaway for Hanburys 30th birthday when they were offering take away fish and chips at a discount with all the proceeds going to Rowcroft. Dave Hanbury regularly holds charity events that my family have attended as they support Rowcroft so it is great to enjoy fantastic food and raise some money for a great cause at the same time.
For anyone who wants to eat out in the Torbay area - seriously go and visit Hanburys Restaurant with its fantastic character, superb staff and even better food at a reasonable price.......or alternatively if the weather cheers up why not take takeaway fish and chips to sit on Babbacombe downs to overlook the breathtaking scenery - a favourite past time of mine as my family has been doing this for 20 years or so. The cod royale is seriously tastey if you want to try something a little different, it has a layer of smoked salmon inside the batter - yum!

“The best”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Hanburys sell the best fish & chips that I have tasted anywhere in the world. Always the best quality fish, lovely batter & well cooked chips. There is nothing better in this world than sitting on Babbacombe Downs on a sunny evening looking over beautiful Torbay & eating Hanburys fish & chips. Or if its wet eating in Hanburys restaurant. Keep up the good work Dave & team.

“The way fish and chips should be!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Love Hanburys! They have a brilliant reputation, famous infact! The food is brilliant quality, really unusual choices of fish, gorgeous chips, a real treat. We use the takeaway and the restaurant and it's the only time I will have fish and chips as they use really good oil for deep frying, you can taste the difference. Fantastic business, long may they flourish!

Just love the fish and chips here; in summer eat them sat on Babbacombe Downs enjoying the view and when the weather's not so good the restaurant is very good.

“Amazing food, amazing business, amazing generosity!”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

I returned to Hanbury's yesterday to support their incredible fundraising day for Rowcroft Hospice - where they were offering a 30% discount on all medium Cod and chips, with all profits going to Rowcroft.
I ordered 3 portions with curry sauce and mushy peas, within 5 minutes my order was ready and boxed by the very smart and helpful staff.
As usual the food was piping hot and to die for - Hanbury's deserves every award they win and more in my eyes! You simply cannot beat their fish & chips - full stop!
They deserve and award of recognition for all the incredible fundraising they have done over the years - raising literally hundreds of thousands of pounds for local causes!!
Keep up the amazing work guys and keep serving that amazing food - never battered......sorry bettered!!! :-)
