Me and my husband were amazed of the quality of the coffee and food at the Tinderbox! It was our first time there. We had just returned from holidays in Oxford and this cafe definitely was a refreshing surprise ! It could serve the most fine customers as the decoration is special and different than all the other cafés of the area. The staff were very friendly . Very reasonable prices . Worth to visit

The rest of the Cafes in Poulton have serious competition. The new owners, have completely transformed the interior most of the fancy goods have been removed, it is more like a cafe.

There are a complete set of new old tables with assorted coloured chairs.

What has,nt changed is the quality of the food and it is still very inexpensive, coffee with hot milk £1.60p two slices of toast with generous
portions of butter spread on thank god none of those catering packs priced at £1.00 for two. a nice fruit bun(teacake) again lots of butter £1.00.

The staff are friendly and have created a nice relaxed atmosphere.

The Willow is just the perfect place to enjoy tea and a bite to eat. It has a lovely friendly and relaxed atmosphere. I was visiting Blackpool to see my niece and on her recommendation we decided to take the short journey by train to Poulton-Le -Fylde. The old railway station and the town have lots of character. But most special of all was our delightful easy lunch at The Willow, situated just a couple of minutes from the railway station. You will find a pleasant array of gifts for sale too. It's a place not to be missed. Susan

The Willows is so convieniently situated lee than a 100 yards from the entry to Poulton Railway Station.

Wednesday seems to be the most popular day, for the princely sum of £2.00p you get a cup of coffee/tea and a toasted tea cake with an ample amount of butter soaked into the tea cake.

There are a wide range of snacks. the fancy goods section has a wide range of reasonably priced items and also a very extensive selection of cards for all occasions ie birthday xmas births deaths etc.

Its open 6 days a week and if you go for a T/T and drink its only a few pennies more.

Is it a tea room or is it a shop? The gift shop part has some quite nice things but then sort of fades out as you walk through to the back of the shop where the tea room is and that is the part which would benefit from a bit of reorganisation. The problem is that there is nothing to look out at apart from looking at the the back of the shop, maybe it would be more user friendly if the cafe part was at the front overlooking the pavement and the shop was at the back. It just doesn't encourage me to linger over a coffee and a cake. I just wanted to eat and go asap. The food was ok, sandwiches, paninis etc but the sweets were in a glass case at the back of the cafe and looked very sorry for themselves. Certainly not fresh enough to tempt me. The staff are very nice and the prices reasonable. Sorry but I wouldn't rush back
