“Lovely Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

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.

“Inviting venue for informal dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

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.

“deliscious late night dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

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 and mushroom pastry pie and my boyfriend had bacon and goat cheese stuffed chicken. We started with the calamari, which is a must!!

“'gourmet' wanna be pub food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

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.

“Pub night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

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.
