Cozy colonial atmosphere. Specializes in large selection of beers. Soups are original and hearty. Traditional crab cakes and rich ice creams.

My wife and I are "regulars" and usually stop in once a week. The dining rooms are nice (they are "cozy") but we sit at the bar for dinner and a show. The bar staff are all great and chatting with the locals always leads to interesting stories. The food...well you better be hungry! The food is great and the... More

Stopped with friends that love good beer selection and they had it. Felt like I was in true English pub. After a few minutes we knew we wanted to eat and the food was excellent. Staff was great and looked the part. Will definitely make it a regular stop whenever driving thru area. Downtown is a must see.

I will start with the good. The smorgasbord app was great. Fun way to have an appetizer. HUGE high quality beer selection. You could probably have something different everyday for a year. Period costume and historic charm was really good. Service was solid but not great. The entrees were where we were looking for a little more. Green beans were... More

Food was good. I had the Shepherd's pie. It was enormous and while it was 75% mashed potato and was ground beef vs. a... More

Jessop' Tavern is in old New Castle with a number of historic buildings nearby and narrow streets. Nearby streets are still cobblestone covered and sidewalks are brick paved. This historic feel is carried into the tavern itself. We found 2 rooms with tightly spaced rustic tables. The narrow entry room has a bar and a row of tables on the... More

We went for our Thanksgiving dinner so had made a reservation (absolutely necessary for this very small delightful restaurant. I am disabled, using a rollator cart. It was stowed for us helpfully. We had come a little early before any service began--no problem we were taken to our table--one of the nicest, by the open fire place. The menu might... More

Great shrimp appetizers and wonderful wine recommendation. Service was impeccable. The private atmosphere in the back room was intimate to have a conversation but the bar area was lively.
