Our usual dining place when we visit.

This has an English Pub type menu with variations. When we visit my wife always has the Shepards Pie. I will jump around. Had lobster linguine tonight but in past have had a Louisiana gumbo, French onion soup, or ruben sandwich. Whatever we have had has been very well prepared. The bar offerings... read more

Myself and a bunch of friends and I came here for my birthday this month! I had a blast, service was great, food (pan friend haddock) was fantastic! Love the beer options on tap. I had a great birthday thanks for starting my 25th year off right Henry house :)

This place was the best place we've eaten in town. Food was fast and hot, very good. Yummy. Staff was very friendly and accommodating with us and our 10 month old daughter. Will definitely be back in the future.

This place is very old(approx. 180 years,I believe) It is haunted and has a very cool history and decor. The wait staff are wonderful. The food was just average pub food-not bad but not great. Lots of variety for beers. Check it out for the history and decor...but that is about all.

My son and I loved this restaurant, he had the leg of lamb, which was tender and fell off the bone, I had a wonderful chowder. The desserts were beautiful and restaurant/bar is very authentic, all in wood and very comfortable. Would love to return

From when we showed up till when we left we were happy. The gentle music along with the friendly service was fantastic. When we saw the menus we were a little surprised by how expensive it was. However once our food came we knew why. The portions were more than enough and it was absolutely delicious.

My wife and I really enjoyed a couple local beer and a super meal at Henry House. Our server was very helpful and informative on the various local brews and helped us make a couple very good choices. The build is a beautiful Historic property from around 1834 and gives the feel of stepping back in time with the wooden... More

A friend introduced us to this bar else would not have known about it. Classic drinks made properly (Whiskey sours, Pimms etc.) Fantastic cozy setting in the upstairs of Henry House. Love the wood paneling, beams, exposed stone walls and fireplaces. Absoliute gem of a place.
