A FISH and chip shop has adopted a patriotic approach by renaming itself Pysk Hag Asklos, Cornish for fish and chips.
The shop in Illogan Highway was previously called Roberts Fish and Chips until proprietor Stephen Richardson decided to make the change.
He said: "When I bought the shop I kept the name but I think now is the time for a change.
"Given the recent decision to recognise the Cornish through minority status, a Cornish name seemed appropriate.
"Illogan Highway isn't the most affluent of areas and I would like to thank my customers for sticking with me in these hard economic times.
"The last few months have seen steady sales growth and I am confident that Cornish language can be used as a marketing tool to continue that trend as well as helping to promote Cornish as an everyday language."
