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.

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.

Very average! Seemed overwhelmed by the number of customers despite it not being that busy. Menu is expensive for what it is, and had to return 2 of the dishes for being cold (one still being frozen in the middle).

Before lockdown I would visit this restaurant at least 3-4 times a month and I absolutely love it. I visited the restaurant on Monday and due the the eat out help out deal the restaurant was very busy , although I appreciate the restaurant need Busniess in these difficult times I believe the restaurant was very slack with Covid Secure measures. what I saw was that the restaurant had filled every table and distances between people was not as the government guidance, nobody takes your temperature when you enter ,details are only asked for if you want to give them , the staff only had face masks on not face shields, the potential for an out brake of the virus there is immense, the whole experience made me feel very uncomfortable and as soon as I finished my main course I left. I will not be visiting this restaurant again until I see stronger control measures put in place as I have seen in other restaurants.

Oh I have missed the pasta! It was heaven and I kid you not my body did a little dance internally.

Welcome back Yellow House! You are all working so hard with such high demand to provide a sense of normality for us all eating out in this #newnormal

Keeping us as safe as possible with Covid restrictions, yet trying to give us a taste of the wonderful service and dining experience we all have grown to love about you all I always smile at the dynamics energy and sort of unique homely yet high end service. There is something to be said about the #yellowhouse ambience .. you feel comfortable and safe!

Thank you Robert Jamie James Solomon Sam Marioush and Ellie #teamyellowhouse 💛 your diligence and warmth does not go unnoticed on behalf of many in SE16 and surrounding we appreciate you ALL X

The Yellow House is an exceptional restaurant. The food, especially the fresh pasta and the steak, is top notch, as is the wine list and, for it's location, it's very affordable...which is refreshing. Portion sizes are decent, ingredients are fresh and locally-sourced and the attention to detail is really very special (we received some delicious home-made fudge with the bill).

Robert and the team provided fantastic service throughout our meal and offered to move us to a quieter spot, away from a larger group of people. It was very thoughtful of them.

I would highly recommend this restaurant, it's quite a gem.

Service shockingly bad. Was seated and then left with no service. Had to get our own drinks. Bar staff rude and slow. Was there an hour and half before we could even get attention to order food. Maybe I didn't have the correct ditsy floral dress on but it certainly wasn't overflowing with people. Very over priced for service received.

Great to be going back out with friends and to do that in The Yellow House with their dependable high quality of food, service and, well everything, is just perfect. If you haven't been yet you are missing out. The double menu of a la carte dining plus great pizzas and delightful desserts is a must. Great wine selection too. Big thumbs up.

Yellow House is simply good for the soul. This establishment has been sorely missed over past 5 months. They have served us and adapted via delivery and I salute the team.

Confession .. I ate there twice this week as we came with friends on second visit as the #eatout2helpout scheme made it a double win. To tell you that their attitude is to simply give the best experience; best quality food, wine and ambience whilst in an effortless way or sometimes it is a joy to just watch the bustle and eNergy and that was pre lockdown.
There is a special air in the #yellowhouse the chefs; the aromas of delicious produce being cooked in front of you; the hospitality of James be it at the bar or serving you is just one of a high end establishment with a relaxed edge. They care about what they do within these yellow walls and they care about your dining experience developing relationships with all whom visit.
I kid you not, to sit and dine this week was my highlight and all diners wanted to celebrate them for reopening their doors. Support yellow house the way they support you, it is nostalgic if you have missed them and if you have not experienced their pizzas or steak you have not lived .. for I tell you their food and company is authentic ‘comfort food’ and is genuinely good for the Surrey quays soul. Friends travelled from South Kensington to dine here this week and were in awe. It is silly lol how good it is and I question do the owners or team really know they are 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The food bangs hard; the humble company team bangs harder and the prices don’t bang you!

Can I take this opportunity on behalf of many to thank you all team Yellow House especially Robert & Jamie who have created an award winning establishment kept the fabric of what they do best at the heart of what they do the within the community they live in #serve soulfood with a dash of #yellow #love 💛 x

Wonderful local restaurant where the owner gets stuck in both in the kitchen and front of house. Amazing food, excellent service. So lucky to have this right on my doorstep. They were brilliant letting us hold our table in spite of being 45 mins late.
