Genuine early American fare at a reasonable price. Jessop's Tavern is situated in Historic Olds New Castle. After enjoying meals like authentic Sheppard's pie take a leisurely stroll down to Battery Park to watch the ships go by on the Delaware river

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
