We were on a trip to see colonial America and found this to be of some interest. We accidentally met the owner of this restaurant while he was working in his garden at his home. We visited his restaurant, as we were basically eating only local dishes and were not disappointed.

Small, quaint Tavern with decent dinner menu and beer selection. I had pot roast and mashed new potatoes and green beans. Good choice. Street was popular. Battery Park is behind the bar. Most buildings on Delaware St. are historic. Nice stroll

It's like being in a restaurant back in Colonial times. Good food, good service, good time! I plan on visiting and getting another wonderful dinner soon!

I love shepard's pie. I love good beer. And I love my family. So where can I go and combine all of these things? Jessop's. I asked "is the shepard's pie good?" I was told by Benny, the fabulously sweet waiter, it is and it will last three days. Three days?! I actually have food for the week! There was... More

It is located in a quaint historic building in a historic neighborhood, but the food quality is not good! And the food prices are definitely on the higher side. There are 2 beef dishes on the menu, a pot roast called the "Hutspot" Dutch Pot Roast and a Bunker Hill Beef, which is supposed to be a hot roast beef.... More

Our dinner was very good and the service excellent. We sat at a table against the wall next to the fireplace. Soiled spots were on the wall and hopefully have been cleaned. We always enjoy Jessups and the historical atmosphere.

I stopped in for lunch at Jessop's Tavern which is in historic New Castle and walking distance to Battery Park which I have also reviewed. I sat at the bar and had great service from the bartender. Food was great. I had the Red, White & Blue Grilled flank steak topped with sauteed mushrooms & crumbled Stilton bleu cheese, served... More

We've been here twice now. Each time we come with a small group of friends, Usually six of us total. Each time we are always impressed with the bar and it's many selections. But each time we've had dinner, we are less impressed with the meal. The last time, one of us had the prime rib special , one had... More

I've been searching for a new place to live and wanted to show my brother why I love New Castle. The real estate agent recommended Jessop's and we couldn't be happier that he did. The decor is perfect, including the dress our server wore, and so was the food. The entrees and sides were all wonderful, served hot and delicious.... More

I've been to Jessop's Tavern on several occasions, most recently in October 2016. It is a great place to have drinks and a meal with friends. We were there on a Friday night and it was very busy. Whilst the atmosphere is great with its old world pub charm and it is a fun place to hang out with friends,... More
