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.

Four of us needed a restaurant following an event at The Printworks. Not at all familiar with the area, The Yellow House is close by and had good reviews. Our meal there confirmed the good reviews are truly well desrved. Food was beautiful! And lovely service! Only sorry we don’t live close by, it would become a real favourite.

Delicious Sunday lunch, with all 5 of us choosing different starters, mains and desserts. All were freshly made, very tasty and faultless. Make sure you leave space for dessert!

I know the Yellow House for 6 years and it is always amazing. I am not often there due to the fact of living in a different country but a visit to London is not possible without having food here.

We visit this restaurant every time we are in London. The food is consistently excellent, thanks to the chef, Jaime Foa and his staff. We were greeted on arrival, and shown to our table quickly. Both Jaime and the manager, Robert, circulated among the tables, making sure things were going well, and just chatting. They always remember us too. The Yellow House is a special place!

Poor choice of vegan dishes, my friend ordered the asparagus asked that the source be on the side but it came with cheese all over the asparagus which wasn't stated on the menu. More choices for Vegans please. My fish dish was prefect.

Delicious food served with care and attention to detail. Squid was crunchy and yummy. The saddle of lamb was full of flavour and plentiful with a home made mint sauce just like my mother used to make! I finished off with banana and chocolate cheescake. All served by lovely friendly staff. and washed down with a smooth rich Shiraz.
What's not to like?

The Yellow House continues to deliver as our 'Local'. Relaxed atmosphere, consistent food, and the petit fours are always delicious (we usually argue if the fudge or chocolate truffles are nicer).

A real unexpected treat on a day when we needed to shop in Surrey Quays. Perfectly combination of relaxed and attentive service. The chef and waiting staff noticed my teenage kids were tucking into my Yorkshire pudding - and sent them ones of their own. Really lifted our spirits and the food was fab too. One steak perfectly cooked, one great pizza from the wood fired oven and one elegant lamb Sunday roast (with unusually good Yorkshire pudding).

We regularly have mostly dinner although we occasionally do Sunday Lunch at The Yellow house and we have never had a bad meal. The menu changes regularly and we have never been disappointed. It is also great value for money and the staff are just wonderful. Very welcoming and efficient. In all the time we have used the Yellow House the staff have hardly changed which speaks volumes for the management. All in all a little gem of a restaurant.

I have a medical condition which means that I can’t eat onions, garlic or leaks. It’s always a problem because so many things contain onion and garlic. But after explaining the situation The Yellow House came up with a superb meal with a sauce specially cooked for me. You can’t beat that kind of service. My friend also said that the beef bourguignonne was the best she had ever tasted.
