Harrow Road Cafe
Several young Englishman started a cafe on Rugby's Harrow Road in 1882. According to the village newspaper, "a capital Welsh Rarebit" could be had. Visitors and lodgers today can still enjoy Welsh Rarebit, one of many choices on a daily lunch menu which features Cumberland Plateau home cooking and British Isles specialties. Shepherd's Pie, Fish & Chips and Bangers & Mash compete for your attention with daily specials such as meatloaf, grilled chicken and deep-fried catfish. Other fare includes homemade soups and desserts, sandwiches and salads, and our much loved Harrow Road Spoon Rolls. Delicious full breakfasts are available daily; dinner by lamplight is served on Friday and Saturday evenings.
Today's Harrow Road Cafe was built in 1985 to conform to Rugby's historic architecture. Each wood beamed dining room has fireplaces for winter's chill and plenty of working windows to let in the Plateau breezes in warmer seasons. The cafe seats 80 and is a favorite spot for special group meals. The four-course meals served during special holidays such as Valentine weekend, Christmas At Rugby and New Year's Eve have become regional traditions.
