dine with us

The Spider and Fly is an award-winning Carlisle Bar & Kitchen open five days a week.

Our knowledge, expertise and approach has established us as one of the leading Bar & Kitchens for food and drink in Carlisle, taking great pride in what we offer our guests. With attention to every detail of the customer experience, providing a relaxing, welcoming hub for the local community as well as those visiting. A destination as well as a home from home. 

Food is a major part of what we do and we offer a diverse range of seasonal dishes all handmade from fresh ingredients through locally sourced suppliers. The same passion we have for our food is carried through to our wide selection of drinks, we focus on local artisan products alongside the big brands, offering quality and range.

During these uncertain times we have taken extensive steps to ensure our staff and guests safety whilst maintaining The Spider & Fly we all know and love.  Therefore, we will only be able to welcome groups of up to 6 for the time being, but we will keep you updated if this changes. Due to recent government guidelines we will be operating table service only, this means we cannot offer seats at the bar, or standing service at the bar until it is deemed safe to do so. 

Our staff are trying their upmost to provide you with the best experience possible, and we appreciate all of your efforts in helping us keep serving food and drinks safely!

Outdoor seating is available all year.

We look forward to welcoming you to
