Great place to meet my mates. I drink lager and they can drink their real ales. Lovely staff. Wonderful background music. Real chill pub,with history. Shame they put a film on the Windows. Always liked to see who was walking on either side of the pub. Still good.

Very crowded in the evenings, but worth a visit! McMullen is one of the better breweries, and the bar has also a wide range of gin and other spirits. They also have live music. Staff is well very friendly, even when the place is crowded.

We enjoyed our drinks while standing for the entire time as the pub was full. Very good varieties of gin . Staff are very professionals. Highly recommended for the West End Theater fans going for a drink or two before the show.

Called in here for a quick pre theatre drink before seeing the Harry Potter play. Very busy but had a great ambiance and prices much better than the Theatre. The pub was decorated nicely for Christmas and the staff friendly. A warm atmosphere and well worth visiting.

We chose to eat here as we were staying at the Z hotel over the road and having spent all day on our feet couldn't bring ourselves to walk any further. We were unsure what to expect but were pleasantly surprised at the choice of food and the quality. We opted for 5 starters for £20 which represents good value... More

Just met friends for pre Christmas drinks. Such a lovely traditional pub with a great atmosphere, warm and friendly staff. Decorated in a traditional fashion with ornate huh ceilings.

There is nothing I love more than a decent wine glass and these guys have some! I think it has been recently returned as the interior was a lot nicer than I recall, but maybe I'm wrong. All in all a nice warm pub with some outside seating and a downstairs too. Perfect for pre-theatre. But that also means it... More

This pub in smack in the centre of London, I visited prior to a lunch at Ronnie Scott's and couldn't believe how quiet it was. A selection of decent pints and the prices weren't out of the world either. We popped back in after the show, and the place was still pretty empty for some reason

Thank Paul C
Spice_Soho, Manager at The Spice Of Life, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to review our pub. Most appreciated! You must have picked the one day this December that's been reasonably quiet. Great to hear you enjoyed your visit though. Hope to see you again. Merry Christmas! More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
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 most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
