Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This looks like a male Black Lace-weaver, Amaurobius ferox.

Hi,and welcome to the site. Nothing for size reference, i may be, but this is a male and they seem very long legged and scrawny next to female. It is a funnel weaver with two other good possibilities, the Eratagena agrestis and Tegenaria domestica. A male giant house spider:
