We're Torquay residents and we never ever go anywhere else for our fish and chips, it's not worth taking the risk. We're never ever disappointed.

Thought I would see if the fish and chips were as good as the hype, well I wasn't disappointed. Lovely crispy batter just right amount to complement the fish. The chips were yummy very tasty. Would highly recommend if you are in Devon, give this place a visit, we had takeaway however they do have a restaurant as well.

Sat evening 6:00pm turned up without a reservation (best you get one of these for this award winning restaurant), expecting something a lot different to the great experience we ended up having. We were greeted by a very friendly and accommodating staff member. She managed to find us a suitable table (3 adults and 2 young children).

Inside the restaurant (this is NOT a fryer café), we had a nice bench table that fitted us comfortably. Decor looked rustic with nice coloured lamp shades.

Fish and Chips all round, girls (2 and 5) shared a children’s meal which they eat heartedly. Food was lovely, batter was crisp and light, and fish was a good size, chips were also cooked well. Pudding was a good size and all in all was good.

Although the main restaurant toilets are located up stairs there is a large disabled toilet on ground floor which has baby changing facilities (top marks for cleanliness)

We agreed to be out my 7:30pm but having said this no pressure was made on us to leave as 7:30 approached.

Total meal cost was very good value.

Will we return, oh yes definitely.

This place is amazing.
Im not a major fan of fish and chips but heard this place was the best so had to give it a try. My family and I loved it. Fish was fresh and cooked to order. Chips were perfect.
Highly recommended. ..Can't go to devon without trying this place.

I have never ever been disappointed with the fish and chips served at Hanbury's. The chips are perfectly cooked and the fish, with a superb, thin layer of crispy batter, is succulent and tasty. The takeaway fish counter has a modern, stylish and welcoming look about it and the staff are always friendly and courteous. Eco-friendly cardboard cartons are used (no polystyrene or that annoying greaseproof sheet that rips the batter off the fish!!) and chip forks and hand wipes are provided. All perfect for sitting on a bench on Babbacombe green and enjoying the sea view - watch out for seagulls though, they like Hanburys' too!! The restaurant is great with a range of choices on the menu and a wine list. This is perfect for a pre-theatre meal!! Well done everyone at Hanburys !!!!!
