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

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.

Always come here when we visit the Island on holiday. Superb fish and fluffy ( no little overcooked bottom of the frier ) chips which we eat at Colwell Bay on the way back to the Yarmouth ferry. Very efficient and friendly staff. Last night one of the staff ran up the road with our forgotten sauce sachets! What service!... More
