First time out for a meal since lock down. Felt very covid safe with lots of measures in place. Food and service were excellent. Would highly recommend.

We've come here lots but were pretty disappointed with our visit yesterday. There was a half hour wait for our drinks and food arrived 50 mins after we arrived. Food was yummy as usual but service was really poor. I had to ask to order our drinks, then chase them and ask for the music to be turned down as it was blaring out and we were sat under the speaker with our newborn and 3 year old. I appreciate you need music for an atmosphere but this was like the manager was out and the staff thought they'd whack up the music! After asking the music wasnt turned down. I went and asked again when they did turn it down(only a little amount). Little things like we asked for sauces and a teaspoon for my daughter to eat with and that took ages to come back. We also ordered fish goujons for my daughter and asked for beans and mushy peas instead of chips as shes not bothered by them. They said this was fine then when tbe food arrived an embarrassed member of staff said oh I checked and we've run out of beans... and there was chips on the plate. Would have appreciated being told that earlier when we had the option to change the order. I would add that once a female member of staff arrived (long hair) she had a totally different approach, far more efficient, friendly and just acted like she knew what she was doing! Our meals were yummy as always and wine was good. My hubby ordered a pale ale that when it finally arrived there was a massive head on it so he asked them to top it up. I appreciate times are different now, cleanliness was good and the staff were obviously trying to follow good practice but there's no excuse for slow poor service. We asked for the bill which didnt arrive so I ended up going to pay at the bar. I wasn't asked how my meal was at this point otherwise I would have said but I just wanted to leave as the music was still too loud and my newborn head just woken up. This was our anniversary meal and such a shame as normally we love it here. I used to come here all the time with mum friends during mat leave and had hoped to do this, this time round but not sure I'd be keen to rush back. Please think about all groups of people coming to eat (especially in the day) and not just those who want music so loud you can't talk.

Went for Sunday roast. Lamb was inconsistently cooked despite sous vide. Yorkshire pudding was burned. Overcharged. Wouldn't recommend.

Drinks were lovely. Good atmosphere. Staff lovely attentive and friendly. Only thing that let it down was the food. Found it a bit soggy and greasy and a bit underwhelming.

Lovely evening at the spider & fly. Relaxing atmosphere. Food was of a high standard & friendly helpful staff. Complimentary drinks for our anniversary was such a personal touch. Thank you. Spider and fly.

Food wasn't what we expected. When we asked for salsa with the nachos we didn't expect to receive cut up raw onion and tomato - we expected a salsa sauce however that is just personal taste. Non the less the Spider & Fly had a lovely atmosphere, staff worked well together taking orders, ensure people were 2m away from each other and a nice experience during this difficult time. Hopefully will be back in the future to try it again
