SquareMeal Review of
The Yellow House
A welcome sight for returning commuters, this modern European bar-restaurant, opposite Surrey Quays station, attracts multifarious locals with its friendly service & crowd-pleasing menu. The
airy, laid-back dining area contains an open kitchen complete with wood-burning oven where perfectly charred, thin-crust pizzas emerge (praised even by visiting Italians). The menu also runs to
char-grills of juicy burgers & steaks, along with fish from nearby Billingsgate. A weekly changing set menu lists more creative dishes such as Indian-spiced potato croquettes with coconut &
lentil dhal. Bread, cakes & sauces – even ketchup – are made on-site, & puddings, including exemplary ice creams, are a delight. There are plans for a bigger wine display in the cosy, retro
bar, along with wine-friendly nibbles.
