Whilst most places stayed shut, we stayed open and teamed up with Sam Heughan (Outlander) to win Best Burger USA 2020. It's The Jacobite Burger and only available to Open Table members.
With a new patio overlooking the Perkins esplanade and Best Date Night accolade this is the most romantic spot in the city.
We have a Scottish menu, extensive Single Malt Scotch list and over 15 Scottish crafts beers - this is a Scottish Imbibers heaven!
Expect a warm welcome from Kilt clad staff.
Join us for a Scotch fans heaven, we call it Dram Night and it's every Saturday at 9,.30pm.
We have x4 drams for $30 and a guided tasting with Haven owner and Scotch lover Jason Waddleton.

Great place and you can reserve outdoor seating. Food is very good and unique.
Limited brunch menu, missing many of my old favorites, and lacking basic breakfast/lunch items.
Service was very good, as usual. Prices are up, but so is everywhere else. Hoping they can get some dishes back on the menu soon.
The Haven never disappoints. We love introducing friends to this hidden gem.
Wonderful to be able to eat outside and enjoy the neighborhood buzz, as well as the great food and service. A treasure in JP.
I love The Haven and brought a friend who had never been there. We enjoyed two kinds of Crabbie’s, bridies, white pudding, shepherds pie and a deep fried Mars Bar. Lovely night to eat on the patio and catch up.
Great food! Specially the burger!
I had the “haggis” which I confirmed upon check-in was made “in house”. From the host to the server my overall experience was excellent. Highly recommend this place, will certainly be back when I’m in Boston again.
Always nice staff, excellent scotch.
Great fresh food, desserts. The drinks are perfect, not already mixed and great selection of whiskey and beer.Warm and friendly ambiance
I love the Haven! It has some great Scottish food with a lovely ambiance. They have a lot of outdoor seating, plus inside depending on your comfort. All the staff are friendly and the service was great.
Ate outside and it was the perfect evening. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, great food and the best whiskey selection probably in all of New England. What's not to love?
You can’t go wrong at The Haven! Delicious, fresh food in a welcoming, fun atmosphere.
The Haven was, as always, delicious and the staff wonderful. Sunday morning traffic was a little louder than usual, but fleeting. Did not affect our time there.
Wanted a simple but tasty place for brunch, and this fit the bill! We got a few sandwiches, a Scotch egg, some eggs benedict, and a French toast. All were tasty and generous portions (my partner and I had enough for a second small meal/snack later).
You may want to order something green and light on the side, as the food is rich!
The service could've been more attentive. I kept having to flag down a server.
Good and Service are Excellent. Outside seating option is great but some noise due to traffic.
A hidden gem! Fantastic food, famous Scottish hospitality, great single malts on hand, a great local pub, in the truest sense.
It is a great place, best food, real and best drinks, friendliest people. You can not get a better place with such a pleasant enjoyable environment. We are lucky to have such a restaurant in our neighborhood.
Always have brunch here with my friend Christine. For dinner I would have Crabbie’s but for brunch it is strictly mimosas (and mimosas and…). Perhaps a wee dram at dinner too. Love the people and the food and the service. Slainte!
I am very grateful the Haven is in JP, where I live. The burger is fantastic. The seafood platter was so so good. The atmosphere is so special, very authentic and casual. You feel you can be yourself, and kick it with your pals. The service is great. I highly recommend the Haven to anyone and everyone.
Our waitress (Diane?) was fabulous -- so attentive and lovely. Good with pacing.. Disappointed there was no haggis or Irn-Bru, but it happens.
Never disappointed. This is what a pub should be!
Good food. Great waitress. Quick turnaround
Fun place to hang out and escape the rain. It was very loud in there and hard to hold a conversation.
So happy to return to the aptly-named "The Haven" after a Pandemic break. It truly is an old world haven from modern life. A great place to sample and learn about the magic of scotch with great dining options.
The burger is as good as everyone says. If you're curious about scotch, the servers are happy to educate you.
Ordered a scotch egg and the haven burger to split with my girlfriend and when it came they had split it onto two plates without us even asking, that made me really happy. Shows they care. Service was good too, though a little more attention would have been appreciated.
Love this place. Relatively spartan in decor, but still feels very warm, welcoming, and above all British. For brunch, have bridies and a Scotch egg to start, and do not miss the smoked fish cakes with luscious poached eggs on top.
Food delicious and staff friendly and knowledgeable
We had heard about the Haven through press reviews for several years. The Scottish connection intrigued us, as my husband’s father was Scottish, and we know it well! We took our grandson to the Haven for his 14th birthday as he had enjoyed fish and chips in England! Yours were even better, he also loved the sticky toffee pudding! We very much enjoyed your burger, all in all a real success and we shall return !
We had a fantastic meal at The Haven, as always. The food is unique and always delicious. The drinks are top notch. Service was quick and friendly. The Haven feels like a home away from home. We love this place.
We had a great time at the Haven! There was a block party nearby and the place was very busy when we visited. Despite all this we received delicious food, fast service and the whole ambiance was great. The owner Jason and all the staff are very friendly. All my family loved their dishes, including haggis, Scotch egg and Scottish salmon. Will definitely be back when in Boston.
The food here is very good. To me, I could taste the authenticity in each dish, with the exception of the haggis, but it was still pretty good. The service is what I felt needed some help. The host was wonderful as well as the supplemental staff. Our main server was not wonderful. She was not too knowledgeable about the whisky, and she left us ignored a few times; I was uncertain if it was intentional or not, but when I expressed concern for the lag, rather than attempt customer recovery, she got snarky. I had to change the mood and try to be more chipper to get her back to normal. My partner and I were satisfied with the food, but due to the service from this server, I don’t believe that we will come back for dine in service.
Very relaxed down-to-earth atmosphere. Good service and nice job handling allergies. Exceptional burger, great shepherds pie.
Always a great time! Many thanks to Jason and his staff for always delivering!
Always an excellent time at The Haven! We were inside, quite late for Sunday brunch (2pm) so it was quiet. My friends had their service dog with them, and the staff were wonderful and made a lovely fuss of the dog, bringing water for her. The food was delicious as ever; staff were attentive and charming. This is a regular favourite for me, but was the first time for my friends - they loved it. Perfect Sunday brunch - prosecco, pot of tea, and the fishcakes. Wonderful!
My wife and I love The Haven. Its got great comfort food and atmosphere with nice outdoor eating area. the wait staff is friendly and efficient. Would highly recommend for an intimate dinner or tasty brunch.
Jason and his team are the best! Excellent service, great food selection (especially the burger and curry!) and an awesome Scotch list. Thanks to The Haven!!
The food is fantastic , great service and super friendly staff.
We had a great time at The Haven! The food was so good! We had bridies, which were new to us and they were amazing! I had the fish supper and the fish was light and flaky and fresh. Our server was supreme. We will definitely return.
