Description: This was formerly called Pippin, the first ever vegetarian restaurant in Hampstead. In the sixties and seventies it attracted a creative, artistic clientele such as Bronco John, Peter Cook's homeless chat partner.
Musician, and one-time Joe Strummer collaborator, Pablo Cook managed Pippin in 1981-82.
