REVIEW | Harrogate Tribe’s Blogger Breakfast at The West Park Hotel
I was delighted to be involved in a Harrogate Tribe event last week. The Harrogate Tribe’s Blogger Breakfast event was held in the scrumptious surroundings of the West Park Hotel. Timed perfectly for just after school drop off, the promise of meeting like-minded bloggers whilst indulging in some lovely grub sounded like a perfect Friday morning.
I duly starved myself all morning. Drooled over the kids’ scrambled eggs and even stared longingly at Hubby’s home-made ginger and greens juice. Then once the school run was finished, I dashed into town, threw my change into the parking machine and waltzed into the hotel, trying to disguise my rumbling tummy.
The Blogger Breakfast was hosted in a private conference room towards the back of The West Park Hotel.
I was warmly greeted by Victoria – The Harrogate Girl – and Chelsea, the two lovely ladies behind Harrogate Tribe and then I was let loose at the pastries. I had three. In case you’re wondering. A plain croissant. A custard-filled croissant and then I finished off with some kind of pain au chocolat.
Stomach temporarily satisfied, I then met several fellow bloggers. The variety of bloggers in the room was impressive. From lifestyle bloggers, parent bloggers and skincare bloggers to professional bloggers and those tackling the tricky subject of mental health, the room was packed full of very talented and passionate writers. I tackled my steadily rising imposter syndrome by ordering breakfast.
The menu was impressive. Many of those around me ordered the avocado and poached eggs, or the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.
I ordered a sausage sandwich. It was delicious and very posh. Served on a toasted ciabatta with delicate peak shoots, I couldn’t actually eat it all. No wonder, given the number of pastries I’d shovelled down my neck.
Harrogate Tribe’s Blogger Breakfast was a super event to be involved in. I met some fabulous fellow bloggers in my local community and felt privileged to be invited along. We were also invited just along the road to take advantage of a free dinner for two from Cook – frozen, home-made dinners just like you’d make at home.
Thank you to The Harrogate Tribe for organising and for having me along. Thank you also to The West Park Hotel for the food and the fabulous service.

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.
“THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!” my friend Kat yelled to me over the sound of a gently bubbling still with a massive gin grin on her face. For me, it probably doesn’t quite trump my wedding day or the birth of my babies, but it’s not far off! We became master mixologists, creating our own gin recipes before distilling ‘Madam Geneva’ in our own miniature stills.
It’s a fun filled day out for the whole family. There are stacks of outdoor play areas, which the kids cannot get bored of, but also some really good indoor/sheltered activities that means even on your typical autumnal Yorkshire day you can have a really good day out.
Hidden in the heart of the East Village, part of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and just a stones throw from Stratford station, are a handful of restaurants and bars. And right in the middle is Darkhorse bar and restaurant. It’s described on their website as a ‘modern European restaurant with Italian and Spanish influenced food wrapped in a British attitude’.
