Had brunch/lunch here before heading to watch Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. We shared a beef burger and a buttermilk chicken burger between four of us. The beef was juicy and the chicken cooked just right. Came complete with fries. Very satisfying.

Came here to grab some fish and chips before a show down the street. Typical British pub, order both your drinks and food at the bar and they will bring it out to your table. The pub wasn't very crowded and yet was quite loud....More

As a pub it's pretty average for Soho, the kind of prices you'd expect. What prompted this review was the ironically named "sweet potato and halloumi burger", which is actually just a bun with some salad.... oh, and hidden somewhere in there is a slice...More

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.
