We attended a private party, celebrating a Golden Wedding Anniversary at this venue last night. What a lovely venue! The food is excellent, with a choice from three dishes for both the first and main course. All the dishes were superb - well presented and cooked. Not like the usual venue food. The dessert was lovely: three little tasters, all... More

Spent Friday night in the private function room for Eleanor Petrou's Birthday and every guest said how wonderful the food was. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and the owner Julius made us feel that nothing was too much trouble. Thank you to the Shoremans for all the extras and the hard work and we would recommend the Haven... More

While I know London well, and am happy to venture to the suburbs, independent travellers should also think about taking the tube to one of the city's many outlying communities. Barnet lies about twenty minutes on the tube from central London and offers a number of very good, local restaurants, and The Haven is a fine example. The menus changes... More

I visited recently with a friend. The menu was varied and the wine list acceptable. The service is polite and attentive. The portions are generous, and the food tasty. I previously visited the venue for a wedding in September 2015. It also has a vibrant bar with music adjacent to the restaurant.

I booked this table for 6 five days prior for a Saturday night at 8.15. I had visited in the past for dinner and various private parties and always found very nice. I called and confirmed reservation. On arrival our table was almost in the bar area and my friend was literally seated by the coat stand. We asked if... More

Great place to hire out for parties. The back room in particular is a good size for around 50 people with food. Good location and wide choice of cocktails.
