Several Cleric domains have the Divine Strike feature giving bonuses to weapon attacks. Does Spiritual Weapon benefit from this feature?

No

Divine Strike (PHB, pp60) requires

...when you hit a creature with a weapon attack

and Spiritual Weapon states (PHB, pp278)

...make a melee spell attack

Because you are using a spell attack rather than a weapon attack, Divine Strike can't be used with Spiritual weapon.

    \$\begingroup\$ @Chemus yeah, there is this kind of confusion everywhere. See Mr. Crawford clarify the Leomund tiny hut spell: twitter.com/JeremyECrawford/status/823774362293542912 (Mr. Crawford, read your own book - lolz) \$\endgroup\$
