Home to Yellowbeard

A very old pub and partly responsible for a comic Pirate

Location: North End Way, Hampstead, NW3 7ES

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'.

Yellowbeard is a 1983 comedy film by Graham Chapman, along with Peter Cook, Bernard McKenna and David Sherlock. It was directed by Mel Damski. The film included Marty Feldman in his last film appearance.
