“popular place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Obviously a favorite of many as it was a busy place. Downstairs is pub style - main floor restaurant. We had a good meal and nice beer. Cool historic site!

“Nice patio for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Our hotel recommended we eat here as we were searching for a late lunch spot. We arrived around 3pm to find some people on the patio -which was beautiful and cozy. My husband had the veggie burger and I had the fish and chips. The food was good - not fantastic, but the service was great and the patio and nice weather were bonus!

We walked by later in the evening, and the place was hopping, so I'm assuming it's a nice spot for an after dinner drink as well.

“Great pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

We did not eat here but did enjoy the downstairs pub. The house is over 100 years old and the pub has an authentic English atmosphere. They have a good selection of beer and alcohol. Some of the draft ales are pumped out as you would be in England. Service was excellent.

“Cozy night at Henry house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

Loved this place! The weather was cool when we visited last week and raining. We stepped into the Henry House and it was wonderful and cozy. Waiter was great....helpful and very fun personality. Felt instantly "at home". Very relaxing. Dinner was delicious. I had the mussels and they were delicious. My husband doesn't share my love of mussels and the portion was very generous....no way I could eat them all. This place is slightly off the beaten track but minutes from boardwalk.....excellent evening.

“Sunday Brunch was enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

An older building that has an interesting menu, and was open on Sunday, which is hard to find in Halifax.
