The popular north London pub was frequented by the likes of Guy Fawkes, Charles Dickens and William Hogarth in its long history. It was destroyed by a land mine during the Blitz of World War II. Damage to north London from enemy bombing was less extreme than in the areas along the river, but was still substantial. Jack Straw's Castle was rebuilt after the war ended and retained its popularity until it was shut and converted to luxury flats in the late 1990s.
