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.

Excellent service - the waitress was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.
The food was good - the vegetarian main course was OK but a bit bland.
Overall a very pleasant evening.

A good and reliable pub with enclosed restaurant (or other way around as you see it fit the occasion) that's been around for ages. Nothing spectacular but good steady cooking (much better than your average pub food)

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 according to a recent poll conducted by Burgerac (is there a better named food blogger?!) is London's favourite burger. With stiff competition from the likes of Meatliquor and the Piggy Burger at Bar Boulod that is a big claim and we had to check it out. The burger is indeed sublime and earns the 10/10 rating: a brioche style bun robust enough to hold in the juicy patty (cooked to medium pinky perfection) without falling apart but without stealing the show either. Hand cut chips provide a great foil to the main show. It's not just about the burgers though. I had a brilliant creamy burrata starter, although my fiancee was a bit disappointed with his cold globe artichoke, and we shared a deliciously rich sticky toffee pud to end. Service is spot on with the meal well paced and the only flaw being a slight delay in delivery of the chips. There is a great range of customers providing a background hum although it has to be noted that there are some children, some Americans and the couple next to us eat their burgers with a knife and fork. WHAT?! Everyone knows the whole point of meat between bread is that you can eat it with your fingers thus allowing you to continue gambling away your inheritance unhampered by cutlery. Ask the Earl of Sandwich. If you don't have an inheritance you should know the bill including a good bottle of Argentinian Malbec was a very reasonable £45 a head. I will not forget this place again.
