At some point I discovered The Admiral Codrington’s burger ranked #3 on a list of Londons best burgers at http://youngandfoodish.com/london/top-10-burgers-in-london/ – to check if it is any good, I decided to go there myself.
On a rainy Sunday afternoon, I looked up the address and went down to South Kensington tube station, from there it’s just a few minutes walk.
The Admiral Codrington is a nice, light, and really comfortable place to spend some time. I had a great wine, and also didn’t need to wait long for the highly appreciated burger. I fully support Daniel Young’s judgment to put it at least on #3 in London’s burger top ten. The meat was deliciously prepared, and the bun fitted the patty perfectly. It was big enough, but not too big, and it didn’t dissolve somewhere on the way.
If you like burgers, you shouldn’t miss this one! I also genuinely liked the furniture and interior, it’s really a very nice place to eat a brilliant burger and read an articulate article while enjoying a wonderful wine.
@Gordonwhite – I’d second that – this is one of the best burgers in London, scoring a top notch 10/10.
The Admiral Codrington cheeseburger is quite possibly the most amazingly constructed burger in London today. Every element blends seamlessly together to produce a cheeseburger greater than the sum of its parts. At £15 it’s up there in terms of price, but also included are excellent hand-cut chips and a top quality set of ingredients to boot.
It’s five stars. End of story.
Some of the best burgers in London -at least in the top five and this is from experts in the field (not me).
Also a splendid wine list that would be considered affordable even in less salubrious parts of London. (Well the bottom end of the wine list, anyway.)
And they serve Padron peppers! Lovely, smoky, moreish Padron peppers with that little hint of danger. (About one in ten of them is properly hot.)
There is simply no better place to go after work in Chelsea. There I said it.
I wouldn’t say moderately priced! £7.50 for a glass of wine and £14.50 for a burger wherever I’ve been I would suggest is high but for the area expected. nice food wasn’t as outstanding as I was promised but certainly tasty! Service was slightly overstretched but no complaints overall. Fab bathroom facilities with hand moisturiser for us girls and a good covered outside facility for smokers and summer weather. All in all a nice treat and good venue, and a happy birthday to my friend James whom the visit was a celebration for.

Very much a gastropub, they even have a posher restaurant section of the pub, if you don’t feel like eating with the riff raff. The pub wasn’t so food focused that a simple drinker such as myself would feel alienated…but it wasn’t far off. Have I mentioned I’m not a big fan of Gastropubs? At least 100 times you say??
Nice outside area, but the day I was here was so unbearably hot that a paleface like myself couldn’t take advantage of it. Many people were and the pimms was flowing liberally. Would have been nice
Had a decent pint of Black Sheep, which I was slightly nervous of following my vinegary experience. No such problems here. This is soooo not my kind of place, but at least the beer was good.
Admiral Codrington was a hero of the Battle of Trafalger
The Ad Cod, as it’s know in the area, is an established haunt of the Chelsea set. It is always busy, and is great for spending a good couple of hours in, whether it’s winter or summer. They have a wide range of drinks, moderately priced considering the area, and it’s tucked away on back street, but has a hugely loyal following. It can be a bit 'rah’ but the food is good and the staff are always pleasant. The heated decking area is perfect for smokers, although does fill up quickly. A good mix of clientelle, although leaning heavily towards Chelsea residents, definitely worth popping into for a drink or two.
this pub is a bit lost in the heart of chelsea but it is what makes its charm. as you have to fight your way through to find it, it is always very quiet and calm and people there are laid back and friendly.
they have a great wine list with some amazing bottles that nobody can actually afford. for the ones with normal prices applicable, they are good and I never had any bad surprises like having one corked or too hot. this is quite appreciable as london pubs tend to leave the bottle of red wine under the lamps forever and you end up drinking mulled wine instead of what you had ordered.
they also have nice beers other than the ones you can find in big branches or tourists pubs. this is a proper english pub made for real men.
always the good point as well in these days when the smoking ban is king, there is a heated garden, with tables and benches and enough spaces to squeeze all your mates (sqeeze to keep you warm even better)
this pub is for you if you want a quiet night chatting or a romantic date but bear in mind that it is no o'neils. it is all about the british nonchalance...
