Who is The Cafe Guy and why should I care!

I am Paul Rawlinson, The Cafe Guy, and I own a Scandinavian inspired cafe in Harrogate.  We used to have a restaurant called Norse that popped up here too but in Feb 2017 we did a Kickstarter campaign to move it to a new home on Swan Road.  I’m now the Director of Norse.

I live in Harrogate and have done so since 2011 when we moved here to open the business.  Before this I moved around a bit because I was a serving officer in the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers.

I am married to Katie, an NHS dietitian working in stroke and neurology, and we have one son called Seth and a another called Toby.

This blog has been up for a couple of years and I’ve always posted pretty sporadically.  As we head into the Spring of 2018 and I update this post I am intending to write more often.

I’ll be using The Cafe Guy blog to talk about independent business, marketing, collaboration, food, drinks and lots of other things too.  If you want to get in touch with me you can do so via email on info@paulrawlinson.co.uk.
