We went to Henry house on Barrington st. It was just walking distance from where we were staying. It a old building style building. ..it was full . We sat by the widow close to the old fashion fireplace made of red bricks. The flame from the fireplace was natural gas I think but it was not real wood burning.... More

We ate here a couple of times on our trip. The food was delicious and service was really good. But the beautiful old building makes us feel like we stepped back in time - so much history. Well, all of Halifax has this feeling, which is why we fell in love with the city. We will definitely return.

We visited the Henry House in Halifax with a group of friends that recommended the place and suggested that they had the best fish and chips in town. So of course i had to order them but was very displeased with the quality, cook and lack of taste. We did a east coast trip and it was surely the worst... More

Excellent service, atmosphere and good food. I loved the pub/restaurant's old style (and I'm English).

I organized a group dinner here, which was challenging as I was told they do not take reservations. This meant that we could not sit in the parts of the restaurant that were recommended, as they were already occupied when we got there. The food was good, but I had an upset stomach afterwards (likely from a combination of foods,... More

Dropped in last Friday night for supper, As always, the Yorshire Peculiar from Granite Brewery was superb. Had my absolute favourite burger, which never ceases to appeal - has been my go to since 1988. Can't beat the Henry House for fries, eithr!

My wife and I dined at the downstairs pub recently. My wife is a fan of this location and this was my first visit. Great service and atmosphere. The nacho chips are made on site along with a wide variety of beers. My wife really enjoyed the fish cakes with ghost cheese/pear salad. Will definitely be back!

Had traditional lunch in the cellar of the pub. Good food and fun time. Beer was varied and good. Only problem there were no bangers and mash.

I have given an average, which is too low, but very good would be too high. When I read authentic pub and then loads of food reviews, its worth pointing out that an authentic pub are not full of tables with cutlery, condiments and cutlery on them and do not do food beyond maybe, a sandwich or such like. If... More

The title really says it all. We had Henry House recommended to us by a local. He said that we would not be disappointed and boy was he right. The other plus point is the prices were very reasonable. You often hear that you should seek out the places that the locals frequent. This is one of those places. Try... More
