“Good Pub Food”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

The Henry House Pub occupies a national historic building on Barrington Street near the train station. The pub has a relaxed atmosphere and a rustic feel that offers a variety of craft and local beers. The menu combines British Pub food with Maritime selections. The fish and chips are a good choice as well as the chowders and salads.
If you can snag a patio table on a warm Halifax evening, you will have a great vantage point from which to enjoy what Halifax has on offer.

“Great shaded patio!”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 via mobile

We were here for an evening business meeting. We luckily got a table on the patio. It was nicely shaded with greenery and had a nice breeze which is welcomed on a summer evening.

The tables are cozy, but at no point did we feel cramped. The waiter was friendly and prompt.

The interior of the pub is quite charming.

We had drinks and apps. The calamari was excellent. The spinach dip was nice and cheesy, but the nachos it was served with were so so.

Would definitely recommend this place, so stop in and check it out for yourself.

“good little pub”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

the server had no issues moving us indoors when it cooled down. the outside patio was nice enough. Not very much "gluten free" on the menu, but it's a pub, so I expected that it would be difficult to eat there. Ordered the chicken curry - it was gross. And I'm not sure how "gluten free" it was (I have more silent Celiac, so it's hard to tell sometimes). My non-Celiac dinner mates enjoyed their meal and their beer. It's one of "the" places to go in Halifax, so I would encourage you to check it out. Just be prepared to starve if you have Celiac disease (seriously, do not get the curry).

“A wonderful restaurant”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

The building in which this restaurant resides is a historically designated site, and the food is fantastic. Great stew and even better burger. The ultimate burger is one of the best I've had. Very reasonably priced and the portions are quite large. A great selection as well.
