Square Meal Review of The Admiral Codrington ?

Ruling the waves from its secluded berth, the redoubtable ‘Cod’ is set up admirably to cope with the varying demands of SW3. At the front, a dark-wood boozer is everything your middle-aged Chelsea-ite dreams of in a local – from sausage rolls to lashings of real ale. To the side, lager-swilling trustafarians can puff on cigars in the covered beer garden, while a light-filled, soft-furnished restaurant at the back is a little haven for locals and date-night couples. The menu rarely changes but the kitchen makes a decent fist of things: salt-and-chilli squid arrives in a dark, crunchy batter topped with spring onions, first-rate burgers come loaded with rare-breed beef, smoked cheese and rich tomato chutney in a brioche bun, while the likes of a rhubarb syllabub bring up the rear. Cheery service typifies the easy-going, please-all attitude.

  1. Until I moved to London, I thought that a burger was and could only ever be a good one or a bad one. How wrong I was. Recently, Londoners have led a burger movement backed up by passionate chefs like Yianni Papoutis (MeatLiquor) who is constantly striving to serve the perfect bun, bloggers who have ...

    HungryinLondon :: ADMIRAL CODRINGTON (Chelsea)

    If you are only somewhat involved in the London food scene, you can’t help but hear about the exceptional burgers at Admiral Codrington, a gastro pub located in a small side street in the middle of Chelsea.  Intrigued, I went there last weekend for Sunday lunch and I can report back that the rumours are true: This is a gastro pub to watch out for, and not only the burgers make it well worth a visit...

  1. An email popped into my inbox the other day with an old, familiar name in the subject line. 'New Lobster Burger at the Admiral Codrington' it proclaimed, and immediately memories were stirred of the most marvellous and exciting burgers I've ever eaten. A Big Mac styled Big Boy as part of a MockDonalds burger tasting, The Ad Cod cheeseburger, a trio of burgers that included a triple chilli burger...

    Burgaffair :: The Admiral Codrington

    “Adders Codders” was next on the list. To be completely honest, this is the first which we haven’t previously frequented out of all the reviews so far. Needless to say we were “bare excited.” I suppose this place in South Ken and Burger & Lobster in Mayfair shows that the burger is for one and all. Clearly the love of a good burger spans all classes and types!
    Terrible, terrible weather. The heavens had opened just before we arrived but once inside we stopped whinging. Quite posh here but we had heard great things about the burger so this visit was a must...

  1. 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!...
