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.

The Yellow House continues to be a hidden gem in Bermondsey/Rotherhithe. The food is excellent, the staff are wonderful and the cocktail list is great too! I moved away from the area a year ago and travel up from Kent about once a month to meet up with friends and enjoy a fabulous meal there. I would happily sit in the bar and wait for my friends to arrive - it's comfortable and welcoming.

Have been to the surrey quays on numerous occasions and tried most of the eating places in the area. for some reason the outside of this place never attracted me in - what a fool I was not to try it earlier.
All home made food - tomato ketchup and horseradish on the side to die for. We ate on two consecutive days and would have gone the following day if they weren't closing for their summer break. Everything we ate was cooked to perfection and top quality.
Can't wait to visit again when we are next in the area

We were desperate for a pizza after the cinema and they didn't disappoint. As always, we managed to eat the whole thing and somehow (god knows how) managed to get through a brownie and chocolate truffle. It's brilliant to have such a great place nearby.

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.

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).
