One Sunday morning in Harrogate

Although a little lie in at the weekends has become a norm since the “kids” flew the nest I always struggle if the sun is streaming in from behind the blinds. So we decided to get up and about with The Lad for a gentle stroll and perhaps some breakfast…..would it be possible to even sit outside?
We headed off to Harrogate and arrived around 9.15 am, parking was easy but D was obviously feeling generous as she fed the meter even though it is free parking on Sundays. However on such a beautiful day such things just us make smile. We wandered around the stray taking pictures of the trees which were in the early but stunning stages of autumnal glory.

After 45 mins we ended up at one of our favourite deli’s, Weetons and took a table outside. We ordered a mix of breakfast and Earl Grey tea (try it) and two full English breakfasts, at £9.50 each our expectations were high, no need to worry though as it was cooked to perfection and it tasted as good as it looked.

We decided to invite the kids for a late lunch. Weeton’s has a fabulous delicatessen, cheese counter and bakery not forgetting to mention the choice of wines and chocolates on offer. Decision made, starter of olives with garlic and chilli, sweet garlic and freshly baked bread then pasta and meatballs for main followed by bannoffee pie and cream…£25 to feed six people..stuffed to the brim. What a lovely day.
