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.

Got a takeaway from the chippy while on holiday recently. Really good portion sizes and not too expensive. Didn't take cash but there's an atm over the road. Friendly staff

Fantastic chip shop and you can tell why the locals rate it so highly! We visited out of season so we were served straight away. They do a lovely children's meal which comes in a 'happy meal' style box. The fish was some of the freshest and lightest that I have had. Very tasty. Happy staff too so service with... More

This really has to be one of best places for fish and chips. Not very often do I fancy eating fish and chips, but when I do, Rainbow is the only place to go. Quick service and the food is always fresh and hot.
