Overall great place, love it. Only issue I’ve had the last 2 times I’ve been is the service. Sometimes orders didn’t turn up, were wrong or just took far too long. Hope it improves because I’ll definitely be back.

It was all very lovely ! The place itself is effortlessly cool, the atmosphere is nice and relaxed without ever being boring, the service was unobtrusive yet efficient, the manager, Josh was very nice and friendly . It was my birthday and my guests kept arriving in small groups , arriving and leaving in a constant wave of mini groups of 3-6 at a time ; food was top quality and even the quality of the white wine I chose ( a nice Gruner Veltliner) was outstanding. Can’t wait to visit again

Great to have cool bar added to this area which makes it more of a destination now. Loved the DJ by the entrance; adds to the eclectic vibe and styling of the bar. Fun place to meet friends for cocktails.

Had a great evening at Spiritland, great cocktails, food very limited but what was on offer was lovely and tasty. Great DJ playing fab old school very cool mix, casual vibe. Majority of staff were very friendly, got off to a bad start as were seated right next to speakers - which would have been ok if just drinking and chilling but we were eating and catching up with friends and you couldn't hear yourself speak. Politely asked to move and were told 'we're full no other tables' when there clearly were - didn't give good 1st impression but as we were about to leave other staff very kindly gave us option to move to another table which worked out great..... little staff training for some possibly... anyway this didn't ruin the evening and would recommend as a great night out overall.

Music and food were good but they seated us at a table literally right next to the speaker so not only could i not hear my friend and had to shout the entire time, my ear was actually sore afterwards. We asked to move to an empty table without music blaring in our ears but were told assignments couldn’t be changed. I can’t imagine that it’s worth having one extra table in exchange for such a miserable dining experience.

Service was a bit slow at times - music was too loud at times too but that’s down to the DJs really not checking levels. Not keen on the new menu. Last winter there was a lovely pie you did - please bring it back :)

Very cool place, but the music can get incredibly loud and makes it almost impossible to speak to anyone, plus the waiters are not trained very well. Food is great and the music is very good as well.

I loved Spiritland. The environment was very cool and chic. The occasion was a business meeting so I'd say it was a little too busy for this sort of thing, but still good fun. Impressive cocktails and good finger food.

first visit, service wasn’t great!
Bill arrived showing a service charge which is obviously ok, card machine then asks for more gratuity! waitress explains that they don’t receive the service it’s for building services etc and they’re paid sh*t. Probably why service was so bad and wouldn’t hurry back

Beautiful and sophisticated bar with food in a vibrant area of London. We had a lovely evening with good cocktails and great atmosphere. Only downside was that they forgot two of our dishes. As soon as we let the waiter know he made sure both got to us asap and on the house, so great service.

Great venue and sound system, live djs and speakers in the individual toilets. I had booked this for a date as had previously been here for brunch and we had noted that it was lovely to be able to talk and hear the music but not shout. By 8pm however ( arrived at 8.45) the level had been cranked up and we were shouting across the table to converse.

The place must be great in the evening but for weekend brunch it is a rather poor choice, even though they do advertise themselves as a brunch place.

The food was tasty but portions quite ridiculously small and definitely overpriced.

They also seem to be short on sugar because one of the waiters kept on snatching it from our table without asking and was almost shocked when we asked him to put it back (twice as well).

On overall, I’d only visit the place again if I ran out of other options.

Always love coming here, but never really visited in the summer, as they never had an outside seated area... which they do now, so I'm really happy!

Great service as always, and it was good to see the menu get a bit of refresh, with the come of the classic dishes still remaining. The Marguez Sausage Roll, is amazing!

Drinks are still on point.

Music as ever is always awesome.

One of my fave spots in London, and on this occasion, I would definitely recommend for a date.

Hello, I LOVE your bar and i come regurarly. The djs are amazing, the music, the environment, thecocktails. However, the music is way too loud sometimes. I love this place so i come a lot but my friends cannot bare the volume of the music and don't want to come back.. They are in their early thirties so it is not that they are too old for loud music. I believe if the volume was a little lower everyone would enjoy it even more. Many thanks!
