Cool little English gastropub type motif in old school downtown Orange, close to Bruery Provisions. Lots of wood, really enjoyed hearing The Get Up Kids on whatever was playing the music (I suspect someone's ipod on shuffle).

A great alleged selection of beers available. I dunno what the deal is with this unfortunate trend lately, but it gets old repeatedly requesting beers that are on the menu, on the website, but not actually available. Claimed Damnation 23, no. Claimed Alpine Nelson, no. Claimed -bal Ten Fidy, no. Service was decent, some hotties, some heavier, uglier, tatted types that give the fellow tall skinny hottie trainee employees dirty looks behind her back, that was classic. Ended up finally settling on a $15 bottle of Alpine Duet. At least it was fresh.

Shepard's Pie was disappointing, bland, just some supermarket hamburger & mashed potatoes. Just wasn't all that impressed with this place, I hate places that hype up their beer selection on paper, but then fail to deliver in reality.

I like the vibe here. Hip. It’s a bar and then a nice sized reastaurant section with 30 or so tables.

Very good bar with an extensive menu of spirits, including whiskeys, ryes, bourbon, etc bottled beer and draft beer list with abkut 20 different offerings with nice diversity of styles and unfamiliar offerings for someone from out of town.

The food is decent to very good. Last week we had deviled eggs, which were excellent. The grilled octopus was not that good because it was rather tough, although the flavors were nice. The pig’s head terrine was probably the best appetizer that we had. So definitely some unique menu items. The burger was very good and they serve it with a large plate of fries.

The service was attentive and speedy.

Overall, this is my go to in Olde Town Orange when seeking great craft beer options and very good food, overall.

Haven Gastropub is located in Old Towne Orange, a quaint area of Orange. It has a small town ambiance with a traffic circle that doubles as a town plaza.

They had both a bar area and table seating. The interior had lots of dark wood in its design which was very appealing. I sat at the bar and had a glass of sour with their pretzel. The mustard dip accompanying the pretzel was fantastic. The beer selection was pretty nice.

A nice gastropub in a nice area. I enjoyed my visit very much.

I visited this place while vacationing with my family. Lucky me it was during OC Beer Week and a Bottle Logic Tap Takeover. Needless to say I feel in love with this place. Very cool vibe. The hamburger was on point. Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable.

Came for lunch. Amazing beer selection! They were doing a great flight from Drie Fonteinen including Framboos. Great tap selection and the bottle list was incredible. I did NOT think the prices were bad at all. The food was also incredible - we had the pork tacos, mac and cheese, and poutine. All were fantastic. Highly recommended.

I've been here quite a few times and am not sure how I didnt review this yet. Anyway, this review is from 8/14/12 with StarRaptor and Markintihar

Atm- Its built in the veign of an open restaurant style with open black ceilings, big windows along the side a fireplace and a big bar along the side. At night with the wood its a bit dark and nice with the low lighting.

Quality- Overall the quality of this place is great. The food is well crafted and super tasty. The beer is on point most of the time, Wish they had a bit more on tap at times. Most of the time its things that are pretty available in So.Cal. No real WOW beers. Bottles are pretty good as well.

Service- Always prompt and helpul, lots of yes sir and can I get you anything else. The chef and staff really make people feel at home.

Selection- Its a one page menu and thats okay. I just need more sometimes. Not a flaw per se just needs a bit of variety.

Food- Amazing everytime. Last night I got the lamb burger. WOW. Super flavorful and perfectly cooked to the chefs selection.

Value- I'm torn here. Its kinda in between reasonable and pricey. For 1 beer, chips and the burger was over $30.
