Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

The usual chip shop favourites are neatly arrayed in sparkling stainless steel counters, but Rapido's vibrant blue and orange frontage promises – and delivers – more than your average chippy. The wide-ranging menu truly does offer something for everyone, with a significant number of vegetarian options (and vegetable oil is used for all deep-frying). Fish suppers are a given, but healthier choices include baked potatoes, salads and a variety of wraps. Pastas and pizzas are also available, with the light, crispy bases home-made on the premises. The more adventurous will be tempted by specialist gourmet pizzas with toppings such as mussels, prawns and Tabasco. If you've still got room, try the well-stocked dessert counter's wickedly gooey caramel apple pie and chocolate fudge cake.

  • Delivery: £2 through Just-Eat; £1.50 when calling direct
  • Provides: Vegetarian options (at least ¼ main courses)
