Description: Well it's Grade II listed dating from 1721...

Has fabulous views across the heath...

Is an old Hampstead coaching Inn which is believed to be the highest pub in London...

And called 'Jack Straw's Castle'...

And it was here in the early 1980s that one Graham Chapman (yes him off Monty Python) met with the legendary comic genius Peter Cook and the talented writer Bernard McKenna, for a drink...

To tie down the elusive script that was to become the classic comic pirate film 'Yellowbeard'.
