Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

As a frequent but irregular diner I have always found the food and service excellent. The dessert of the day is always worth trying.

Heading to see Macbeth at Dock X, booked this delightful restaurant online. Arrived early and we were concerned that shutters were down but just before 5:25 they opened up and we were invited in. 6 of us were served, ate and parted in plenty of time for the show. Very friendly welcome from all the team. Good menu with plenty of choice and the food was excellent as was the service. Took "doggy bags" of fudge out at the end to enjoy at the theatre. We will definitely visit again and I thoroughly recommend the Yellow House, thank you for a lovely experience.

We booked this restaurant for our works Christmas party. Well it was awful, where do I start. Waiters need to brush up on their social skills. Food was presented poorly. Waiters never once asked how our food was or if we needed anything. No atmosphere seeing as it was Christmas. We asked if we could have crackers on the table which they gave us but was shocked to have been charged for them. A very dissatisfied evening.

I absolutely love everything about this place: its food, its staff, the ambience. One of the very best places to eat in London. They always have vegan options. They treat customers so well - you really feel welcomed and appreciated, nothing is too much trouble for them. I recommend their pasta with nduja, their French onion soup, fillet of bream with leeks risotto and their pastries and desserts, particularly their fudge and profiteroles :)

Another wonderful Sunday lunch at the yellow house. Delicious food, expertly cooked and convivial atmosphere. The puddings are always fabulous! Thank you so much Robert and Jamie for making our group of twelve diners last Sunday so happy.

I booked a Christmas dinner for my mother and I as a treat for my mother who rarely gets out. At a pop of £90 per person I was expecting the meal to at least be of a certain quality and standard, but unfortunately it was not. When we arrived despite having booked this over a month in advance they didn't have our table ready and was told to sit down somewhere and wasn't even offered a drinks menu. When we finally sat at our table we both noticed some things that I know are not satisfactory on a hygine level. The Yorkshire puddings were just dumped next to us out in the open in a box and I saw the desert just sat out I'm the open next to people sneezing and coughing, when I saw the chef dishing this up for people he was just using his hands, which didn't seem to be clean and putting it onto a plate. He could have at least used a utensil to pick it up with (yuck). The starter came and it wasn't great, just a lot of avocado dumped onto a soggy base of corn fritter. Then the roast dinner was the ultimate disappointment, I wish I had taken a photo. We ordered the beef, we asked for one well done and the other medium well. On our plates were a sort of beef steak just dumped in the middle of the plate and my mum's well-done piece was as tough as an old show and my medium piece was also really tough and chewy, despite it being pink. We barely ate any of it, can you imagine this is supposed to be a wonderful occasion (Christmas Day) which was ruined by this experience. When we asked to speak to the manager he was very defensive telling us nobody has ever complained about the beef before (which I fail to believe) and that it's Scottish beef. As someone who eats out a lot and is used to fine dining and nice restaurants, this was not the one. He wasn't apologetic at all, just felt very accusatory and unwilling to understand the issue even though he could see how bad it looked, but perhaps that's what he is used to. I paid a £100 despoit for the meal and then they charged us £65 with the discount added. Can you imagine!!!! £165 for the worse meal ever and he acted like he was doing us a service by making it seem like he had added a 50% discount. As a business owner myself, and someone who has a lot of local clients, I will be speaking about this experience to a lot of people. Utterly disappointing!!!

We are here as a party of 10 (including 3 small children). Children’s menu not huge (soup, pizza, pasta) but good quality and value. Food was brought quickly, all together and was hot when brought to the table - unlike some places who do none of these things. Steak was correctly cooked to order and tasty. Some good wines in the £20-£30 range although something under £20 would have been nice.

Friday fish was mushy, my fault ordering as expected a once a week dish to be a good one. Chips, very large cuts and portions bigger than the mushy fish batter. Penne arabica was mushy overcooked and came out steaming so kept on cooking to more overcooked-ness. The sauce was strange and not spicy and had sugar or a sweetener in it, not Italian. We looked at the menu before going to our new neighbourhood restaurant, we thought with a good list of pizza and pasta it must be good. The staff were nice, good service but the food was quite awful. A couple in another corner table had a hit or two of pot inside, mentioned they came off a plane and did not need to quarentine as an extra ambiance to the evening.

Absolutely delicious food – from hand-crafted freshly-prepared pizza («Four Seasons» is my favourite) to perfectly cooked lamb. Plus, an excellent selection of wines (I highly recommend «Mâcon-Villages Domaine Chêne» white). Not to mention fresh bread and desserts! My family and friends have been eating out and ordering with The Yellow House for quite a few years now and always happy with the quality of ingredients (great to see chef sourcing fresh local produce from the nearby market) and service (their team is very friendly, enthusiastic and honest). Thank you Jaime, Robert and the team! 👋🏻

Just came in here as it's a ten minute walk from my flat and me and a friend wanted a quick celebration dinner. Inside it's a bit strange looking, somewhat unfinished early noughties feeling out the back, but you can see the pizza oven and the chefs prepping food which is always nice. The drinks menu is pretty reasonably priced - cocktails for about nine quid, glass of prosecco for £5.50, decent beers on tap. But the real draw is the food. It is so so so good. We had the chicken livers and the arancini, both delicious (the rosti the livers were on was to die for) then a sirloin steak (perfectly cooked) and the lamb (beautifully medium rare). I had the best carrot I've ever had in my life at the Yellow House which is not an accolade I saw myself giving out well into adulthood. We finished it off with brownies. Sadly, these were not warm, which was a shame as it made them a bit claggy, especially with the super thick and creamy cornish-style ice cream. That said, they were still really tasty, but could have benefitted from being warmed up and gooey rather than fridge cold and dense. Service was friendly enough and pretty understated – there was someone there when we needed them but not much chit chat. Their covid measures also looked effective, and the playlist they had on was great. All round, maybe not a location for a super posh dinner out as it all feels very understated, but if you just want some of the best pub food in south London for a nice evening out with pals, The yellow house is absolutely ideal, highly recommend. Thanks all!
