We rushed in as they were about to close & they very kindly sold us the last piece of fish a sausage & loads of chips, some of which I think they were about to eat themselves. We ate it on the beach at Colwell bay & it was delicious. Lovely friendly people.

Searching for truly delicious fish and chips with lots of salt and vinegar then Rainbow is the place to be.

I use Rainbow on a regular basis and have enjoyed every single meal. Highly recommended. Xxxxxx

Friendly staff (one guy searched round for some 'gribbles' for me (that's off cuts of batter if you get my drift)).
