We have tried various options for packaging and still find bags the best, the only plus side was the oil did stay in the bag and not on your clothes!! we will try... More

Lunchtime, sitting on a hill above Brockenhurst, watching the ponies and cows on the lawn (open grass plain) eating tasty haddock and chips. Takes some beating.

Excellent fish and chips, large portions and well priced. Excellent friendly service, hard to fault on anything. There is parking outside, not a lot but enough to permit a chip and run raid. As Arnie says 'I will return'.

We make sure we visit here every time we are in England and still consider this to be the best fish and chips anywhere in the Forest and area. Always a friendly welcome.

I had a lovely Cod & Chips takeaway meal,whilst visiting Brockenhurst,When I was working in Brockenhurst many years ago,this use to be my favorite tasty takeaway,and it still the same. Absolutely Fantastic.I believe the same as previous advisors that this is THE BEST FISH & CHIP SHOP IN THE NEW FOREST.

Every time we are in the New Forest we visit the Rainbow, It's possibly the best in Southern England.

When I said I didn't like batter, the assistant immediately offered to do me a portion of fish without. Great fish and chips, but beware the portions are large.
