Went for a Sunday roast, opted for the mix of pork and beef. One thin slice of pork and one badly cut slice of dry beef. Very disappointing for £11.50, fair to say I won't be rushing back. If anyone had bothered to come and ask if my food was ok I would have told them but nobody did.

Venison very over cooked. Mash was blended. Chicken schnitzel was over cooked and hard to eat. Expensive dishes should have more skill and attention put into them

We call in here quite often because of the range of real ale on offer. It's always got a good atmosphere. Food menu always looks interesting, but we haven't sampled it.

We were the first group to have the Christmas menu this year and the staff said they would welcome feedback. The choice was good and between us we had all the options.

Claire, Thank you so much for all your feedback, we do very much appreciate it.

Popped in after a recommendation from a friend. Great atmosphere and selection of drinks. We were also able to try out some ales before purchasing. This pub has a warm comfortable glow about it. Will definitely visit again when in the area.

Couldn't complain about anything. Great service, beer, setting, environment, price and food. The roast dinner arrived quickly, was hot the trimmings were all cooked brilliantly and the meat was great. Also appreciated the high quality condiments available. The Yorkshire pudding was the star of the show!

We are regular visitors to this pub in Sheffield and its great no complaints at all. The staff are excellent and very friendly. You will need to book a table to avoid disappointment but if you linger around you can usually get one but not guaranteed. The food is excellent lots of share food and great main meals. The staff...

Description
A charmingly vintage Sheffield pub. A short stroll from the boisterous bustle of Sheffield's Ecclesall Road, you'll find The Lescar: a pub with retro style and a reassuringly old-fashioned appreciation for what makes a great local. Think lovingly poured cask ales (from our local Abbeydale Brewery), fresh, honest food and regular live entertainment. Sit back, soak up the laid back banter from a stand-up act or enjoy some live music. It'll be closing time before you know it.
