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 food was amazing! Only down side was how long it took to get our food but it was definitely worth the wait.

Bar staff not very friendly.
We had ridiculously long wait for our meals, without anyone letting us know what was happening.
It was a business dinner and hence rather embarrassing with such a long wait.

Lack of servers made this visit not nearly as pleasant as my first. Having to try to get service at our table throughout the evening was frustrating. Hopefully they will hire more wait staff for busy weekend dining.

On that Sunday the oven was not working. I eat only fish, no meat, nor chicken. They did it fry.
The best fish I ever tasted....

I’m disappointed I’ve waited so long to try the yellow house! The food was exceptional- generous portions, delicious taste and exceptional quality meat, all served by incredibly friendly, helpful staff. Don’t make the same mistake I did- go straight away!

The restaurant itself felt a little sparsely decorated and we felt the steaks were overpriced, but the staff here were lovely and the chef was keen to ensure we enjoyed our meal, which we did.

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.

Amazing food. Superb quality. Lovingly made. Service was slow and not as attentive as I would have expected. This however does not hinder the wonderful food and wine selection.

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.
