About this place
When you walk into Jessop's Tavern, you'll think you've stepped back in time. No TVs in sight, colonial garb, and a faint English accent in the air: It's these special touches that make every visit to our tavern a unique, exciting experience. Named for the cooper who built his barrel-making business here in the 1700s, we're keeping the history alive. With an ever-changing selection of beer on tap, enjoy a Belgian draft and shepherd's pie while you take in the classic charm of New Castle. The historical significance of our town inspires everything we do, making our 350-year-old building an extraordinary destination for locals and visitors alike.
