About Us

Like the bird, The Mad Raven Pub and Restaurant in Waltham, is now one of the area’s truly unique places. It captures the mythical nature of our name with a rich old world feel yet a modern twist.

The Mad Raven

In Irish mythology ravens were symbols of freedom and tran- scendence, having the power to soar up above the earth into the heavens, and return to bring messages from the gods. Although its reputation was sometimes dubious, the raven was considered an oracular bird, often representing the upsets and crises of life which were deemed necessary for anything new to be created. In lore today, the Raven is a symbol of prophecy and protection.

The Mad Raven Pub & Restaurant has been a part of the Waltham community for over a decade, combining a traditional Irish pub's warmth and coziness with a contemporary and comfortable full service restaurant. Our menu offers an array of contemporary cuisine and upscale pub fare, with daily specials and offerings. We offer over 15 different draft beers, an extensive wine list and many signature cocktails.
