Service was very welcoming and friendly, me and my husband went for the Bottomless Brunch. The food was amazing and the cocktails were excellent! The staff were very attentive, always asking if we would like another cocktail! Would highly recommend to friends and family, we will definitely be back in the future!

1st time visitors and won't be the last. Staff were chilled and chatty , well designed interior , excellent drinks choice. I had the Fillet of Beef which is locally sourced , it was a quality bit of meat . The lady friend had the Sea Bass which was also cooked perfectly.

The only one negative comment is that the special of chicken on waffles with maple syrup was a little disappointing, we thought it may have been more then 2 pieces of chicken on 2 big waffles, but other than that everything else was fab, thank you we will return

We had a lovely time at the Spider and Fly celebrating our anniversary- last year we had our wedding reception at this venue. We were pleased to see that there was live music. The food was amazing, the staff brilliant and the live music gave this a magical touch.

Very disappointed with food. Menu stated rocket and tomato salad. Food arrived with masses of olives which I detest. I would have asked for them to be removed but we had waited so long for the food. Service was slow. I was disappointed because on the previous visit some time ago it had been excellent that is why I returned.

Service- Ordered drinks when we were first seated but they didn’t come. Food order wasn’t taken for around 30 mins of being seated and drinks still didn’t come until after food arrived. Friendly staff but slow service.

The food was amazing but sadly the same couldn't be said for anything else. We were the only people in for food (there were 4 people in the bar area) when we arrived but service still left a lot to be desired. The communication system between floor staff and kitchen is weird to say the least. Walkie talkies, great idea but might want to consider earpieces. We had to listen to a few strange conversations including "what is this that's just came down" (our food), she didn't know which was which. All very unprofessional. My other half asked for another drink, I had to shout after her that I would also like one....normally you would be asked. A few other people arrived while we were on main courses, but still not even half full yet we still sat for half an hour with empty plates waiting for them to be cleared and a dessert order taken. We gave up in the end and paid at the bar, leaving without any pudding.
