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. Everyone thought the food was really nice . The service was excellent and it was amazing value for money. The atmosphere was good and we liked getting drinks... More

Claire, Thank you so much for all your feedback, we do very much appreciate it. The first table of the Christmas period is often a nerve racking one so we're all very pleased that you all enjoyed your meals and had a lovely time. We hope to see you soon, and perhaps even next year again for the festive season?... More

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...

Fun evening spent in the Lescar. Love Fizz Friday! £15 per bottle and it's nice! Will return. Comedy nights always go down well.

Food here is served until 8pm but at 5pm today half the menu was already off including Sunday lunch. So I had a burger for £10.25. It came with 1 slice of tomato, 1 leaf of lettuce and weedy fries. The food is cooked OK but the problem is portions have got smaller while prices have gone the other way.... More

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback and I apologise that you were disappointed with your recent visit to The Lescar. Unfortunately the day you visited was an unusually busy day for us, we took around double what we’d usually take on a Sunday in food sales, the majority being before 5pm when you arrived. We’ve also been... More

Visited here for a roast on a Sunday on a recommendation from a friend and was not disappointed. Went for the mixed roast and the meat was cooked perfectly and so was the veg. My girlfriend went for the steak which was very reasonably priced and presented very nicely. The only downside was the service was a tad slow and... More

Called here for a drink and didn't realise that they would still be serving Sunday lunch at 6pm - bonus as we hadn't eaten. The staff are really smiley and friendly - it felt as though we were really really welcome. Food arrived and it was a good tasty plate of Sunday roast. The food arrived plated up except for... More

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.
