Northamptonshire’s The Royal Oak at Eydon have been contacted by MARN regarding their listing of foie gras on the menu.
This delicacy is produced through the force feeding of ducks and geese until their livers become diseased and inflamed.
We are pleased to announce that the restaurant’s owner has clarified the matter through the withdrawal of foie gras from the menu:
“With regard to the Foie Gras our supplier assured us that the product was produced under much more humane methods than has traditionally been used & that the welfare of the birds is paramount to the owners of the farms.
Saying that I do, personally, have some issues with the production of Foie Gras & we now changed our menu & no longer have this dish. I would like to point out that whilst the dish was on the menu it was our most popular choice!
