Small portions for food and very expensive (specially the starters and sides)
My friend got an vegetarian burger and the mushroom was with a dodgy taste.
Music was good and the waiter really kind and nice. The service was exceptional

Absolutely empty at 2pm on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Ordered 2 roasts; pork and beef with a pint and sparkling water. £44. The roasts were very poor, the 2 slices of beef were as thick as bacon, the gravy watery and the 3 potatoes over cooked and dry.
Service was excellent, staff very friendly.
They need to up their game if they want it to be busier.

Nice booths and service was good but roast dinner wasn’t really worth the money, would go again but try a different meal.

Hi AnneMarie I was disappointed to see your review. You didn't leave much detail though. Would you mind sending me a bit more information so that I can use this constructively?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
