You may have noticed that two of Hastings Hotels’ establishments were lucky enough to have been chosen as the locations for two of the beautifully engraved Game of Thrones inspired doors.

As you’ll know if you’ve checked out our recent feature: The 10 Locations Of The New Game Of Thrones Doors In Northern Ireland, the doors are the central element of Tourism Northern Ireland and Tourism Ireland’s Game of Thrones campaign.

To further celebrate the success of Game of Thrones, Hastings Hotel’s top chefs have put their heads together and created a dish that will have everyone in Northern Ireland salivating!

Managing Director of Hastings Hotels, Howard Hastings, commented: “The Percy French and Ballygally Castle are becoming increasingly popular with fans from the series who want to see the doors and visit the film locations.

“The doors look fabulous and have been carved from the wood of two fallen 200 year old birches that once stood at the Dark Hedges, another famous Game of Thrones landmark that represents Kingsroad in the series.

“But we didn’t want to stop there and now our team of talented chefs have created a unique Westeros Tomahawk Steak dish which is exclusively available at the Percy French and Ballygally Castle.

“These 20oz salt aged steaks have been specially prepared for us by local butchers, Carnbrooke Meats from Dromore and come served on a wooden platter, complete with a ‘Valyrian steel’ inspired knife.”

Howard continued: “The incredible steak is served with our special Causeway chips, Portobello mushrooms, beef tomatoes, rocket garnish and a choice of sauce. A Tomahawk makes an ideal sharing steak for a special occasion or romantic meal, as it can easily feed two and at £60 for two people, it is a very hearty and unique dinner choice!”
