Description: The Admiral Codrington in the heart of London's stylish Chelsea has been a dining institution for Londoners for many years and is renowned for its excellent British cuisine. Part cosy traditional pub, part elegant and award-winning restaurant, here you can relax at the bar with a pint of Cask Marque ale and enjoy some homemade sausage rolls or dine on native lobster and Chateaubriand steak paired with an exquisite fine wine. Pop down on a Wednesday to savour one of their famed gourmet burgers or make a pit-stop on a Sunday for their award-winning roasts. There is also an elegant private room, the Navarino room, hidden away atop the inn where you can host your own intimate soiree - perfect for special occasions. The Cod has received 1 Rosette by the AA and is part of 'Pub group of the year 2018' by The Good Pub Guide.

We had a large group for dinner and booked the private dining room. When we walk through the side door up the narrow stairwell, I wasn’t expecting much but wow when we walked in to the private dining room it looked beautiful with flowers on the table and looked so grand.

The waiter was so helpful and very accommodating. We had a set menu for large groups with a choice of 3 options for entree, main and dessert and I wasn’t keen on any of the entree options so advised the waiter that I would sit out of entree. He was so lovely taking the time to understand why I wanted to miss the meal and offered me alternative options. He really didn’t have to but bless him, he was so lovely.

The meals were all great, although after 3 courses we were extremely full and glad for the walk back to the tube.

Great pub, wonderful food and fantastic wait staff. Would definitely recommend this pub.

Working in the Knightsbridge area we stumbled across 'The Admiral Codrington' and decided to stop for lunch their. Very welcoming bar area with spacious restaurant area towards the back of the pub. I should also say they have a small courtyard which had been adorned with artificial grass and blossom as they were about to start a promotion for apple based drinks. It was lovely!
I had fish and chips with the crispiest of batters and delicious chips. My partner had the burger and chips which again was delicious. We shared each others meal as they both looked so appetizing and we were not disappointed. I must mention Raphael (the general manager) for the service he and his staff gave us, efficient and very friendly.

Went here on the recommendation of a friend who lived nearby. Lovely neighborhood. Great service and good menu. The front area looks like a traditional pub, but the restaurant in back is airy and chic.
