You cannot fault this place. The fish etc is cooked to order and well worth waiting for - the queues in the holiday season can mean a bit of a wait. Takeaway Prices are comparable with other shops. The restaurant is quite a bit more but the portions are VERY large and my family tend to waste a lot

We usually have fish and chips or just chips from here quite regularly but this week we bought a regular portion of... chips for £3.25 and I know prices have gone up and I understand this but I still think that as a customer you expect good value and it would be a complete exaggeration for me to say there were only six chips in the box but it was a very small mean portion. We will probably go to Drakes around the corner next time.read more

It was so lovely to find somewhere that did gluten free fish, but we found out, just by chance this weekend, that they... stopped gluten free at the end of summer 2022. I wondered why my 11 year old daughter with Coeliac Disease has been so poorly over the past 6 months and had to have her medication upped. Now I know...... she's been glutened countless times!read more

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

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

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.

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

Just wanted to express our LOVE & APPRECIATION for this FANTASTIC Fish & Chip restaurant.

The fish and chips... were SIMPLY DEVINE DARLING..!!

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 💖🌈🦄🌟xx

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.

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

Popped into Hanbury’s last night on recommendation, whilst on holiday in Devon.
What can I say, amazing food,... atmosphere and staff. Dining with a GF husband and fussy child always tricky but there was something for everyone! Tried their craft beer too, amazing, even bought 6 home 😜 special shout out to Janet, what a star, who clearly loves her job and went above and beyond to provide everyone with an amazing dining experience. Thank you 😊read more

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
