“Henry VIII”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

For a somewhat formal meal and proper attire this is one of the right places. Jackets required for gents. This is a great for a first night or last night dinner.

“3 1/2 stars Don't go for the ambiance”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

We asked some local English business men for an authentic pub style food experience and they highly recommended this place.

You will find many European travelers here but when we walked in, we were taken back by the 70's style Steak and Ale decor.

We sat down and ordered a drink. The place was busy, but service was friendly and attentive (not so authentic LOL). We stayed and had an excellent dinner of very authentic pub style food.

We met several frequent business travelers in the bar and enjoyed our night. Go for the food, not the ambiance. NOT for a romantic evening!

“Like an old supper club”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

This place got good reviews so my wife and I were disappointed when we visited for the first time. Decor-wise it looks like a 1970's era supper club with an Olde English theme. Very dowdy and in need of major updating. Ditto the menu, which was predictable and unsurprising. Service was OK, not great. The serverf seemed very focused on getting our order and delivering the food, which is admirable, but for a place like this, I expected more personality and engagement from the wait staff.
Then comes the food. No question the Bermudian fish chowder was really great, but our entree's were.....meh. Got the rock fish and scallops. Both were passable, but served with a unimaginative mix of corn and carrots and either baked potato, mashed potato or rice.....very much like a banquet hall meal or something coming out of a high-production kitchen, not an upscale restaurant.
Henry VIII is like hundreds of other restaurants who got great AAA reviews 20-25 years ago and then put everything on cruise control. They live off past glory and return visits from folks who ate there back in the day. But for someone new like me, I was not impressed, but rather depressed, by my experience there.

“Great swizzle, slightly pricy”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

Henry VIII is a nice pub within striking distance of Horseshoe Bay and a few other tourist hot spots. Good salads, excellent fish chowder, and the best rum swizzles we had in Bermuda (yes, we went to the Swizzle, and yes, this was better in my opinion).

It's a good place to grab lunch if you're in the area. I'd say it was slightly overpriced, but not badly so. Great view from the outdoor seating area.

“Good Meal”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

My family and I had the opportunity to have dinner here this past weekend. We seated right away and the place just seems full of history. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Everyone was pleased with their meals. We also like the fact that they did not rush us out.
