We were advised by friends to visit willow cafe and gift shop when next in Poulton. We did and came away with a satisfied smile, it exceeded our expectations. The meal we had was excellent and the service could not be faulted. We anticipated paying a little more than we did and found the curiosity of the shop equally appealing. We have since recommended this shop and cafe to others without hesitation, and we will definitely be returning.

I was very disappointed to read your review. I would very much like you to visit Willow again as my guest and see if we cannot change your mind about the establishment. Our meals are fairly priced and customer service is an extremely high priority at Willow. Customers return again and again and are very complimentary about the food and ambience of the tea room.
Please let me know if you would like a free meal and we can arrange this.

During a recent visit to the UK, we discovered the Willow Cafe in Poulton-le-Fylde. It was a real find! Our first visit was one afternoon when we enjoyed their traditional afternoon tea with sandwiches, home-made scones, cream and jam, etc.

A couple of days later, we decided to have lunch there and once again were not disappointed. I enjoyed a superb chicken, brie and cranberry panini and my partner just a bowl of the delicious home-made soup and roll so she could make room for the Sticky Toffee Pudding she spotted on the menu. Never misses the desserts!

Not only do they offer free Wi-Fi (I can’t travel without it!) and children’s meals we noticed, there’s a wonderful selection of items in the gift shop. Greeting cards, speciality soaps and cosmetics, clocks and costume jewellery were just a few of the items which caught our eye.

But, of course, its crowning glory was the friendly service we received on both our visits.

If you are anywhere close, we can certainly recommend the Willow.
