Will Larter left this review about The Lescar

I've been back several times to the Lescar since my review below, and although local beers are still few and far between, there is a noticeably more adventurous beer policy (see photos of hand pumps on latest visit). The pub appears to be very popular with students and ex-students and the beers are always in good condition. Definitely better for beer than the nearby Banner Cross and Porter Cottage, and infinitely more comfortable than the Beer House. Best alternative locally would be the Ecclesall Ale Club.

Will Larter left this review about Lescar Hotel

Definitely improved since my last visit, several years ago - in fact it must have been more than seven, because it was full of cigarette smoke at the time. There's now quite a few beers arrayed on half a dozen hand pumps, with an unusual selection from London (Sambrooks, Trumans) and Cornwall (Sharps), plus Bass and Black Sheep. Service was friendly, though it was a surprise that my 25-year-old daughter was asked for proof of age, especially as she was only drinking Pepsi! It was quite pleasant here, but it would be nice to see some local beers on offer.
