The pub and staff seem really nice but I was not impressed by the food. Dry pork,barely cooked roast potatoes and a small portion of vegetables... Shame I really was looking forward to it.More

Brilliant place to just sit around and while away your Saturday afternoon with a book and a cider. Well worth a visit and the comedy and jazz nights are stuff of legends!!! Come in and you won't leave disappointed

Very good range of beers, nice beer garden at the back and a large room for functions that can be booked. Friendly place and welcomes dogs. Food is good but a little more expense than some. Worth a visit.

The food was nice and the waitress was really good but we were really disappointed by the lack of appropriate baby changing facilities, which consist of a changing mat on the floor of the disabled toilet. It was clear the floor hadn't been properly cleaned...More

Cosy and relaxing pub. A good place to socialise with family and friends. No nonsense Sunday lunch, the turkey was tender and a good sized portion. Not the best Sunday lunch ever but great for a chilled Sunday afternoon with a glass of wine. Nice...More

Elliott T
Hi, Elliott. What would you like to know about this restaurant? A group of about 15-20 of us are coming to a comedy night on a Thursday. Was wondering if people generally turn up and pay on the door or prebook tickets. ideally I'd like to just turn up to save the hassle etc.

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.
