The food was quite good although a little expensive. The service was excellent. The restaurant is very nice inside.

This place has become our favorite in the area. The ovenbaked pizzas are excellent and they have a great choice of wine (our favourite is the "Vierkoppen" a cabarnet sauvignon from South Africa). The staff is super friendly and if you are happy to wait for a bit the bar, than you usually can find a place on Friday evening... More

Wow! Having never been to Surrey Quays before, I used TripAdvisor to find somewhere nice to meet a friend for a bite to eat as she was staying in the area. I was not disappointed so thanks to all the previous reviewers. The food was amazing, very simple but very well cooked. I had the chicken breast and it was... More

I had a meal there with friends 2-3 times. All plates well cooked with very good ingredients and nice appearance. The owner was super friendly and very helpful in giving advise about which food to choose and which drinks match our selection. Overall, really pleasant experience and very good to see independent restaurants like these do well in London.

My husband and I nipped into The Yellow House for a quick bite to eat after shopping. The pizzas are amazing! They took just slightly longer to make but we weren't fussed. However before we even noticed, the chef came out and apologised. They were so worth the wait. Our waitress was brilliant too and when she came to our... More

We used to visit the Yellow House years ago when it was at a different location. It was great, after about 12 years, to rediscover this little gem and to find the same friendly host. The menu not only comprises excellent pizzas but a full range of dishes to suit most pockets. The atmosphere is relaxed, yet the service is... More

A nice bottle of red with 3 pizzas on a crazy, windy Thursday. Perfect combination. The pizzas were yummy. I had the Jerusalem artichoke and wild mushroom pie. A tiny lit lemony but still delish. My friends had the buffalo mozzarella pie (very good) and English salami (good). Pizzas were a little slow coming out of the small, wood-fired stove.... More
