Right across from Palace Theatre. Popped in for a few drinks before show and after. Just had drinks but nice bar and efficient staff. Didn't eat but food looked lovely.

A busy Soho pub that manages good beer (as in: cask ale) and very acceptable food. The downstairs bar has a reputation for live music to add to the attraction of this establishment. Polite staff to add to the mix.

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.
