Went along for a Friday night take-away. There was a queue, but the service was good and we didn't wait too long. It was worth it though - the portion sizes are generous, and the food is very good. Fish had crisp batter and good texture, and the chips were chunky with a nice flavour, and not greasy.

Nice fish and chips, not bad price. The only thing I would say is log ques for a Saturday night and they did not have the supply of fish left at 5.30pm. don't see to be able to cope with busy period. Once paid had to wait outside for 20min waiting for order. Not very good customer service took us... More

I have had fish and chips from the Rainbow on many occasions, consistently very good and a value for money portion.

Good size portions, not greasy, didn't have to wait long even though it was on a Saturday early evening time.

Recommended by the campsite we were staying at. You order, pay and then wait whilst it's cooked to order. There was a queue and a bit of a wait, but that's usual anywhere on a Friday evening. Lovely chips and the fish was very fresh.

Omg these chips are so divine. Portions are very generous. If you want medium chips choose small etc. Cone, small, medium or large portions available. Kids meals available. Good selection of other foods e.g.: sausages, pineapple fritters, pies etc.
