The New Penny Grill, Poulton Le Fylde
A passionate family run business stretching back to 1982 when Janet Jones wanted a little job, a little interest bought the New Penny Grill. The mission then, as now, was to provide the best quality food and service at a reasonable price. In 1984 Janet's son Stephen joined the business after deciding teaching was not for him, neither had any formal catering or business training, they just liked people.

In 1989 the ice cream shop next door was acquired at the time it was trading as a card, sweet, tobacconist and ice cream shop. Janet, herself, has now retired, the business is still continuing to build on Mrs Jones’s founding principles, with Stephen, Lucy, Thomas (their son) and the committed staff providing this to their customers. The New Penny craft the most delicious championship winning ice cream that you can imagine. Lovingly crafted from a years old local family recipe, it's been available to buy for over 60 years, fresh from the counter at the cafe in the market town of Poulton.

2014 marked the 25th anniversary year of the ownership of The New Penny, so winning Ice Cream Maker of the Year was a doubly sweet celebration. The New Penny were delighted that all of their hard work was rewarded when New Penny Vanilla was voted Best Artisan Ice Cream in the UK for 2014 and the Jones name now has the honour of joining an esteemed list of famed Italian ice cream makers. Thirty flavours are regularly made, and some can be made to order.

The cafe has 26 tables with seating for 92 customers. It is air conditioned and has customer toilets.

The cafe makes, every day, the majority of the food served in it from scones, egg custard, lemon meringue and fruit pies. Also made are vanilla slices, fruit cakes, lemon drizzle, flapjacks, caramel shortcake and biscuits (ginger, oat and shortbread). Everyday they produce a number of daily specials from the following :

Steak pie; chicken and leek pie; cheese and onion pie; liver, bacon and onion; Cumberland Sausages; steak and kidney pie; braised steak, braised pork, braised lamb cottage pie; steak and ale pie; chicken Thai green curry and on a Friday either a seafood special or salmon fishcakes.

On Sunday The New Penny cooks their own meats (beef, lamb and turkey) and offer a Sunday lunch consisting of:

1. a meat of your choice
2. home roast potatoes and mashed potatoes
3. fresh vegetables
4. lip smacking gravy, just like mum used to make!

The New Penny also make their own sage and onion stuffing for those having turkey, as well as mint sauce, cranberry sauce and horseradish sauce.
