Right in the heart of London’s famous Soho, The Spice of Life is a local music institution. While it looks like an ordinary pub from outside, venture indoors and you’ll find a top-notch jazz music venue that has hosted Jamie Cullum, Soweto Kinch and Darius Brubeck & Daryl Sherman to name just a few. It’s the latest musical wave to take over this historic building, which in former times (under different names) has welcomed everyone from Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and Cat Stevens to punk pioneers The Sex Pistols. Monday is open-mic night, Tuesday quiz night, with other evening concerts scattered through the week – plus lunchtime sessions on Wednesdays.

Found another London pub that serves my favorite cask ale, McMullen IPA! Great location in Soho and very comfortable inside. more
Popped into this pub unplanned when hunger pangs grabbed us wandering Soho. We got the special of the day, a roast beef meal, as well as an ale and the famed scotch egg. The egg was eggcellent! Beef meal and sides were okay, a bit tough, but with decent flavor. Decent meal for a fair price and quick service. Right across the street from the Harry Potter theatre. more
My girlfriend got a really nice fish and chips here, and that on its own would've probably warned a 5/5; however, the burger I got was less than stellar, both small and rather dry, additionally I got some very thin and boring fries where she had amazing fat ones.
