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 took place in Queen Street, Cardiff on 3rd June. We asked the Welsh public to share their preference for either ‘salt & vinegar crickets’ (which were the favourites at the London Pestaurant) or ‘Mexican spiced mealworms’ - it seems the salt & vinegar crickets out shone the mealworms yet again. Our Cardiff Pestaurant also had an element of haute cuisine with the help of Andy Holcroft, founder and head chef at Grub Kitchen. He leant his expertise with a ‘specials menu’ of cricket chocolate cookies and cricket canapes. These were a roaring success with every last canape and crumb of chocolate cricket cookie consumed in the Welsh capital.

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 bringing pestaurant to even more UK locations throughout 2015.

Pestaurant will be visiting:

  • Sunday 26th July 2015 - Shooting Star Charity Day, Tongham, Surrey 12 - 4pm
  • Saturday 12th September 2015 - Edinburgh Viking Festival, Edinburgh

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.
