Similarly, the deeply fried goujons of potato (to good to be called mere chips) also perfect in texture, taste and... read more

Searching for truly delicious fish and chips with lots of salt and vinegar then Rainbow is the place to be. Fish is freshly cooked by the delightful John, Lisa and Rob are friendly and will bend over backwards to make this a wonderful experience. I use Rainbow on a regular basis and have enjoyed every single meal. Highly recommended. Xxxxxx

Having read the reviews on TA I ordered haddock and small chips and set off to the fish bar. Friendly staff (one guy searched round for some 'gribbles' for me (that's off cuts of batter if you get my drift)). Home to unwrap and I found some chips (?a small portion?? phew) that were crisp outside and soft in the... More

First time we have been to here and selected it based on the reviews and we weren't steered wrong. Fish is cooked really well and tasty, not greasy at all. The chips are plentiful and again really well cooked. All in all great quality at a good price.

Excellent Fish and Chip shop very quick service, even when busy, and good value although VERY large chip portions couldn't eat all of the medium portion so was wasted, however very tasty food!
