Welcome to New England's only Scottish Restaurant and Bar.
We opened in 2010 on Perkins St, Jamaica Plain and in 2017 secured a much coveted liquor license enabling us to sell Scotch for the first time!
We thrived through the pandemic due to great take out options, hard work and a new patio.
We are now expanding into a new space at the Haffenreffer brewery complex in Jamaica Plain where we look forward to providing expanded menu offerings, more events and a fantastic cocktail and single malt program.
We look forward to seeing you in early June at the opening of The Haven at the Brewery.

    My friend and I split two entrees. The fish and chips were superb and the vegetable curry was good. Great beer selection and excellent service. A bit loud and crowded on a Friday night.

    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!

    This is a superb restaurant. Focus on the food, no fuss, but everything as it should be. It's not trying to be all things to all people. Rather, it has integrity and does what it does very well - authentic Scots food in a pub atmosphere. Service is friendly, timely, relaxed yet professional.
