Great Pub!

We were there on a beautiful sunny day and enjoyed sitting outside. Nice selection of beer and good food. We both had the chicken stuffed with goat cheese which was unbelievably tender and moist. Great service as well!

We enjoyed the British bangers and mash..YUMMY! Piping hot meal mash potoato and sausages on a cold rainy day. This is a heritage house with lots of history..there is a pub down stairs and a patio outside on nice days. Loved the nachos too! Excellent service!

It was difficult to find a hostelry in Halifax where English beer aficionados could enjoy a beer - many of their local beers are well made but spoilt for the discerning English palate by being served ice cold and under keg pressure. Others would argue when in Roman do what the Romans do!. Henry House was an exception, a good... More

I stopped by recently for a cocktail in the top floor bar. The decor is fantastic and the drinks are great quality. Highly recommended for a drink.

What a great spot for local beer and bar fare! Had a double IPA and a very large plate of nachos on the patio. I recommend this spot for those looking for casual drink and eats!

We had burgers, we had beer, we relaxed on the patio. What more could you want? The Henry House has levels to explore inside but mid-summer it was all about their mid-size outdoor space, accented with flowers and ivy, welcoming and unpretentious. This is the kind of place you go back to again and again in your hometown, but as... More

After two nights of mediocre restaurants that seemed to be geared to the Halifax Seaport tourists, we came upon The Henry House. Located in a restored historical home, the setting was charming, the staff attentive and the meals were innovative and exceptionally well prepared. We are only sorry that it took us until the last night of our visit to... More

Great downtown pub. The nachos are fantastic. Great atmosphere. Fills up fast! Go early or late or during the week to get a seat. Restaurant upstairs but the pub downstairs has the best feel.

We had a fabulous dinner here in Aug 2014, our first night in Halifax. We loved it so much that we chose Henry House to be our last meal before leaving beautiful Canada! They have a wonderful pub downstairs with some outdoor seating! Lovely experience!!

I went here twice & experienced Dine Around and Burger Week. Though usually the restaurant is a bit expensive($25+), when they have discounts or events going on I recommend going! It is a rustic looking place that is very popular in Halifax. It is well known in both the tourist and local community as a good spot to go when... More
