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.

Unlike other restaurant options in Surrey Quays / Canada Water, The Yellow House is unpretentious, offering fantastic food in relaxed and stylish surroundings. Everything is made by them, down to the bread, and both the bistro and pizza menus offer tempting choices. Strongly recommended!

Always constantly good. The ambience is warm, friendly and low-key. The perfect place for couples, friends or a family dinner, without the volume or crass clientele of local venues. Pizzas are off the scale delicious.
Please try it, it’s a local gem.

Another great meal at The Yellow House. As rather unusually there were no main courses that particularly appealed on the night all four of us opted for pizzas were as excellent as always. Great size and with top quality and abundant toppings, I've not had a better pizza anywhere other than at Rosso Pomodoro. Washed down with bottles of the equally excellent and well priced Garnacha we had a very enjoyable evening and will definitely be back for more.

Service, food and wine/drink offerings are always impeccable here. Relaxed, yet professional. Have eaten here at least a few dozen times and have never been disappointed. Dishes change regularly, as availability and seasons change, so there is always something new to try. Have never been disappointed.

As a a Rotherhithe and South London resident- the Yellow House is a regular haunt for us -for all occasions. The staff are very friendly and we like to support them not just because they are local but the food is very good- I can probably best describe as comfort food . They do also some special events which i can highly recommend- such as wine tastings, jazz evenings and so forth. We will continue to come back regularly.

We had a lovely Christmas Day meal, perfectly cooked and served. Most pleased. My only wish was that there could have been a little more ambiance; a little live music, a conjurer, a quick Father Christmas visit. It was just missing a Christmas 'something'. but we were very happy.

The quality of the ingredients is always good at this restaurant. They still serve bread as a matter of course, which is something I miss when I go to other restaurants. The added bonus being that the bread is baked by the chef and is very tasty. I am a vegetarian and love their Lentil cake. It is moist inside and crispy outside. Vegetables are always cooked well and the deserts are fantastic. The trouble is I am often too full to eat them. I get round that by popping in every now and then and just having desert and coffee! There is a bar area which is quite funky and a good place to hang out.

I am a regular there and I love it every time. The staff is super attentive and they care. I usually come with my dog and they reserve me an area in the front so I can bring her along. Last time I went, I didn’t call to say whether or not I bring my dog. They held two tables for me, one inside the restaurant and one by the bar where dogs are allowed. That’s going the extra mile!

Friendly and relaxed. Great menu choice and the mains were delicious and different. Good wine selection with some intersting specials. We were disappointed by the desserts which didn’t live up to the mains. A creme brulee was unremarkable and 2 of us had the apple crumble which came cold, as was meant to be. Never had cold crumble in my life. We asked for it to be warmed up and well, it must have had 10 seconds in the micro. Not warm at all. Also the crumble was very crumble free - more like an open apple tart with a dusting of crumbs. Our waitress was friendly but rather absent minded and didn’t prioritise things like when we had to wait ages for our opening drinks because “the bar was busy”. I’d go back but would go for startes and mains and avoid the desserts.
