By Staff Reporter

Catering company The Fatted Calf has won a major contract for the tea room at Glenarm Castle.

The Belfast-based firm, which is run by chefs Justin Donaldson and Jason Bowen, will be operating the tea room at the tourist destination from St Patrick's Day on March 17 until October 16.

Glenarm Castle's walled garden attracts around 70,000 visitors every year.

Its events and marketing manager Nigel Campbell said: "I am confident that teaming up with The Fatted Calf will add to the fantastic experience we currently offer and attract more visitors to Glenarm Castle and our walled garden, which is one of the oldest in Ireland."

Justin Donaldson said the firm planned to use the estate's award-winning beef and salmon, as well as organic fruit and vegetables from the castle's walled garden."
