Rogers Manor Restaurants
Jessop's Tavern: good for lunch
The place is dark and warm in winter; crowded and noisy in summer. It is a great place to take a break from sightseeing and have a nice lunch. The place is an old 18th century building with decor and ambience to match that theme. The emphasis is on heavy, dark wood and large booths and low lighting.
Some of the menu items remind me of pub fare from my business days in England.
Sweet potato french fries, and open-faced steak sandwiches; beer for me and coffee for the wife. The staff was very friendly and courteous; they seemed genuinely pleased to have us as customers. The meal was ordered fairly quickly after a 15 minute wait to be seated. The food was brought to the table within another quarter-hour and it was hot and delicious.
The meal cost under 30 dollars for two people (the dinner prices were substatially higher than the lunch).
The bar section of the restaurant was nice with little fruit things for the customers on the counter. It was just about as crowded as the restaurant section and a lot noisier.
I have heard that the place is very crawded at dinner time and the wait can be an hour. Luckily, we did not go there at that time. But you should probably use the phone number below to call ahead if you are going there after 4pm.Related to:
