We arrived at 7.25pm as we had our table booked for 7.30pm, we had never been here before so we were trying to find a member of staff to show us to our table, but there wasn't any around. We waited by the bar for 5 minutes until we were served to then be taken to our table. Our table was a little too intimate to the couple sat next to us. It looked like we were a table of 4 with a tiny gap in the middle where our tables divided. It was my fiancés birthday and wanted a more private table but there wasn't anymore tables to sit just 2 people. The service at the start wasn't the best to be honest. We were sat for 10 minutes before being asked if we wanted a drink and then a further 7 or 8 minutes before we got our food order taken. The food however was beautiful! Very tasty and appealing to the eye. Once our starters came out it didn't take long for the main to follow and then the dessert. I would say they just needed an extra member of staff on the floor. There was a female member of staff in the restaurant and 2 males in the bar area. One of the male staff came to help out in the restaurant and he was the one who took our orders and served us our food. I felt sorry for him running two floors when it seemed a bit busy in both areas. Staff were polite and kind. I would return for the food for sure and will still recommend to others. Just not sure about the service being up to scratch.

Lovely meal, could not fault the food or the service. A busy midweek evening. Acoustics in the dining room made it tricky to hear table conversations at times but this is a personal thing.

Nice food but a bit of background music would have made it feel less like a canteen

Excellent service and food. Booking was easy. My wife was a little bit cold but I thought it was a comfortable temperature with it being so hot outside so it shows you, you can’t please everyone. Halloumi was perfect and my wife wolfed down her quesidella. All staff very friendly and helpful and the place itself is immaculate. Not particularly expensive. Highly recommended.

Spider and Fky catered for a large party with great service and good food, even providing a vegan meal at short notice - I definitely recommend them.
