We regularly drive 15 miles for fish and chips at the Rainbow Fish Bar. The fish is freshly cooked and at a cost of £4 for seniors it great value! The shop is always clean and the staff are polite and well presented!

Always nicely cooked, friendly staff & sensibly priced with a good variety on offer. Do check opening hours before setting off, as they are currently operating winter hours. Highly recommended.

Only a small shop but big on taste. They serve pensioner specials at lunchtime. Open from 5pm until 8pm. So not a long opening time. At busy times ques stretch outside the door

There is not much you can say about a fish and chip takeaway other than when the fish is cooked fresh to order and served with good quality locally produced potato chips it has to be good, and here it is.

Lovely fish and chips time after time. Good selection of fish as well as the usual alternative options. Gets very busy, but you can ring and order in advance. Friendly staff and good value too.

Was in Freshwater at Colwell Bay on holiday. Came here for fish and chips and it was bang on. Good price and quick service. Give it a whirl if you are wanting a chippy!
