A Country Brunch at The Admiral Codrington
Tucked away on a quiet back street just off the Kings Road is a hidden gem, The Admiral Codrington. It might take a little finding but if you take the time to discover it you will be rewarded with a wonderful pub and award winning restaurant.
The Admiral Codrington has long been renowned as a top place to dine in the local area, with the Michelin Guide describing it as a ‘Chelsea Institution’. Needless to say, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try the new brunch menu one summer Saturday morning.
‘A Country Brunch’ is served in the restaurant every Saturday from 11am – 3pm, and is designed to help you enjoy a lazy Saturday with a delicious plate of food and a refreshing cocktail. The menu has tried to celebrate all the flavours the British countryside has to offer with the ingredients sourced from all corners of the country, including lobster from Selsey Harbour, Inverawe smoked trout and asparagus from the Wye Valley.
This concept has led to a selection of tantalising dishes, which I was eager to try. The menu includes a crispy pancetta with brioche and maple syrup, sautéed jersey royals with bacon, black pudding and egg as well as Selsey lobster Caesar and Var salmon rillettes. The choice was difficult as there are so many interesting options but I couldn’t resist the Gladys May’s duck eggs and asparagus, all perfectly presented. It really hit the spot!
The best accompaniment to these incredible dishes is one of the ‘pick me up’ cocktails. They are a fun addition to the menu and help give the brunch some extra pizzazz.
These tipples and some great food, combined with the beautiful restaurant decor, means you have a perfect destination for a relaxing start to your Saturday.
