The guys behind this Notting Hill venue have taken the house party idea and run with it. Part supper club, part bar, part party, the Little Yellow Door bills itself as 'the ultimate flatshare', with a venue that's kitted out like your average London house (whatever that might be) and visitors invited to treat it as their own.
It's hosted by five (presumably fictional) flatmates. Wednesday nights serve up dinner and cocktails, Thursdays a 'weekend warm-up', Fridays dinner with drinks and games, (think Twister and all that ensues) and Saturdays a classic house party. Expect plenty of cocktails, including bowls of punch (of course).
Those heading down for food won't be fobbed off with chips and dips. Menus range from taramasalata served with confit onions and pork scratchings, quail scotch eggs and duck sausage rolls to rarebit with Guinness and devilled mushrooms, and chicken wings with stuffing in blankets and roast potatoes.

The Little Yellow Door at number 68, Notting Hill Gate (what a superb address) is home to a few friendly flatmates who have transformed their flat share into a (now permanent) pop-up restaurant and bar, open to anyone who's up for an informal bite to eat in a casual, house party vibe.
We opted for the famous Emoji Menu that takes influence from current flatmate Hank's American roots. Decoding the menu, we put in a Whatsapp order for the buffalo chicken wings, a chicken salad and steak sandwich.
The wings were a hot mess - quite literally. They were super sticky and spicy - just as wings should be. My friend was also massively impressed with her gigantic salad, put together to suit her gluten and dairy free allergies - these guys not only welcome you in with great big smiles but they make sure to look after you too. And that steak baguette... thinly sliced pink beef was drizzled with truffle mayo, stuffed into soft fresh mini rolls with rocket.I will happily hold my hands up and say it was one of the best steak sandwiches I have ever eaten. I was pretty damn sad when it was over.
I can honestly say that The Little Yellow Door surpassed my expectations. Its not the poshest food on the block but its bloody delicious and incredible value. It might be the definition of hipster, but you don't have to don a man bun or dungarees to be invited up to the colourful flat. You might not take your Nan here, but she sure would be welcome.
