Popped in here for dinner one night on our holiday. Food was very quick and tasty. The man who served us was very friendly and the place had a nice atmosphere.

We had fish and chips which were beautiful ,delicious fresh and hearty portions given (could be shared easily). They cost £6 and were worth it!

I am not a fan of batter but occasionally get the craving for good old fish and chips. This had a really thin flat crispy batter that really just provided a casing for the lovely fish inside. Friendly service and the place looked really clean.

Get some really tasty fish, and you don't forget the mushy pea fritters. Myself and Kat decided to get one cod and one haddock and the haddock was the superior of the two. It takes a while as they are always busy, but this is a good thing.

While camping in the forest and sick of beams we decided to go for the cheaper option of fish and chips. However I was totally shocked and appalled when a small bag was handed to me containing all my food mashed up and stinking of old fat. I was even more shocked that after seeing a large potion of chips... More

While the fish and chips were good, as the chips are cooked in the same oil as the fish and other non-vegetarian products, as were the onion rings, it meant that our vegetarian daughter was not able to have any food from this establishment. Ended up having to find an alternative takeaway using the sat-nav so that our daughter could... More

My general experience of fish and chips in the South of England is dismal. The Rainbow was a revelation: freshly cooked, crisp batter, thick and succulent cod. Decent chips and cheerful staff. Best food in Brockenhurst now that the Thatched Cottage Hotel Restaurant has (sadly) begun to rest on its laurels.
