Warm and welcoming pub, cool atmosphere and customers. It offers always new beers and the fish and chips is very tasty. Live music; despite the crowd, here you can feel like home

Nice pub with good food and sweet potato fries that are out of this world. Very convenient for after theatre drinks. Right by Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and not too busy on Sunday night. Last orders on Sunday at 10.30 pm

It was slow when we visited. Still the barman was pleasant and efficient. We ordered wine, while some pints and early lunches were served around us. The food looked delicious, if standard bar fare. We'll try it next time. The bar was spotless and tidy,...More

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a
compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,
and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red
Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the

I wouldn't call The Spice of Life a typical London pub as it is best known for the Jazz Club in its basement. However, it is a nice enough pub but I wouldn't take children there.
