KNOCK KNOCK!!!

We’d love to have you over but unfortunately The Little Yellow Door’s pop-up lease has run-out and we’ve had to move!

Everyone has to move sometimes - But A New Door must be painted Yellow and the craziness must continue!

If you would like to join us in the new flat for more Living Room Fun from ***WEDNESDAY 5th APRIL*** onwards, ping us an email at justknock@thelittleyellowdoor.co.uk or whats-app us on +447801267854.

Looking for something a tad more tucked away? Be sure to check out their top notch private Tree House room. Perfect for groups up to 12, boasting informal seating and a secluded hideaway, this space is equipped with sports memorabilia,board games and many other tree house musts.

We went to TLYD tonight and it was heaving,great music and people cool, but really REALLY cramped, at one point a girl beside us had to be helped outside because of the stuffiness, however in saying that the place is uber cool, just wish there was more space. deebw visited The Little Yellow Door on 21 Jan 2017

We went for the boozy afternoon tea and it did not disappoint - the tea infused cocktail served up in a huge teapot was quite generously laced! We sat inside the tree house room and the general atmosphere was very cozy - charming without being too commercialised.

I've been there 2 times, once for a girls night and another for my BF's birthday and both times it was one of the best nights of my life! It feels like your best friend's house party with any of the guilt of not helping out that next day. I've tried the food there and its yummy and cheap. The drinks are a little on the pricey side but that's Notting Hill and I think totally worth it. paradoxgyrrl visited The Little Yellow Door on 15 Oct 2016

Birthday dinner party on Friday 4th November for ten girls - in high spirits, desperate to escape the bloody cold & raise many a glass of prosecco. And there is no better place for a combination of quirky venue, good food, great atmosphere & even better cocktails. Whether you go to The Little Yellow Door for dinner, drinks or just to dance, you're guaranteed a good evening - the housemates couldn't be more accommodating & I've yet to have a drink that didn't slip down almost too easily. Crack babies all round. My only fear is it's going to become too popular - so actually, don't go. It's terrible.

Definitely worth a visit!!! We came for after work drinks and a bite to eat. The Emoji menu was fun and the food is really good! Loved the house cocktail! We were lucky enough to be sat in the treehouse, perfect for a catch up with friends as its a little bit more secluded. We had Mike looking after us, who really pushed the boat out. Thanks Mike! It was a really good night and I would recommend it to everyone! jvrazzell visited The Little Yellow Door on 11 Aug 2016

Fantastic hosting and probably the best steak sandwich I've ever had! Loved the emoji menu - adds a whole-nother level of fun to the evening. Such great food and cocktails for value.

I celebrated my 30th birthday here last Saturday with 25+ people and we had a really good time! The bar wait was quite long each time for drinks, but we had the Tree House with pitchers of cocktails - so that was nice! (although a bit hot inside) All the guests left happy - will try and come soon again for a smaller occasion. Thanks! eozencimagini visited The Little Yellow Door on 14 May 2016

I had my birthday drinks here and it's so much fun! It was an easy going place and the music was fun and random just like a house party minus the cleaning up afterwards! The staff were super accommodating and helpful - thanks for making my birthday an awesome one! Will definitely return. visited The Little Yellow Door on 23 Apr 2016

We had our engagement drinks here last Friday and we could not have chosen a better venue- the perfect mix of cool yet unpretentious and chilled but great fun. Loved the music! Food and cocktails were great, as were the staff. Perfectly located for those coming after work! 100% recommend and will certainly be back!

Celebrated my engagement drinks at little yellow door. It was the perfect location, easily accessible, and beautifully decorated inside. The staff were fantastic, and very hospitable before during and after the evening. The food platters were delicious and very diverse. The music was well varied to accommodate all tastes, and overall it was the perfect evening. Would definitely recommend Little Yellow Door to anyone whether it's a chilled out drink/meal or a larger party. Thanks again guys, look forward to visiting again soon!

Celebrated my partner's birthday here-was PERFECT. We were 25 guests, reservation process was very friendly (done via what's app). Staff was extremely friendly: security(Aaron) and waitress (Tess) were top class. Bar team was impressive with GREAT cocktails that were delivered in a blink of an eye. Atmosphere was really relaxed and fun! alexistrebucq visited The Little Yellow Door on 27 Feb 2016

Great pop up house party offering something a bit different. Fun opportunity to meet other people. Food was great but it's a shame the bar staff weren't as friendly as the rest of the staff. Francesca visited The Little Yellow Door on 19 Feb 2016

We had a lovely night but after paying for a four course meal we only received three of the courses. Wouldn't have been so bad had they not sent us the menu before - we missed out on an Oreo bourbon milkshake! So we were a bit dissapointed with the event.

Reply from The Little Yellow Door

hey. thanks for your feedback, but we're a little confused! Dessert was brught out on friday and dotted around on the coffee tables, did you miss that entirely? What a shame, and apologies if you did. Seems like the rest of your evening went well and the food was good? seems a little harsh to get a 2* because of the milkshake!

Had been meaning to come here ever since it opened having heard such great things about the food, drinks and relaxed atmosphere. I was certainly not disappointed on all counts. Arriving at the understated little yellow door the awesome doorman in the bowler hat showed us up the staircase to the 'flat'. Decorated with an eclectic mix of bizarre objects the cozy flat offers a house party experience for the public - something that you won't find anywhere else in London. We were served a superb dinner served at one long table. We started off with a delicious tropical house punch followed by a range of starters which were of Michelin standard. These were followed by one of the best beef pies I've ever tasted - ox cheeks which literally melted. Topped off with a delicious desert and shots on the house after a random poetry recital this place has something unique if you are looking for something slightly different to do with your evening. A superb cocktail menu keeps you partying until late with drinks such as 'Rum Diaries' (a beautifully flavoured and strong mojito topped with Prosecco) or 'Coffee & Cigarettes' (an espresso martini with a real cigarette on the side). Make sure you get down there soon!

This is the third time I come to the The little yellow door and the third time I have a great night. Great cocktails (2for1 before 8pm last Thursday), food is really tasty and the staff make you feel at home. What else can you ask for? magali visited The Little Yellow Door on 14 Jan 2016

the hosts were incredibly helpful and accommodating with the booking so I had great expectations for the evening. It was a cute "flat" but I found the dining arrangements slightly random and the food average. Very friendly team and bar though Debra visited The Little Yellow Door on 08 Jan 2016

5 Stars! We had our work Christmas Party & it is very hard to please everyone - different ages & drinking ability. We had a fab time, absolutely amazing cocktails which they obviously take pride in making to perfection. GREAT food - it didn't stop coming and was delicious. Its very laid back vibes helped us relax and enjoy the evening. Thank you.

Always a brilliant night, the food was amazing, the atmosphere never disappoints and the drinks are second to none. Although not a first visit for myself personally, we took our office team out for a leaving party on a Friday night and every single person had an absolute blast. The 'Treehouse' area is the best spot (super cosy) to play some board games and at the same time be part of the great house-party vibe. Highly recommended.

I was really impressed with the food, but it's an absolute rip off on drinks. The barman asked what kind of drinks we liked and brought three over - never once mentioned the price and we didn't think to ask. Then at the end of the night it turns out they're £10 each PLUS a table charge so our relatively cheap night turned out not to be! Also I sent several messages about wanting to reserve a space after dinner for us to drink, but these were ignored and after dinner we were shooed out of any kind of seating and told we had to stand in the corner as it was all booked out by someone who hadn't turned up yet. As we were made to feel so unwelcome we left. Probably not going to go back if i'm honest. Two stars for the food because it was great, but a let down in terms of service and the fact there were no fun games or 'house party antics' as advertised.

Really cool place 30 seconds from Notting Hill Gate station. they were fairly on it when i was booking for my birthday, and though i do understand that they need to secure bookings as its a small venue, taking card details incase i didn't turn up -with the potential to be charged per head- was a bit of a put off for me. nevertheless i turned up and all was well, all my guests really enjoyed the place and they had reserved us a good sized area, we had our own waiter which was nice who was super friendly and had great banter with us all. again having to have a card on tab even though everyone was paying for their own (over priced drinks, but we'll come to that in a bit) drinks etc was again a bit off putting. Just doesnt seem necessary. we ended up hanging mainly in the tree house which had been reserved for me which everyone loved, super chilled cosy area where you can really feel like you have your own private party. Only down side was that most of my group would be gone for 30 minutes at a time -even though it wasn't that busy- waiting for the bar staff to serve them. either make the bar area bigger or get more bar staff. the wait was a topic of conversation all night. All in all, a really enjoyable evening, everyone in my group commented how cool they thought the place was and everyone there was really friendly. Id highly recommend for a small group for a chilled evening, not really suitable for dancing and not cheap by any stretch of the imagination, but everyone seemed to enjoy their drinks nevertheless. Will go again!

Booked 2 spots the same evening, so bit short notice but received a confirmation email nevertheless. On arriving the doorman said we weren't on his list (classic) and let us in only because 2 guests were leaving just then. This drags down my review considerably since this sort of behaviour belongs somewhere far inside someone's backside. Get an iPad bro, keep your list up to date. The place itself was steaming busy and had a pretty good vibe, tasty cocktails. funky interior and nice staff. Will I be back? Maybe if I dare taking the risk of not being let in (and honestly I'm too old for that sort of bs). drinkbord visited The Little Yellow Door on 19 Sep 2015

Very disappointing experience at The Little Yellow Door. Firstly, the place was ridiculously overcrowded and there was in no way enough room to seat all the diners comfortably. I ended up squished in against the wall, where I had to firmly remain throughout the dinner as it was simply far too much hassle for both myself and those around me, who would all have to get up themselves, for me to get up. On the plus, it could have been worse as I could have been sat on the other side of the table/bench and been consistently barged by people trying to make their way through the almost non-existent gap between tables. On top of that, the food really wasn't great either and certainly not worth the price paid. After dinner the tables were taken out of the room, leaving a few seating areas dotted around the venue. Myself and my friends tried to sit in a number of these areas, only to be told to move as they had all been reserved by groups of (dare I say, rather pretentious) people coming in post-dinner. All in all, despite sounding like a great concept, I found the execution to be very poor and I certainly wouldn't recommend The Little Yellow Door to others.

The cocktails were really really tasty and i personally found them the same price as any other bar in London. The food was some of the best I've tasted for ages, quite literally!! The whole vibe was great and everyone was having a blast! The best thing about it though was the interior...god i wish my flat looked like that!

Very overpriced for terrible cocktails, honestly such a shame as they used to be quite good. The bartender actually managed to curdle a cocktail on their own menu, then shouted us out the door when we complained. AVOID

Very over priced. Tiny amount of food to share between 5/6, the drinks are £10+ and you have to stand up for desert! It basically becomes a bar after you finish your second course, so it definitely doesnt feel like a house party. Its definitely not somewhere i'd recommend with some many amazing popup bars in London.

Pretty cool little venue on the heart of Notting Hill. Its exactly as you would imagine your flat party!! Start with a few drinks in the living room, playing board games, etc, then dig into some delicious/quirky food being served as if it came from your own fridges. AND THEN before you know it, everyone found out about your flat party and its rammed!!! Great evening but luckily you not left with the cleaning!! Highly recommend this one and will definitely be back soon!!

Went with a group of friends, the atmosphere seems lively if only the staff were not as pretentious, I wouldn't make this my main venue for the night. Unlikely to return.

Not sure about the food, as we didn't eat but the cocktails are probably the lowest quality in the area, the bartender put at least 2 tea spoons of sugar in each drink which didn't dissolve, a cocktail which contained egg was not shaken properly and curdled. When we complained the staff were incredibly rude and said that 'if you don't like in then leave' Do NOT try to complain at this place, much better places in Notting Hill...this is not one.

Great idea and we were really excited but were very disappointed. Went on Saturday night and were there from 8pm onwards. The place never got that busy and the atmosphere was dry. No dancing was happing just lots of standing around and talking. The drinks were some of the most expensive I've come across and had we not been so far out of the city we would have left and headed elsewhere. We won't be coming back or recommending the place to anyone. A lovely idea just poorly executed.

Admin fee??? These really get on my nerves. What is the point in stating a price only to slap on additional (seemingly pointless) admin charges thereafter. If the price is £38 then state it clearly upfront. Unless I am missing something there is no other way to book? What are you administrating anyway? An automated online system where I have the privilege of printing my own ticket. Great thanks.

The "flatmates" must be writing these reviews themselves because the reviews are misleading. This place is AWFUL. A good concept but no execution on the night. Disorganised, bad food, bad service, poor decor, bad music. Don't go.

It was the coolest place we could have ever went, wicked decor, nice local vibe- not too trendy for its own good while at the same time cool, edgy, a bit rocknroll and a total breath of fresh air. Loved it and we'll be back.

Went there for drinks for the second time on a Saturday night. It was crowded but we had booked a table/area and a girl from the staff kindly found a place for us to sit down. Nice, cosy atmosphere and great for a relaxed night with friends.

Snob balls crowd (though nice staff), weird (bad) music (think Nickelback/similar 90's bands), didn't feel like dinner and drinks in your friend's flat - more like some weird and pretentious venue where Notting Hill crowd goes to feel "artsy." Would not recommend.

I would recommend The Little Yellow Door to anyone! Walking in to the authentic bar situated in the middle of Notting Hill is a total treat. It immediately engulfs you in to the flat mates quirky sitting room, where even the tiniest details, from the cocktails in cafetieres and the ironing board in the corner reminds me of typical house parties, it all looks amazing. There was such a fun mix of people, the food was so delicious and the staff were great!

Attended their Friday dinner with about 20 guests for my 30th in January and had a great time. Everyone was so helpful in the up to and on the day itself. Would highly recommend this as a venue as it's quirky, cool but laid back too. Only thing I'd suggest would be improving the veggie option on the menu as I had a few complaints. Also I'd suggest if you're intending to stick around after dinner as we did, it's a good idea to book a table, if you don't there's absolutely nowhere to sit and it can get quite crowded. Thanks to everyone at the little yellow door!
