Pestaurant

To celebrate our heritage and over 85 years in pest control, Rentokil unveiled the world’s first pop-up ‘Pestaurant’ on Thursday 15 August 2013, at One New Change in London, serving Londoners with Sweet Chilli Pigeon burgers, along with a range of sweet and savoury edible insects. Later that month we supported the LATES evening at the Science Museum with a ‘mini-bug buffet’ and in October we took the Rentokil Pestaurant to Edinburgh’s historic Grassmarket. 

Our 2015 UK 'Global Pestaurant Day' event will take place in Queen Street, Cardiff on 3rd June. We are asking the Welsh public to share their preference for either ‘salt & vinegar crickets’ (which were the favourites at the London Pestaurant) or ‘Mexican spiced mealworms’. Our Cardiff Pestaurant will also have an element of haute cuisine with the help of Andy Holcroft, founder and head chef at Grub Kitchen. He will be lending his expertise with a ‘specials menu’ of cricket chocolate chip cookies and bug blinis.

The 2014 Global Pestaurant Day was a great success in Writer's Square. Our Belfast visitors consumed three quarters of a kilo of edible insects, from cheddar cheese mealworms and curry crickets to plain roasted locusts, along with 880 sweet chilli pigeon burger tasters. During the autumn we took pestaurant on tour to schools across the UK, in support of our chosen charity Malaria No More UK and their 'Miles for Malaria' fundraising campaign. 

As a National company, with local support, we are taking our award winning Pestaurant on tour once again, to a number of towns and cities throughout the UK during 2015.

Upcoming Pestaurant Events

Following numerous appearances across the UK in 2014, we are now ready to bring pestaurant to even more UK locations throughout 2015.


Pestaurant will be visiting:

  • Wednesday 3rd June 2015 - Global Pestaurant Day, Queen Street, Cardiff City Centre 11am - 3pm
  • Sunday 14th June 2015 - Didsbury Open Gardens, Didsbury, Manchester 11.30am - 5.30pm
  • Sunday 26th July 2015 - Shooting Star Charity Day, Tongham, Surrey 12 - 4pm


At a Rentokil Pestaurant the food is FREE and a number of Rentokil experts are on hand to discuss the edible insects being served, answer any pest related questions you may have and pass on their 'top tips' for avoiding pest problems at work and at home.

We will also be taking Pestaurant back into schools again, following on from the popularity of our 2014 school tour and in 2015 it will be joined by our Initial Hygiene Angels - bringing even more interactive, educational fun into UK schools.
