Squaremeal Review of The Admiral Codrington ?

The Cod' has prospered for so long largely because it's remarkably flexible. A dark-wood and barstool boozer out front, a light, modern dining room at the back and a nicely heated alfresco terrace all combine to create a venue that is many things to many people. While we've been fans for eons, our last visit had us thinking that the place could do with a light refresh. The menu presents modern gastropub dishes such as; butter-poached turbot and chestnut pappardelle, roast pigeon with candied beetroot, and lamb rump on crushed potatoes. As for drinks, we'd hoped for something from London's craft ale scene, but sadly there were only a couple of provincial beers on draught. However, the polish is still there and locals love it, so be sure to sniff it out if you're in SW3.

    Whistle and Bango :: The Admiral Codrington | a fine Kensington pub | The London Whistler

    The Admiral Codrington in the heart of South Kensington triumphs in achieving the ultimate cosy English pub feel, particularly at Christmas time with its fur cladded bar and glittering tree. Last week I was lucky enough to visit twice, both times successfully chancing a table for dinner and very pleased with the standard all round. I can proudly announce that the Admiral Codrington is new winter favourite!...

    Her Favourite Food :: Her Favourite Food: Admiral Codrington, Chelsea

    I wasn’t really sure what to expect from the dining area when I first walked into The Admiral Codrington Pub. On a Friday evening it was pretty full and really loud (as one would expect from an after work crowd). But as soon as I mentioned I had a reservation I was lead back to a modern, refurbished area in the back that was just enough off the main pub area that the loud crowd was a mere hum of noise.

    Chelsea mainstay, The Admiral Codrington, is a smart pub to keep in mind for a low-key rendezvous in an upscale atmosphere.
    The pub has a rather resplendent dining area. But keen to soak up the sunshine on the especially sunny Sunday we visited, my friend and I dine outdoors on the deck (with pretty much everyone else at the pub that day).
