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

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.

I always like coming here both for the Cask beer selection and also the historical building it's located. The pub section downstairs is dark and to some dreary, but I find it interesting to sit somewhere that's existed for hundreds of years. This time I sat in the upstairs area which is bright and seated next to the front window... More

Great indoor restaurant and in the summer season great outside deck area. The food is good and the wait staff are friendly and very knowledgeable about the area and what to see and do while you are here.

I have been to the Henry House MANY times... It has a nice cozy environment and there is always a seat downstairs by the fire. The male servers an be a bit of a hit and miss in terms of the customer service but otherwise there is nothing to complain about! On my most recent visit I had the beef... More

Went for lunch on a recent Sunday afternoon. Loved the historical ambience. We were just in time to score a seat in front of the fireplace. As we had been walking around in downtown Halifax, trying not to slip on the up icy sidewalks, it was great to be somewhere warm and toasty. Had typical pub food - burgers, etc... More
