It's a cool pub, friendly atmosphere, staff are polite and the food is good. On the edge of Soho and right next to the theatres,. It can get busy, so be warned for busy periods at that pub. It has recently and I swear the pub has had a refurb to improve it. There is a music bar downstairs, seriously I've never been in that bit of the part. Check on their website or ask staff what's down stairs all about. Men's toilets still stinks, but sadly, most men can't use toilets properly, so don't worry about it.

Wonderful service and surprisingly good food. The bar staff were so lovely and very accommodating, even though one of them was trying to contend with a really rude customer, they remained polite and professional. Downstairs was great too. I went to see Soul Immigrants who I really do recommend. There was such a great atmosphere. My only criticism is that the pub/restaurant is a bit too hectic to properly enjoy a sit-down meal, but the full menu is served down in the basement too, so I'll be eating there next.

Good quality beer and food with a really nice live music!! If you like going out in Soho, this is a key piece in it. You can enjoy a drink in the ground floor, but also you can enjoy the music in the basement. There is always good quality of bands playing there. You must check before get there,because sometimes you have to pay to enjoy the music. but in an affordable way (usually not more than 5 pounds)

Decent beer, well kept and good temperature.
Friendly barstaff (actually friendly, not faux friendly; had a spirited yet amicable political discussion with one of them).
Fantastic air conditioning.
Didn't try the food after looking at the prices - first item on the menu is a £4.50 scotch egg, which is even more than The Pint Shop in Cambridge, and they make theirs fresh to order.

Popped in for a drink before dinner and ended up eating here. We were in town on a Tuesday for a show and they do a meal deal of a burger and a drink for £10. The burgers were lovely and obviously freshly cooked. I had the chicken with brie and onion chutney. All burgers come with plenty of chips and in a brioche bun with salad in. Very good value for money. Will definitely visit again

Just popped in for a break from the hubbub of a hot and busy London. The pub has a lovely wooden interior, plenty of space to eat and some very welcome air conditioning. The food menu is not extensive but is on par for a central London pub. There is a good beer selection and plenty of bottles too. Soft drinks are a bit sparse but there are fruit juices (from cartons not fresh).

Visited the Spice of Life on a Monday night as they hold an Open Mic evening where musicians can perform to an audience. We rang in advance to reserve a table as we had been before & it is a popular night and is usually full. There is a bar & food can be ordered & eaten whilst watching the acts performing. We ordered bugers which were very good. We will return !

They call it Open Mic Night I would say it's a bit of Blues Jam Jazz...every Monday evening, everybody can give it a go. I've been there on New Year's Eve twice...great atmosphere, easy, nice music, which most of the people would like...To make your evening more enjoyable. They serve some good food, too. Every time we went we had great time☺

They've revamped their look a bit indoors but have maintained the classic London pub vibe. Large for a pub in Soho so great for larger groups. Also good in the summer as they have plenty of standing room outside (unlike some other pubs in soho where you get hemmed in to keep the pavement clear) Good selection of beer and friendly staff

4 by Tom Feist-Wilson Review source

What a great little pub, they have a decent snack menu I'd suggest the popcorn chicken for sure. They also have more seating downstairs if it's too busy upstairs. They have a reasonable range of drinks and the staff are friendly, also they often have interesting shows happening downstairs including magic shows.

4 by David Iwanow Review source

Nice little place right in the heart of the hustle and bustle. Good selection of beer and ale, some unusual stuff there as well as the standard fare. Menu is good with some nice small plate, snack and sharing options. There a live music venue downstairs with regular events and the staff are always friendly and helpful.

4 by Paul Rushforth Review source

Wonderful bar! Great selection of beers and craft beers on tap. Great layout in the bar with plenty of space and large tables alcoved off from each other to cater for reasonably sized groups. The food was amazing, that chicken burger was so tender and juicy. Could definitely get comfortable in there for a night out.

5 by Ciaran Sinnott Review source

We are spoilt for choice with bars in Soho.
This is another good place to go for decent drink and chat.
Large pub and really friendly staff.
Lot more media people getting down there for an evening chat.
Good beer and nice vibes.

Friendly bar with a decent range of beers for a Soho bar.
Always feels like there's just the right amount of people here. Not too crowded.
Great live music in the downstairs bar from local bands. Paid entry usually but cheap and entertaining.

5 by Mike Dixson Review source

Reasonably priced for central, not too packed on a Friday night, able to reserve areas for extra peace of mind. Friendly staff and quick glass collection. Had a great time and will go back to try their food (Only there for pre dinner drinks this time)

5 by Charlotte Barnes Review source

We stopped here as part of a Soho tour and heard it used to be a studio that was a big part of the music scene in the 60s/70s before cit was this bar.
Good beer, lots of music artwork and still hosts jazz music nights in the bar downstairs.

4 by Allen Mack-Kretzler Review source

One of the best place to go for live music. Groups are not pretentious and quality is always there. The open jam nights are really great to watch and listen. The place gets packed pretty fast so you have to arrive pretty early if you want to sit.

4 by joris huynh Review source

Good prices for food, for example soup and a sandwich for under £6, plus a reasonably priced bar menu.

Lively, atmospheric, quick and efficient service with a separate bar downstairs for live music. Good location, worth a visit.

5 by Mr Pickle Review source

It's a decent option if you want to hang outside for drinks in a crowded Soho evening. They do have a couple of great options of beers, besides the usual pub lagers, so it's ok, but don't expect a nice cosy place there.

3 by Rafael Freitas Review source

Nice! Relaxing choons played by wonderful bandz in the basement. Be prepared to queue for about 30 minutes at the bar there though chuh the service is awful. But you can still listen to the choons played by the bandz as you do so.

4 by Jonathan Baker-Bates Review source

Always a good pub stop either before or after a show. Great food always freshly cooked, simply ordered from the bar and brought to your table when ready. Varied selection of both alcoholic and soft drinks to choose from.

5 by Andy T Review source

Reliably decent pub in Soho. Always a good beer selection, food menu looks good and they have regular live music downstairs too. Standard London prices for drinks, not silly expensive but around £4-5 for a pint.

4 by Oli L Review source

I went timer friends before Christmas so it might have been busier than usual but it was very noisy, crowded and uncomfortable. Big pub right by Cambridge Circus so a convenient place to meet but not my choice.

3 by Linda Martin Review source

Great lunch & excellent friendly attentive staff.All round winner for atmosphere,price & location.
Free glass of bubbly as my lunch arrived ten minutes after my friends.Very happy customers.

5 by Elizabeth Abdelkereem Review source

Always really quick service at the bar. Even when its busy, you never seem to have to wait long. Great selection of beers on tap, including Estrella. The decor is a bit 'brown', but good value

4 by clare pask Review source

Very good pub in the heart of London's theatre world. Vast away of drinks including cask ales. Perfect for pre-theatre food & drinks and the staff are friendly and welcoming too.

4 by Emma Webb Review source

Burger and drink for £10. That should have been the warning sign. Awful. Dry burger with none of the advertised sauce. Cold fries with none of the advertised sauce. Meh. Won’t be back.

2 by James Curran Review source

Nice pub for a cheeky drink during the day with some nice food selections. Gets quite busy in the evenings but still nice enough to have a drink. There's a downstairs bar as well.

4 by Frances Almeida-Davis Review source

Great pub in central London. Always full of local young professionals after work hours.

There's a space downstairs and they often have live music performances.

5 by Claude Waddington Review source

Awesome pub. The pub never feels really full. The location is superb and the food+drinks are great.

There's a stage downstairs with a lot of live music!
