Jack Straw’s Castle is a Grade II listed building in Hampstead, which used to function as a large pub, and dates back to the 18th century.

Charles Dickens was known to visit the pub, describing it as a place where he could get ‘a red-hot chop for dinner, and a glass of good wine’ and it is also mentioned in Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

The pub closed in 2002 and it is currently unoccupied.
