The Admiral Codrington 1

Squaremeal Review of The Admiral Codrington ?

In a sea of ever-changing gastropubs, the ever-dependable Cod sails on regardless of fashion and fortune. Nestled in its quiet spot on a South Ken backstreet, this atmospheric boozer is an old-school Sloane favourite – its cosy interiors and imposing dark-wood bar means that it attracts a more mature crown than some of the neighbourhood’s haunts. At the back, a light-filled, softly furnished dining room offers a haven from the boozy hubbub, with a tried-and-tested line-up of dishes rarely veering too far off course. Staples such as the chunky slab of cod with sauce vierge and the expertly fashioned burger loaded with Applewood cheese and maple bacon inside a brioche bun are never off the menu. Although we’d like to see the kitchen mix things up a touch, with its jolly service and easily navigable wine list, there’s much to be said for the Cod’s unwavering consistency.

The Admiral Codrington seems to be a tale of 2 cities. The front parlour is rammed with high octane flirting and peacocking from old-money-but-working-in-something-suity types mostly under 35. But push through to the back and it opens out into an incredibly light, civilised little conservatory-housed bistro restaurant. I had actually been here before for boozy work drinks and several casual meals with friends (but inexplicably had forgotten this fact). The draw this time was the cheeseburger which...

REVIEW: The Admiral Codrington, Chelsea The Admiral Codrington Burger Review. The Admiral Codrington is extremely hidden and tucked away in the back roads in fashionable Chelsea, near Sloane Avenue. From the outside of this ‘Pub’ it looks very dated and dare I say it, normal. Once through its doors you arrive into a cosy, traditional pub with dark wooden cladding. I was about to place my order at the bar and take a seat when we were told that our table was around the side in the restaurant, it was...

When so many Sunday lunches are clearly kept around waiting to be served, meaning the vegetables and potatoes start to go, it was great to see an excellent roast beef plate, with perfectly well cooked vegetables and potatoes. The food here is well cooked and freshly made, sadly not something I can say for so many other venues. Well worth a visit if a good Sunday roast is what you are after. Don't waste your money on poor quality or imitations. The staff were attentive and accommodating the different...

As I’ve mentioned in my earlier reviews, I really enjoy the British pub grub type places. I’m obviously not referring to the smelly boozer hang-outs, but the slightly more polished pubs. The Cod is probably one of the best examples and has been one of my favourites for a long time, not so much for the excellent food, but more for the atmosphere and the pleasant staff. That said, I really do enjoy their menu. As I am a big meat-fan, I went for the steak tartar as a starter and the rump steak to follow....

    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!...

    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).
