But just months after launching the site was listed as being up for sale with an asking price of £375, 000.

The premises is being marketed as being situated in a 'prime location' and based near 'many national, regional and local traders nearby' and there is also an apartment above the restaurant.

Chad Beach, general manager, said: "The building is up for sale. But Lucky Fox will be staying. We have a long lease so no change will be happening.

"We're very happy to continue to grow here, and the customers we are having have been amazing.

"We have a new menu coming out soon that includes man 'n' cheese."

The Ecclesall Road eaterie was opened after building on the success of their other restaurant in Division Street.

The restaurant has garnered good reviews on TripAdvisor and generated more than 7000 followers on Instagram.
