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 love Junkyard Golf Club in Manchester. I may be a grown up but I felt like I could be a big kid in there, but with a cocktail in my hand at all times. It’s really whacky and weird, and we laughed our way around 2 out of 3 golf courses.
What I like best about Odyssey Greek restaurant is that it genuinely feels like you’re holiday! No mean feat considering the restaurant is actually located in Chesterfield town centre. My husband and I are huge fans of Greece. Between us we’ve ticked off most of the Greek islands and have shared many happy memories there so it’s wonderful to have somewhere that feels like being on holiday on our doorstep. A perfect venue for date night!
For its size, Chesterfield is surprisingly well served by independent cafés and eateries, but Bottle and Thyme is definitely one of the best. With its rustic, shabby chic decor, you are immediately made welcome by the friendly, well-trained staff. Most importantly, in my book, is that they know how to make a great coffee. Proper baristas mean this is the place for some of the best coffee in Chesterfield. There’s far too tempting a selection of cakes and brownies.
