Had the St-Ambroise apricot beer with a lobster roll which has dill in it, it is awesome. Then had the hot pudding, really good!! Nice place to relax while walking around Halifax.

We had drinks in the lower level pub. The patio looks nice too, but it was full! The service was excellent. The cider was cold and fresh on a hot day. We looked at the menu and they had lots of pub fare including some seafood items. The lobster dip looked good as did the nachos. Unfortunately we did not... More

Sitting in the house of a Father of Confederation on Canada Day adds to a delightful meal served by delightful people - thank you to our servers - this Yorkshireman recommends the Peculiar beer!

There is a restaurant on the main floor, a pub on the lower level, and on the weekend, a lounge upstairs. We ate supper on the outdoor patio and had a great meal. Shepherd's Pie, Superior Burger, Caesar Salad, French Onion Soup and desserts were tasty. They have a great selection of beers. Service was attentive and friendly. Food wasn't... More

Came here for dinner with a group of colleagues. It is a beautiful, old, heritage house and so really provides that traditional pub atmosphere. The service was good, and the food delicious. Would definitely come back.

Henry house offers tasty food in congenial surroundings with friendly service. Obviously popular with locals. The upstairs restaurant with its wooden furnishings and nice proportions in a historic building provides a unique setting for memorable meals. We returned for a second evening during a short visit in Halifax.

Henry House is a beautiful pub whose kitchen is open all night, which is great if you've explored Halifax all day and are looking for a late dinner! The service is great and food is delicious. The decor and music makes for a great atmosphere; really feels like you're in an ole pub house for sure. I had a steak... More

this place wants to be upscale pub food but it is ordinary pub food. great, old building with nice atmosphere and friendly stuff but food choices and execution lack any sophistication.

Beautiful old pub with radio nail fare. The nachos are huge! I really like the beer sampler. Great salads. Good selection of desserts. I enjoyed the sticky toffee pudding. It was very busy tonight and was crowded.
