    At one time Rugby was renowned as the town in England with the most pubs within the square mile of the town centre. Many of the traditional pubs have now gone or have been revamped as corporate drinking places, however you can still find some pubs upholding the tradition of being a meeting place for locals to drink and chat and (now) smoke outside.
