Welcome to New England's only Scottish Restaurant and Bar.
We are in the Haffenreffer brewery complex in Jamaica Plain, having relocated from Perkins St, where we originally opened in 2010.
Thriving during a pandemic due to great take out options, hard working loyal staff (and a new sidewalk patio), we now provide expanded menu offerings, more events and a fantastic cocktail and single malt program in a beautiful award winning designed space.
We look forward to seeing you at the opening of The Haven at the Brewery.

    Lovely setting in the old brewery building. Server was very pleasant and efficient. Burger was reported to be very good, steak was a little chewy. Nice selection of beers.

    Loved the new space. We chose to eat indoors as it was still hot out at 530. The seafood platter was excellent as well as the special vegan pizza. Portions are good sized. Our waiter was informative and attentive. I am so happy that The Haven is back in its new Brewery location. The place is popular so reservations are recommended.

    We were so happy to be back after they closed briefly to move to the new location. The new location is beautiful and spacious without giving up the warm, friendly, low key atmosphere of the smaller space. Great job! Cheers!

    The service was great. We had reservations and was told we would have at least a 25 minute wait. But, the hostess checked in with us and actually found a way to seat us sooner and was so nice. As far as the food. We were starving so ordered the oat cakes to take the edge off. The butter was delicious but, the oat cakes, not so good. My go to at the Haven is the burger. So amazing, everything about it! My sister get the hanger steak, pricey and was not very good, cooked nicely but tasted a little too much like worcestershire sauce. Enough for her but, a bit skimpy for the price. We are not beer drinkers, maybe, the wine list could improve over time. We ended with a delicious scotch recommended by our delightful waitress. The atmosphere is fantastic.

    Love the new expanded space. Nice to see it so busy on a weekday night. Our server was great. Love the scotch egg app and fish supper (except I am not a mushy pea fan). Also attended Dram night hosted by Jason , fun to taste whiskeys. Will continue to go back

    One of my favorite pubs in New England. Focus on Scottish comfort food is so old-world, yet refreshing for this area. Bonus for the array of Scotch Whiskys and other Scottish beverage options.

    We truly enjoyed our dining experience at the Haven in Jamacia Plain. The atmosphere is simple and casual with Scottish pub decor. The food choices were Scottish to the core. We ordered Scottish eggs, haggis, fish and chips, and bridies. Every dish was delicious! And the bar did not disappoint!
