Really really nice fish and chips. Easy to park outside. Friendly service at the counter. Not much more to say.

We stayed in Brockenhurst in the first week of September. One night we visited the Rainbow Fish Bar and ordered four lots of cod and chips and a sausage and chips for the family. We all agreed that they were the best we'd had in a while. Friendly staff, quick service and piping hot tasty fish n chips. Definitely recommended!!!

My yearly visit to a fish and chip shop...the Rainbow in Brockenhurst is the stop of choice. Cold and wet motorcycle ride to the new forest... The excellent chips from the Rainbow really hit the spot. Reasonable prices too. See you next year!

The fish from Rainbow fish bar is to die for. They do children's portions too. The food was piping hot and stayed hot while we found somewhere to park up and watch the horses.

We have visited Brockenhurst for our summer holidays four years in a row, and we always look forward to the fish and chips. In our opinion they are definitely the best fish and chip shop we have been too anywhere! The service is well organised, always putting the customer first. Even though the queue could be out the door, you... More

This compares to the best fish and chip takeaways I have had. The fish wasn't greasy, the chips were good, and they serve gravy even though it is not on the menu. The staff were friendly.

Having arrived in a very wet Brockenhurst we just fancied some warm and comforting food, so sat in the window of the Rainbow, watched the rain come down and ate some very pleasant fish and chips! Probably not the best fish and chips I've ever had, but definitely on the better side!

When we fancy a takeaway, We always travel 20 minutes to this fish bar as its definitely the best we have eaten from for a very long time. The staff are very friendly and the food is very nice with good sized portions! Fully recommended!

Visited while staying at the nearby campsite and as regular fish and chip eaters I have to say both myself, my husband and our friends were very impressed! Good portion sizes, tasty chips and fish. Wish we lived closer to visit all the time!
