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.

Stellar food and service, as usual. I’ve eaten here dozens of times and can honestly say I’ve never had a poor or even ‘just fair’ meal. Each meal, drink and interaction with staff has been so pleasurable. Such a hidden treasure - definitely worth a trip if it’s not in your neighborhood.

The venison was amazing! Filled up the delicious bread a bit quick and couldn’t finish our meal so took some home for leftovers. Made the perfect lunch the next day!

I truly enjoy their lovely dishes and always knew recipe representations with a such delicatessen.

The owners both very welcoming, kind and nice in details...

The rose wine a sparkling refreshment.

Truly, my children and I always enjoy dinner and lunch at The Yellow House.

We love the Yellow House- it’s our local go to for anything from a celebration to ‘don’t feel like cooking this evening’. Food is always tasty, service friendly and the atmosphere good. Jaime and Robert take special care to welcome their regulars and have a bit of a joke, which is lovely. The choux bun with praline and cob nuts was absolutely divine!!

Good overall, so just pointing out what could have been better:
- service a bit too slow
- aperol spritz at £7.50 is very overpriced, especially considering the small size serving and little alcohol in it.

The food at the Yellow House is very good - quality ingredients, well presented and tasty, and good sized portions. The cocktail ingredients were not as high calibre but the wine list more than made up for it! Having all had steaks, we’ll definitely be back to sample more items from the menu including pizzas from the wood fires oven!

We have been customers of the Yellow House fora number of years. Didn’t really use during lockdown for takeaway as we live too far away. Delighted they survived and glad they are functioning again. The first restaurant we have been to since lockdown ended. Feel safe as they are following all Covid-19 rules. Fabulous pizzas and although they have a smaller menu still more than enough to choose from.

A sense that things are a little caught on the hop in my experience of about 9 bookings over 6 years. Food always good to very good, always friendly service and informal is always the way of it. Maybe the hint of background panic is part of the ambience. Would recommend you give it a try. A definite unique experience. I don't go out much but it's always my first thought when I do. Always seems to me that other customers enjoy themselves as well, and never seen a problem for anyone.

It’s always a good time at the yellow house. We live locally so probably go a couple of times a month. There’s always a friendly welcome, great service and tasty food. Each time we go we notice that there’s been a change to the menu, meaning there’s variety each time and the menu is nicely in sync with the seasons. Have no hesitation at all in recommending this place- it’s a gem!

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.

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!
