What we do

Established in 2012, Lancar Leisure is an exciting new venture into pubs and bars across the Yorkshire region. With an aim to create jobs and provide excellent service in key locations, Lancar acquired our first outlet in Sheffield, the Fox and Duck in Broomhill. Following a successful refit and realignment, this site is now exceeding initial projection and as such we are actively searching for the opportunity to acquire further sites.

We also offer extensive consultancy services to the hospitality sector. Contact us for more information.

Fox and Duck, Broomhill

Acquired on a lease with Enterprise Inns, the Fox and Duck is a community ale house in a heavily populated secondary high street student location. Operating on 100% wet turnover the site operates a successful "bring your own food' policy. Upon acquiring the site Lancar committed to a full refit and upgrade of facilities. With excellent relationships in place with local breweries Abbeydale and Bradfield, the site is going from strength to strength and is exceeding targets in year 3.

Key Points

The Fox and Duck has an excellent relationship with two regional brewers, Abbeydale Brewery and Bradfield Brewery, selling over one thousand pints of local ale every week.

Now in it's second year of operation, the Fox is tracking a year on year growth in sales in excess of 10%, far exceeding current industry decline.

To date the site has operated promotions and events with several major UK brands, including Bacardi Brown Forman, Diageo, Molson Coors, Heineken and more. We intend to capitalise on these relationships going forwards.
