The Yellow House Bar and Kitchen in south London’s Surrey Quays near the shopping centre is a big, warm hug of a local bar and restaurant. The owner is on site and usually in the kitchen preparing one of three menus on offer: the restaurant menu, the grill menu and the pizza menu. The Yellow House had an earlier incarnation in Plough Way, but has moved to more intimate premises with a slick, post-Industrial vibe when it comes to décor, but still the same perfectionist’s attention to detail, relaxed ambience, warm welcome and passion about the food on the plate. Locals love this place. The Yellow House European cuisine offers dependable classics like grilled Scottish beef burger on ciabatta with hand-cut chips, thin-crust pizzas from the wood-fired pizza oven, and seared snapper with basil mash, minestrone and rouille. There’s a log-burning stove in the bar for wintry days and a great selection of wines and draught premium lagers.

I’ve had the creamy mushroom pasta before and it was a lot better then. The cheese on top was not even melted and the sauce just tasted like double cream.

A great local restaurant serving meals made freshly with good quality ingredients. Wood fired pizza oven produces great pizzas. Friendly and polite staff. Nice bar area to enjoy pre-dinner drinks.

This place is an absolute gem.

If you like amazing food and lovely staff you don't need to look any further...

Since we moved to Surrey Quays 4 years ago we have been to the yellow house so many times we have lost count. We have made a few friends along the way too.

I put the noise level as energetic but I think that was down to us and another couple we met on the night.

you must go here!

The roast beef was tough, potatoes were burnt and the whole plate was soaked with gravy which was too salty for me. The gravy should have been served separately. Bakewell tart was too sweet but the pastry was good. Cream sauce mushroom pasta was very tasty.

As usual, the Yellow House was lovely. We had an early sitting on a Saturday (7pm) and it was quiet (currently in Covid Tier 2, so you can only book a table for one household).
Great personal service and Jamie the chef always come to say hello.

We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. The music not to loud. The food so unique in taste....
The service was very good.
I used to visit the Yellow House from the very beginning when it was a small cafe in Plough Way.
Since then I was amazed with pizzas and their meringues....

We had a lovely meal here. I’ve only marked a 3 for ambience because the restaurant was empty sadly. This isn’t their fault though, as due to the current Covid situation, not a lot of people are going out to dine. I would love to return here. Service was great. Food was beautiful. They were very conscious about being safe and considerate without it feeling dis-attached. Thank you!

A local gem that never disappoints. Limited menu at the moment but no drop in quality. Everything cooked to perfection. If you like pizza there is enough choice for you. If you dont, the steaks are great. Whatever you do, leave space for dessert because the individual tiramisu has to be done!!

Delicious meal - we enjoyed 3 courses and some wine. The service is friendly, although it can be a bit slow when the restaurant is busy. But the food is excellent - great flavours, good without being too showy presentation, and filling. Make sure you leave room for dessert....!

A pleasant, friendly neighbourhood restaurant with something for everyone - pizzas, pasta dishes, steaks and a few specials and veggie dishes. Mains were especially good and very freshly prepared. Prices are reasonable and service is good so we recommend it.
