Not a place to miss!

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.

The whole family (2+2), are all raving about how tasty the fish and chips were from this take away in brockenhurst. We visited a few times over our stay at holland wood camp site and the quality was consistently high and very tasty!

Sometimes you just fancy fish 'n chips and the Rainbow Fish Bar didn't disappoint. The owner is a bit of a cheeky chappy and made us feel quite at home, New Forest hospitality at its best.

Beardsmore-uk, Owner at Rainbow Fish Bar, responded to this review

Sorry to hear that you feel you are getting inconsistent quality of chips, we buy in our potatoes twice a week to try to ensure we get the best available but sometimes adverse growing conditions due to poor weather patterns means that the quality is not what we would want but unfortunately is out of our control.
