Ever wondered what eating a giant locust tastes like? What about a Mexican-spiced meal worm, or a flying termite?

Head to Hawley Fayre on Saturday (July 8) and you can find out courtesy of a creepy crawly pop-up restaurant, dubbed The Pestaurant.

Rentokil, which has its head office on the Riverbank Meadows Business Park in Blackwater, will be bringing its wares to Hawley Green with a free mini-bug buffet.

Hardy visitors will be able to try exotic treats including buffalo worms, locusts, BBQ bamboo worms, flying termites and even Frankenstein Fudge if they dare.

Entomophagy (the official word for insect-eating) has been growing in popularity in the UK thanks to television shows like Im a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here.

The first Rentokil Pestaurant was held in London in 2013, and the UKs first insect-based restaurant Grub Kitchen opened in West Wales last summer.

Get Surrey content editor James Watkins ate at the Pestaurant in March 2015 – here’s what he had to say about it .

Hawley Fayre takes place on Saturday on Hawley Green , opening at midday and running until 4pm.

Visitors can also browse the many stalls, watch the activities in the central arena, grab a burger or ice cream, or just sit with a glass of something cold from the beer tent.
