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.
Wether it's the award winning Burger, Haggis or a sumptuous dessert, you will find something for everyone at The Haven.
We look forward to seeing you at The Haven at the Brewery.

    Exceptional food and drink options. Beer and whiskey selection is outstanding. Fish supper with fresh haddock was impressive. A must try is the crème brûlée with whiskey. Incredible. Thursdays sometimes come with entertainment.. loved the bag piper.. added a lot to the Scottish flare the haven brings.

    I have been wanting to come here for quite some time - the food was authentic Scottish fare, lots of great Scottish beers on tap. I enjoyed a hot steaming bowl of Cullen skink (chowder with smoked haddock) and my husband really liked the smoked fish cakes. We split a generous portion of fish and chips complete with minty mushy peas and topped off the meal with a Glenmorangie crème brûlée. Excellent friendly service as well. We will Definitely be back.

    I love this restaurant. I’ve come here for every birthday since 2018, the last two New Year’s Eves and just about every special occasion in between. During the pandemic, they were our special occasion take out. They have an amazing selection of scotch and the Scottish food is excellent. If there is a lamb special on the menu, order it!

    This is the same Haven that used to be on the corner at the rotary in JP - only difference is that there are no more free oatcakes! Deduct 1/2 star for not having a phone - we had to change our reservation and couldn't figure out how to contact the restaurant - they were understanding, but as a non-millennial who still uses the phone - very frustrating.

    No where near our expectations. Have been to UK many times so I was automatically coercing a similar experience. Whiskey selection was limited. Food was basic. Our main course came before we were even half finished with our appetizer. When waitress was queried she said yeah the chef is working on their timing. Portions were ok. We had two whiskey selections and wanted a 3rd but our waitress was nowhere to be found. Got the attention of another waiter and when 3rd drink came the server brought a pipette. I hugged her since we weren’t offered this for our first two drinks and we ordered some expensive product - while it’s standard protocol in UK just assumed ok they were not hip to that. Finally hailed down another waiter - not our waitress for our check, paid and on the way out saw our waitress sitting at the bar with a drink and a full plate of food stuffing her face. Had not seen her after we ordered our 2nd drink - 30 mins after we arrived! Bottom line - won’t go back - not worth the cost nor hassle to get to a very difficult location. And missing the little things like timing of meal dishes and quality of service just make it a forgetful experience.

    Sadly, the service was super slow but we went during the marathon, so understandable. I think it was tough to wait 2 hours for a $17 egg and vegetable dish that consisted of 4 pieces of lettuces, 5 cauliflower and two small eggs. Also got two small cold cheese birdie pies. The portions aren’t good.

    Had a great dinner here with friends on a drizzly evening. Very cozy atmosphere, great, friendly service. The steak entree is very generous and tasty. I don't drink beer, so it paired nicely with a dry, crisp hard cider. Definitely will be back. This is a neighborhood place for us.
