Sunday Lunch
Casual
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.

At The Yellow House it has become our favorite restaurants in London to go to. The atmosphere feels like home, the ever changing menu makes us smile as we salivate, the wonderful staff have unique personalities, and the service keeps on bringing us back.

The other surprise besides their main courses that include sea food and beef, pork, and chicken are the pizza menu and their delicious deserts. All I can say is yummie yummie yummie.

Whenever we want a great meal and a pleasant experience to remember with our family or my partner I eventually choose The Yellow House.

Unfortunately for myself I didnt enjoy visiting the Yellow House this time around. I have been before and had a lovely meal but prices have escalated slightly drinks even which made the evening quite expensive. Food was ok the dessert was to say a mistake a cookie which was hard and a small scoop of ice cream really for over five pounds. When we finally got our bill they had the cheek to charge us a service charge of 19.99 which I asked to be taken off .. so not a great ending shame really I use to love the Yellow House.

A wonderful discovery after looking for a restaurant near the double tree by Hilton . Great menu and everything was so tasty. The staff were all so nice especially the young guy who helped out with finding an Uber due to the pouring rain and lack of connectivity on our mobiles- thank you for caring.
We will be back on our next visit.

We visit the Yellow House several times a year and are always very happy with the food and service. The menu offers a lot of choices so sometimes we find it difficult to choose but whatever we decide upon we have never been disappointed. Last time we took our family who liked it very much too.

The restaurant was packed and so service was slow which isn't ideal but understandable. However our waitress was not helpful she didn't know the menu and when asked question needed to be pushed to find out the answer.
Food was also overly salty

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....

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!
