Brilliant Breakfast

This place is so quaint with enough interesting items on the walls and around the roof to look at that you might just forget that you've gone there to converse with another human being. And if that's not enough to distract you then the really really excellent breakfast and/or cakes will be. Relaxed... read more

I heard about The Haven on a Buzzfeed article. We were looking to have a Scottish breakfast and they were serving it all day, perfect ! It took us a while to go there by bus, it's not exactly in the touristic area, which makes it also less busy (well we went on a Monday too) The decoration is charming,... More

Nice takeaway breakfast rolls, however be prepared to wait at least twenty minutes very slow service as sit in and takeaway is not separate and if there is a lot of sit in customers you need to wait as all the food is cooked to order. Perhaps they should look at this as a takeaway customer you are looking to... More

Was just looking for a quick cuppa and found this little gem, my husband loved the homemade jam! Chilled atmosphere and the loo was clean!

A perfect place for a Saturday breakfast. I was there just after they opened and 15 mins later it was full with people coming and going to collect takeaway. A charming decor nice and casual. The coffee was good and the pancakes with bacon were generous. The bacon was thickly cut and a nice jug of ale syrup. Good value... More

Good food, excellent service and great value for money. Unpretentious and does what it does really well. Would far rather visit here than some chains that lack personality.

What a great place - the food was tasty and big portions, the staff very friendly and efficient and all for a good price. The half soup and half sandwich deal is a good one. Nice coffee and sone too. The decor is brilliant too - it takes you back in time and my girlfriend said "it's like having lunch... More

Once again the Haven impressed. It was our second visit and it was all good. The girls are as pleasant as any you'll find and the food was as good as ever. I do take on board that good food is served elsewhere but the overall feel is second to none. Five stars.

A bit like eating in a charity shop but the food was well cooked at a reasonable price. It was quite busy so by the time our food arrived we had finished our drinks
