Reviewed March 3, 2013

Went to Spalding for the weekend and stopped off here for a lunchtime bevvy - bar maid was great very pleasant and service was prompt - customers were obviously local in the majority and this made for a great atmosphere we soon got talking to some people and decided having seeing some of the food go out to return in the evening for a steak they looked great and with the option of jacket potatoes or sweet potatoes wedges rather than just chips seemed just what we wanted. However we arrived at about 7pm while the football was still on and four TV screens were showing the match, should have gone about 30 mins later cos it was impossible to sit down to enjoy a meal at that time. Must say however everyone was having a great time just wish we were into football cos the food looked great.

Went with some friends for Lunch and it was just burgers and chips so not too difficult to get wrong. Could go out of their way more to provide a more pub grub experience and that would certainly get some custom.

The Pied Calf sits in the centre of Spalding on what is called the Sheepmarket. It can be quite busy on Tuesday market day and is in a good position as the market is straight outside of the pub. Meals as well as drinks are served and there is a garden area outside to drink or eat your meal. Basic menu with nothing fancy so prices are reasonable to. Meals always served hot and do not take long to arrive. Can be a bit dark for some inside so best tables are by the side window.

We visited Spalding with our daughter earlier today and called in for a meal. Food was well cooked except for my wife's medium rare steak which unfortunately was too well cooked (overdone). Bringing this to the attention of the staff, they immediately apologised and took it away to replace it with a properly medium rare steak. The chef then came round a couple of minutes later to apologise as well and to ensure that it was as expected which it was, and very tasty as well. Then a few minutes later he brought round a big piece of chocolate fudge cake for us to share while my wife ate her steak. All this was done with good grace - other restaurants should take note. Definitely a place to return to in the future.
