One of the few Halifax pubs with a regular Cask beer selection

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... read 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.

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

We have eaten here before and it was OK but today it was memorable for irritating issues. We were on the main floor and the room was cold, we ordered the full English. The tables were not set which is OK, but we had to ask for cutlery from a waiter that looked at us as if it was a... More

WH1222, Manager at Henry House, responded to this review

Dear Mr. Kipperdave, I was sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience during brunch on the 14th. I spoke with the server about your concerns, and he was able to recall serving your table quite vividly. Upon taking your food order and sending it to the kitchen he recalls being taken off guard by fingers being snapped... More

Eggs Benny, cozy fires, festive decor just before Christmas, very relaxing atmosphere. The staff are great, and very accomodating, and the food is wonderful. Charming old building in Downtown Halifax. Have been a few times now, and always thoroughly enjoyed my dining experiences. Great stop after visiting the Seaport Farm Market on a cold dreary winter day.
