Gary Stafford and his team are Sligo food heroes, a driven and dedicated crew who give it 100%.
A simple but powerful demand drives the team in Lyons Café. Gary Stafford’s cooking is so beloved by their hordes of regular customers, that they have to deliver perfection, every time, every dish, every day. Anything less, Mr Stafford knows, just wouldn’t be good enough to keep the customers satisfied. And so, every day, they make everything anew, and they make everything delicious – the slow-braised pork belly; the Lebanese chicken sandwich on Bakeshop bread; the Lissadell cockles and king prawn linguine; the black cherry bakewell tart. Mr Stafford is a perfectionist, and his food unveils the delights of the larder of County Sligo, enjoyed in one of the most charming rooms in the North West.
