Really tasty food, great service and lovely views if you enjoy your food on the downs.
Beautiful cod. Always to a good standard and chips are really good.
Can't fault the food. However, after my Mum's order was 15mins late and she phoned, after telling the man on the phone... numerous times her order was due at 5.45 and it was 15 mins late, he blatantly wasn't listening to her, he then said oh is it 6oclock which my mum thought he meant that was the actually time, so she said yes, and was replied to with, oh it's only a minute late we can't get it spot on, and then put the phone down on her. Rude to say the least.read more
was delicious as always! 👍
The best grilled cod going! Thank you 🙏
I finally feel normal! Thank you for providing a gluten free option, being coeliac means takeaways and eating out is a... minefield and sometimes not worth the hassle! Being gluten free isn’t a choice for me. I used delivery and it arrived hot and tasty. Just the right amount of batter and the chips were Devine! THANK YOUread more
stop lying to customers when you say you have put extra salt vinger on. obviously with fish chips it's pretty... important. why you won't put but a tiny amount on to begin with is interesting to begin with. is it really that expensive ? won't come again there's another place 30 meters awayread more
Great to be back to the wolds best Fish and Chip shop/ Resturaunt Lovely service as always Thank you Janet 👏
unfortunately Hanburys has gone downhill fast. Not having their restaurant open for indoor dining when every other... Restaurant and pub in the area is open is damaging to them. The chips were substandard and half were just scribble bits. The worst part is the charge of over £20 for 2 cod and chips and a curry sauce! I can get better quality and the same order would be £15 at other chippy. I will.never be using Hanburys again and I used to eat there all the time. Sorry but your time has gone.read more
Popped over from Newton for our once a year Cod Royale treat. Surprisingly even tastier than usual this year. How do... you improve on perfect?.. By what they’ve done clearly!. Amazing food and service.read more

I recommend not charging someone £22 for 2 portions of scampi and chips, having a delivery driver that cannot work out... that number 27 comes between 25 and 29 on the house numbers, so not only was our food cold but, omg I've never seen such disgusting food in my life, the chips were black... I will be very happy to share these photos on your page. it was vile, cold and daylight robbery charging that price, it was bad enough just trying to place an order with such incompetent staff. First class food it was not, daylight robbery it was, I would never recommend this place to my worst enemy... wish I could cancel the payment, it wasn't worth half the price you charged, I may as well have thrown my £22 straight in the bin!!!!!!!!!!!read more
Excellent service, tasty food.
Arrived today just at closing time , got served gorgeous fish & chips great friendly accommodating staff 😊😎👍
Had mini fish and chips for lunch today. Mini being the correct word - smallest portion I have ever had. I shall go... Saltwater in future, where the portions are almost twice the size.read more

Perfect freshly made fish and chips. Also had the delicious battered chicken strips. So yummy had twice on our three... day stay👍👍👍👍👍read more
Brilliant gluten free fish & chips. Ordered via the APP, so I could select a collection time. They were delicious,... thank you.read more
Sadly this evenings visit is the 3rd time in a row the chips have been below par (only just warm and therefore edible).... Had I opened them there (and not down on Meadfoot Beach as it was a lovely eve) I would have returned them, which is something I have only ever done twice before (2 separate venues). Such a shame juxtapose previous claims to "only use ground nut oil and regularly filter for better flavour and taste" etc. The meal was saved by the freshly cooked scampi & chicken goujons. All 3 are the only 3 visits over the last 8 weeks all timed not long after 19:00.read more
The best fish and chips I have ever had

Great if you gave a wheat allergy, grilled cod or haddock is 5/5. Well done Hanburys 👍
Well worth the money you pay.
Used Hanburys for the first time this week. My husband is coeliac so he was desperate for a Fish Friday. Loved using... the App so quick and easy. Food was on time and hot and delicious. Great service and social distancing. Husband enjoyed every bit of it and of course all the family. Definitely be using it again. 👍🏼read more
Awesome fish and chips, delivered hot and 4 minutes early (delivery time really useful, as helped with timings for... other bits we were cooking to go with it) with a smile. Loving the curry sauce. Definitely highly recommendedread more
Delivered this lunchtime for my parents 52nd Anniversary. Food arrived and they even apologised for being a bit early!... Friendly staff, social distancing rules followed, and it was blooming scrummy 😋. My mum and dad have been in isolation throughout all this. They love Hanbury's, usually sat on the Downs, so today it was a lovely treat for them. Thanks for a fab service 🤩read more

They are the best fish and chips we have eaten in the UK ..!! The decor was quirky and authentic to the brand we really appreciated all the attention to detail in this place. It is a labour of LOVE and it shines through ..!! The staff Abi and Caitlin were professional and attentive. They are a real asset to this place. They were so helpful ..!! We LOVE the fact the fish is cooked in gluten free batter ..!! We also LOVE the unlimited chips supply when ordering fish with your meal what a NICE touch ..!! So if you want to eat the best fish and chips of your life then it’s a no brainier ...!! 100% recommended..!!! Lots of Love & Appreciation Baker-Brett 💖🌈🦄🌟xxread more
Great fish & chips and service.
The batter on the cod was so light it’s as if it was made by fairies
Hanbury’s is Babbacombe institution. whenever we are down visiting the family we always stop off. Lately we have been... having grilled fish and a jacket a pleasant change to chips n batter. You can have a glass of their own beer and a selection of locally made ice cream to finish. Janet and her crew will look after you.read more
Well we went to 3 restaurants on Babbacombe and none were serving food but we eventually found Hanburys. They weren't... open until 45 minutes after we arrived but because it was raining outside the manager let us in and gave Lylyka a colouring book so she was entertained and we were out of the rain! Lovely people! The food was incredible. Lewis had a trio of fish, Lylyka chose sausage, jacket potato and beans and I ordered what is described as 2 local sausages with mash and onion gravy! 2 sausages the size of 2 arms arrived!!!!!! Regretted buying Lylyka her first proper coke as a treat rather than sugar free because my God did she go hyper lol. She chose unicorn ice cream for pud. I had Kenyan coffee ice cream and captain Morgan's rum and raisin ice cream. Lewis had the same as me but added a scoop of honeycomb ice cream too! Amazing staff too!!! P.s the amaretto coffee was to die for!read more

Thank you 😊read more

Top calamari en king prawns!
We stumbled across Hamburys on our recent visit to Babbacombe from Cornwall. The staff were fantastic and great with... our girls, they had activity packs and crayons as soon as we arrived, after we finished our amazing food Janet showed the girls the church door table with shells under the glass. Janet also took the time to tell us about certain items in the restaurant, about its history and gave us postcards with the beautiful paintings by Liz Jones which will be framed and put on my front room wall. We can’t wait to return again & hopefully bring other family members to see the treasures in the restaurant and eat the best fish & chips we ever had! Thank you!read more

So tried you guys tonight for the first time despite living in Torquay for ages! Lol It was fairly busy &... unfortunately our order ticket was lost 🙁 however staff were genuinely apologetic & offered either full refund with food wich would be ready in 5 mins or just a refund. We had waited quietly for a while thinking it was just busy so were pretty hungry so of course we opted to get the refund & the food wich was a very kind gesture from the staff/manager who then topped that by upping our original order of medium cod & haddock to both large pieces of fish! Again a great apology for misplacing our order. And of course it was very yummy! Thank you for sorting it out so well & for the lovely food. We will be back & maybe bring a highlighter for our ticket lol only kidding I know it won't happen again. 😀 #thesethingshappenread more

After completing the recent charity marathon from Exeter to Torquay, it was great to be rewarded with a lovely gesture... of free fish and chips provided by this great local business, supporting the event by offering this to all runners.
