Hi, yes this is a False Widow. A big subject of fascination in the UK. Better than politics, I know, I do spider stuff much earlier in the day than checking political news. This is probably Steatoda paykulliana. I don’t know if the eye pattern varies within genus Steatoda. My second thought is Steatoda nobilis.
