As regular visitors to The Canal Cafe we were disappointed at the lack of attention to detail from waiting staff. As for the guy in the suit flapping around the place looking grumpy I'm not surprised staff were so distant and disorganized if he was their leader. We ordered coffees on arrival, 2 of us had to ask twice for... More

I went to visit Laura yesterday for a full body massage. I left feeling stress free and so invigorated. She is a fantastic masseuse- a master at her craft! I would highly recommend going to visit her as you will leave the Cliff at Lyons feeling a million dollars.Will certainly be returning very soon as this was without a doubt... More

I had a full body massage with Laura and what a fantastic therapist she is. It was a truly luxurious experience starting with a back exfoliation and ending with a head massage. She was even able to diagnose shoulder pain which physiotherapists that I have seen were not able to. I have had a lot of massages over the years... More

We recently had our wedding here at the Cliff at Lyons and apart from the stunning scenery, which I should emphasise more, the staff were the best. I would especially like to give a mention to Gerard the Manager on duty from 10am to 10pm while we were there. Gerard was a calming and accommodating force during the weekend festivities... More

Beautiful location, very friendly staff & great food, and only 15 minutes from Red Cow junction. Superb location for weddings/functions etc. Also ideal for a gentle walk or cycle as it's located alongside the Grand Canal & terrain is generally flat. Highly Recommended.

Thank Billy M
Philip R, General Manager at Cliff at Lyons, responded to this review

Many thanks Billy M - The walk along the Grand Canal is even better since the council upgraded the towpath and is attracting more and more ramblers and cyclists to Cliff at Lyons as a stop off experience. Glad you had a pleasant visit and thank you for recommending Cliff at Lons. More
