“Blue Spider”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

This is a great place for a family night out or a quite dinner with your partner.Great food reasonably priced with outstanding service. Bar prices are about average pub prices. Excellent Menu. Warm ,welcoming and for me a regular place from now on to eat.

“Our new local”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

Very nice t bone steak, great service and great atmosphere, right on our doorstep too! This is the fourth time we have been but the first time we have had food and we were not disappointed. Staff are great, nothing is too much trouble. The wine and cocktail bar are fab too. Also has fantastic decor and is always immaculately clean. Overall a lovely, friendly place with great food, will definitely be visiting a lot :)

“Thoroughly average!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

Went here New Years Eve for a meal. The food quality wasn't much different to Pepes next door. Only difference is they do more meat.

Atmosphere wasnt to bad. Service was quote slow between starter and main course. Mainly due to volume of people in restaurant.

In terms of value for money, it wasn't to bad. For what you pay I would have expected to have better presentation on my plate though.

Won't be rushing back in a hurry. Rather visit other restaurants in the area over The Blue Spider.
