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

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.

The Henri House surrounding is great with its heritage features obvious all around you. Service staff is great and the food selection is very appealing. There is no pressure to rush you out the doors even when they are busy. I recommend the Henry House to anyone and for every occasions. Sincerely Clement Rodrigue, Halifax, NS

I have been to this Pub twice in the last month or so. Once for Sunday Brunch with our Brunch Club and another time for dinner with another group of friends. In both cases I have enjoyed the meals and friendly service.

During the summer months, they have a great patio and my Nova Scotia family and friends always insist on going there. My 2 faves: 1) the make great soup (and it's my favourite food and the excel) and 2). excellent desserts especially things like hot puddings and deserts

Salted cod fish cakes. Have them for brunch. Have them for dinner. Granite beer from the tap is pure delight. Great service. Rooms are pretty (the place is ancient and meticulously kept) but a little british for my taste. Still, salted cod fish cakes. Yup, recommend.

I've visited the Henry House for drinks a few times, however, only ate there for the first time last weekend. There was no room downstairs so we stayed on the main level. We were super impressed with the atmosphere - very cozy. Service was great, food was delicious. Worth a visit. :)

Often visit Henry House for lunch. Often with groups of friends. Service is quick and friendly. Food is typical pub fair with some touches that are unique. Fish cakes with chow are great. Summertime deck is good spot. Pub style basement, and more formal dining room on main floor. Fireplace in pub.
