Groaning names

Many shops and other establishments have a love of what can only be called ‘make-you-groan’ titles. Here are a few that have come to our attention:

• The fish and chip shop run by a European owner: The Frying Dutchman
• A restaurant in Saudi Arabia called the Badkook Restaurant
• The Derbyshire dental surgery: Ivory Towers
• The hairdresser in Pewsey: Curl up and dye
• And a chip shop in the valleys of south Wales: A fish called Rhondda
