We are happy to announce that after the release of our undercover investigation last week into rabbit farms, The Terrace restaurant at the National Theatre in London, has removed the rabbit dish from their menu.
The Terrace at the National Theatre in London was linked to the farms and slaughterhouses investigated. When the shocking images were brought to their attention, they announced that they had not only removed the rabbit dish from their menu, but would also never be reinstating it. Their relationship with their supplier C&D Wines, has been suspended pending further investigation.

For over a period of 2 years, Animal Equality investigators infiltrated the Spanish rabbit meat industry, and a total of 72 farms, and 4 slaughterhouses were investigated, revealing the cruelty these animals endure at farms.
Animal Equality has already taken legal action against the farms and abattoirs investigated, and we are working to ensure that these abuses do not go unpunished.

NATIONAL THEATRE STATEMENT:
‘We were deeply disturbed to learn of the allegations made about practices on certain Spanish rabbit farms, which were brought to our attention last Friday. One of our UK-based suppliers has been linked through a chain of wholesalers to some of these farms and as such we immediately removed the rabbit dish from our menu and will not be reinstating it. We have also suspended our relationship with the supplier in question pending further investigation.’
