We discovered this brew pub only a couple of blocks from our hotel (The Halliburton). Great food, excellent real fresh cask ale brewed on site, nice staff with good senses of humour, and a wonderful old restored house once the residence of a well known politician.

Really one of the best pubs in town. The patio in the summer is large so you are likely to get a seat, although the HH really is a winter hang out - downstairs is always nice and warm due to the fireplace. In addition to having lots of character, the beer selection is really nice (plus they have a good beer sampler), and the food is the best "pub" food in town!

Our last day in Halifax was rainy. We had been travelling all day and Mike at the Waverley recommended we try Henry House on the corner. This big stone home looks like an inn. We tried it, and we loved it. We will definitely return there. The dining room is like a higher class English pub (but casual dress is fine), the food was prepared British style (steak and kidney pie - excellent) but the only thing they didn't have was Guinness. However, our waiter suggested another stout and it was worth a second glass.

Settling into a English Style Pub on a rainy night can't get any better. Food, service and atmosphere was just what we needed after a long day of travelling.

We had dinner here based on TripAdvisor reviews. The food was good, but slightly unusual. Panko crusted salmon, I've never had breading on salmon. And a huge dolop of gralic aoli? It was tastey, in small amounts. My husband had jambalya, it was very good with the right amount of heat for a cajun dish. The atmosphere was loud at first, but it seemed to get better as the meal went on. Service and waitstaff were good.
