But we're not just about eating and drinking... We firmly believe that any pub should be the hub of it's local community, and try to provide a selection of events to cater for all the eclectic and wonderful people who live in Fulham. Our door is always open (during designated opening hours) and there's always something going on to get involved with or laugh at in equal measures. It's not a pub, it's a way.
Sat on the sunny and slightly noisy terrace for a delicious Sunday roast. The service was very friendly and attentive.
Absolutely appalling, requested for a booth to be booked for anniversary, turned up to find we were given another table which had 7 people on there. Shocked to hear that only one booth had been booked so the management had failed to assign us a booth despite no on else booking it. There great apology and compromise was to give us a table in front of the men's toilet, noting we wanted to eat dinner. After one coke we left, absolutely dreadful, massive dissapointment.
They don’t actually honour Open Table reservations. Food was fine once we got a table.
The Sunday lunch was great, but the service was not very good, and the puddings really not great.
A nice sports pub, the waitress was lively and served all of us impeccably. Y Sunday roast was super juicy (pork belly) and I loved the long crackling coming with it!
Food didn’t come with what it said it did on the menu and we had things missing. Pudding had sauces added to it which were not meant to be which ruined it and didn’t go with it
Poor service. General attitude from staff wasn't particularly friendly or enthusiastic. Made an appointment which they thought had been cancelled despite that not being the case and me having the appointment booking confirmation to evidence as such. Was found a replacement table but at what the waitress would've had me believe was the biggest effort of her entire life.
Roast was lovely though, can't fault that.
I'd booked a table for the football, however after being told that we would be let in ask we had booked a table, the bouncer refused to let us in. It was overcrowded, but they didn't account for the people that had booked weeks in advance like me. Very disappointed as this is one of my favourites pubs in Fulham and I thought they would be more accommodating. I won't be going back after making it my local for the past year.
The food is overpriced and not that great. We were not asked how we wanted roast beef cooked, very rare so hardly eaten. Little vegetables which were under cooked. Had to send back child burger as it wasn’t as requested. 5 large Diet Coke cost £16.50!
£13.50 for the smallest roast I’ve ever seen. Two roast potatoes and no Yorkshire pudding(s) with the pork belly roast. What I had tasted good but the quantity was terrible and not worth it in the slightest. I had to eat again when I got home.
Not sure if it was the app or the durell but complete waste of time booking a table as football was on we was told no table was booked. Some staff great some staff miserable.
We booked this as a place to go before the Fulham Villa game at the weekend. Service was quick considering it was busy. Wish I had known about the gooey fries they looked awesome. Will probably go back after a heavy night for those another time.
Booked Sunday lunch here with my daughter and boyfriend as they live nearby. None of our party had eaten at the Durell before, however the reviews on OpenTable were good, so we went for it. Had roast beef and yorkshire pudding and it was very nice indeed. All members of our party enjoyed the meal. Pub/Restaurant is very spacious so you didn't feel crammed in like other places, and overall the ambience was good. Staff serving were very helpful and attentive. Would definitely go back again.
Great atmosphere and a really good day, but we had paid £250 for a booth package and had to ask for the food to be delivered 3 or 4 times. Quite frustrating but good day all in all.
Went for dinner on a Friday night - pub was busy, almost all tables taken. Young bustly vibe. Went to order food, didn't have half the options available from the menu due to food delivery issues. From what we were able to order, food was average at best. Much better pub food offerings in the area. More weatherspoons than gastro.
Booked table for 9.45, arrived early to find out kitchens were closed
we chose the Durrel arms for a sunday lunch based on the web pages.
When we arrived no one new of our booking, no one asked us if we wanted to eat there.
The place looked worn out and rather tatty and empty at 1.00 o'clock.
We had driven by the Durelle arms on the Saturday evening about 10.00pm and it was heaving with drinkers who all looked like they were enjoying themselves.
I would suggest this it is just a good old fashioned boozer and great fun if you are young.
Very accommodating manager. We were there to watch the football and rugby and ensured we had space to watch the rugby on a different screen.
No table was reserved. Staff and about 10 guests more interested in SA vs Aus than Premier League. I have been going to DA before and after every Fulham FC home game for 6 years. It used to be proper football pub. No longer the case. I wish them good luck, I'll be going elsewhere.
Great Sunday lunch and with£20 a bottle prosecco everyone's a winner! The service was impeccable (well until the guy serving us finished his shift, then it went downhill somewhat). Worth a visit - wish I lived nearer!
Great place to go and have a beer and enjoy the live music of a late evening. Fun atmosphere, however the food lets it down.
Customer service was excellent! Friendly and kind staff, amazing and tasty food. Had a great experience food came quick and everything was great! Will definitely be coming back and recommending to friends!!
Booked a table on open table for Saturday during the rugby to be told that the booking was not taken, why have the pub on open table if you do not accept bookings on Saturdays for the rugby. It means you are left with no place to go on short notice.
Not enough staff on a football day. No-one working behind the bar, so took over 30 mins to order food at the bar. They didn't have enough food. Eg no chicken wings (our reservation was at 1pm, how did they run out, or maybe they didn't prep any? ) we had a party of 6. There were only enough burgers for 3 people... disappointing as game days are always rammed. Wouldn't go back in a hurry.
Service non-existent and charge for it added to bill without consent. Still awaiting refund of the 12.5% charge even though promised it a week ago.
Really enjoyed myself.
The young blonde bartender she was very nice and remembered our 3 drinks we bought. Very pretty too.
I would happily leave a review on food and atmosphere but unfortunately I didn't have the pleasure to actually eat there. I booked a table for four and when I called 15 mins before the actual booking time to confirm we were going there the person who picked up the phone said not to bother to go as it was fully booked and she said she never received any reservation (even if i had the email). I asked for a bit later and she said no without even any attempt to help. Very very disappointing for a Sunday lunch with family.
Extremely accomodating staff, arrived nearly an hour late for table as we were stuck in traffic. General manager juggled some tables and got us booth table. Excellent attentive table service , food very good. Beer decent as well. 10/10 for service and making a decent night including a decent win for Fulham against the little team down the road in Hounslow .
We arrived and there was only one member of bar staff!....no table allocated and no chef!!...we stayed for 1 drink and left as still only 1 bar staff in attendance.....apparently all the staff had been out the night before and chose not to turn up!!!
They didn't have our booking as their system was down
There was now where near enough staff
Service and food was slow and poor
Really poor experience
Sunday roast was our best so far, we will go back and recommend it.
We turned up and it was closed for refurbishment. Nothing else to say!
