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.
Before I move onto the impeccable five-course tasting menu, it’s only fair to mention that Grays Court is the only hotel in York with private access to the city’s mediaeval city walls and the view of the Minster from some of the hotel’s well-appointed rooms is incredible. There’re only 12 rooms making this little piece of 12th century Jacobean real-estate more like a rather large and rather plush family home than a hotel.
Food trucks offering an epic selection of food flavours from across the world hosted under the iconic railway arches of Glasgow Central station. This place ticks all my boxes – kid-friendly, dogs welcome, great food selection, beer to keep the hubby happy (including a microbrewery within), play area to burn off some toddler energy – but not compromising on style, decent wine if required or cool location.
Thyme Café is the perfect balance between eating in a nice establishment, without feeling awkward for taking small children. Great food, where the standard does not drop for the kid’s menu.
Loads of tasty choices on the menu, enough to keep you wanting to go back several times over!!
