The Ultimate Dinner Party

"With top-notch food, killer drinks, silly games and free roam of the flat this is the ultimate party — and everyone is invited"

The Evening Standard

In the heart of Notting Hill, the flatmates of The Little Yellow Door welcome you to their weekly dinner party. It’s Friday, the weekend beckons and we can’t wait to celebrate with a few cocktails, some great food and our legendary Friday after-party.

Knock on our yellow door, make your way up to our secret flat and be ready to be surprised. Firstly, by our hidden dining venue, a unique transformation of our quirky and intimate living room, then, by a wacky and wild time fuelled by intricate cuisine and house cocktails. Along with some dinner party games and a great crowd of regulars, you’ll come with three friends and leave with 10...It’s the ultimate dinner party.

"Sorry all London pop-up bars, you can now go home as we don’t think you’d be able to top The Little Yellow Door" //

The food is always determined by the culinary quirks of our latest flatmate. Currently on offer is our take on American classes in honour of our newest friend and dinner party host, Hank (first name only!). (Note new flatmate expected early November)

Dinner finishes at 9:30pm as we transform the dining room for the after party which is always sure to follow our dinners. Be warned, there is a bit of moving and shifting but complimentary digestifs will be served for those that chip in and make the room ready for the party.

"Imagine living with your five coolest friends. Even better, they’re chefs, mixologists and aficionados of debauchery. To top it all off, they throw decadent parties every weekend and never ask you to deal with the mess, neighbours or gatecrashers.

"This blissful fantasy is now a reality." /



The menu revolves depending on the origins of our latest flatmate AND thus changes seasonally.

Current flatmate: Pierre, from France - C'est fantastique! A touch of Parisian Bistro has swept the Little Yellow Door's kitchen for a delicious new menu takeover!

**This bar and restaurant concept is based around the uniquely London experience of living in a flat share. Blending high end pop-up fun with a dressed down atmosphere, this is the latest project from the brains behind The Wandering Chef, Roxx and Press Play**

I'm not usually a fussy diner but a few disappointing moments here. The starter sharing platter which was a salad and one pork disc was too small to share between 7 people! Drinks were expensive and you could find a better quality sauvignon blanc in Lidl than here, which was £9! We couldn't drink it. The punch which was still being served after the dinner was kept in a lovely round open bowl at the bar which people could lean/talk over, not sure if this was the best place for it. we went for the wine pairing option, 3 glasses of wine plus one mystery drink at the end which were quite nice however we had to remind them we were still missing our drinks. Apart from these points the concept was there, we danced our socks off, a lively and entertaining bunch just needs tweeking a bit. Visited TLYD OLD SITE on 2017-01-13

Excellent! Highly recommended! Great staff, awesome food (so much!) and fun time! It did seem rather complicated organising for my party to each buy tickets and then be seated together, but overall a fantastic experience. Will be there for the next menu but...psssttt... keep the LYD a secret! Its too good to spoil ;) My fave! Visited TLYD OLD SITE on 2016-12-30

Went to LYD for a work party, had an amazing night. Really great food, fun surroundings and a DJ that got us all dancing on the tables till the end.

Had a great time. Met some lovely people. Great food and plenty of it. Nice cocktails ( bit pricey). If your expecting to meet the actors/housemates- won't happen- not an immersive experience just a cool bar with shared meal.

Great venue, friendly and interactive flat mates and delicious food. Only criticism would be that the portions could have been larger as it was on sharing plates. Met some lovely people at our table and had a really fun night. Visited TLYD OLD SITE on 2016-06-03

Really good food, super friendly "flat mates", I'd say the music was a bit loud after the dinner part as there wasn't really huge amounts of space for dancing & most people wanted to hang out & chat. Fun night though! Visited TLYD OLD SITE on 2016-05-06

Truly epic night! Hosts were fabulous and really got the party going. Food was really delish and plentiful. A very memorable evening, will be coming again!! Thank you to all the flat mates x

my partner and I had a great night here. The staff and other diners were warm and friendly. The food was delicious. I didn't mind bite size deserts being served on plates while the room was changed over from dinner to house party. loved the music, great cocktails. Would definitely recommend and go again Visited TLYD OLD SITE on 2015-10-16

The idea and concept is really good and the staff were friendly and welcoming. The food was pretty good but the deserts were tiny and just left lying around on a tray after everything got moved around. I thought it was quite expensive though for what it all was and especially the drinks and the cheek of charging service for drinks when you go to the bar to get them! The music was too loud as well for a "dinner party" making it hard to hear and difficult to have a conversation across the table.

Absolutely fantastic dinner party! The food was incredible - utterly scrumptious. And it was made all the more special by the quirky surroundings of the Little Yellow Door's apartment. I took 45 colleagues there and we had a blast. People are still glowing from how much fun we had.

Ultimate dinner party indeed! Fun, relaxed atmopshere with top notch food. Staff were super friendly and we were made to feel completely at home. Came with a few friends but would be perfect for cleberations and large groups.

The place itself is trendy, inviting and easy to find. We emailed ahead of time about dietary restrictions only to find that a starter and main (a specific plate made for my fiance) were not edible. It was nice to chat and meet new people but the first night of the South American menu left much to be desired. Plus, the drinks weren't the cheapest.

I had my birthday party at the little yellow door with a group of 17 people. Not only were they accommodating to some of my guest dietary requirements, all the food was incredibly tasty. After dinner we stayed for the cocktail party which was really good fun. Good music, plenty of Booz and a good time had by all.

The food, staff and the venue were amazing. It was such a shame that the music was too loud to talk to anyone even sitting directly across the table from me, though. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to anyone turning up on their own because of that - it made it very hard to start new conversations. But it's an awesome concept - I loved the thought that had gone into everything.

What an awesome evening! Food was spectacular, some of the combinations of flavours I've never experienced before. The staff were ultra fun and friendly, the ambience really great! Would highly recommend!

We had an enjoyable Friday night here recently, the food was great, the duck ragu being a real treat, the staff were really attentive and friendly, an innovative and quirky concept.

I had my gf's birthday here in March. The venue is superb. The vibe is very relaxed, the crowd is lively and fun. When dealing with the booking, the LYD staff were very accommodating and communicated throughout the process making the booking seamless. The night of the event the staff were fantastic, the food was excellent. The chef provided a variety of food and accommodated those who had specific requests. The Little Yellow Door is a venue that I would highly recommend to anyone.

I held my fiancés surprise 30th birthday here in January. The communication and assistance from the Little Yellow Door Team was incredibly accommodating from the beginning, and they were by far easier to deal with than any other venue I had ben speaking with. The concept is very different, and everyone that came complimented what a unique and great venue it was, One friend said she left her handbag on the side as she felt so comfortable (it really is like a sitting room). The food and drinks were superb and very good value to money. I would highly recommend this venue.
