Review on Admiral Codrington
The Admiral Codrington from the outside is an unpretentious Chelsea boozer (known locally as 'The cod') and looks like just another drinkers' hangout, but it conceals a few additional treats. Out front is a rumbustious bar with real ales on draught and a short menu of upmarket pub grub including chicken Caesar salad, minute steak with frites and eggs Benedict.
At the back is a long, bright and cheerful dining room with a sliding glass roof to let in those much-needed sunbeams and piscatorial prints on the walls. Seafood is a speciality, with the self-named 'Admiral's Fish & Chips' taking pride of place; other piscine options might range from crispy salmon and smoked salmon fishcakes to pan-roasted sea bream with braised chicory, baby fennel and citrus fruits.
Rib-eye steaks on the bone and roast marinated fillet of Suffolk White pork with grain mustard mash please meat eaters, and there are desserts such as pear tarte Tatin with cinnamon ice cream or sticky toffee pudding to round things off. Just about everything on the brief, carefully chosen wine list is available by the glass.
