Lively, multi-story pub in a historic building thatís in excellent condition. At least 19 beers on tap including 3 hands pulled cask ales. Three brewery-based 4-beer flights are available as well as 13 and 18 oz pours. Warm and friendly atmosphere. Small bars with most people sitting at tables and, at dinner time, having both food and beer. Multi-level outside patio too.

Very nice gastropub with several bars inside and out. Reasonable selection of local beers. Enthusiastic service, good food. Very cosy booths in basement bar.

The Henry House is a worthy stop on a drinking tour of Halifax. The building is pretty old for this part of the worth and pretty nice looking. The 1st floor is dining only, so you need to head to the basement if you want to sink a few cold ones. They offer a wider range of beers than other reviewers suggest - over 20 draught beers including a few cask ales. They offer flights from local breweries e.g. granite, as well as beers from regional Canadian brewers. I also had a rather delicious seafood chowder. No particular stand-out beers when I visited, but a fun place to have a drink nonetheless.

While they had a good selection of top notch, local craft beers, the service stood out to me. The staff was quite knowledgeable about beer. Tyson particularly knew the beers.

Love the basement, no interest in the main floor. Great spot to enjoy some fine Granite beer, and usually solid pub food.

Charming house/pub, dark downstairs but we sat on the airy patio. Food is a choice of traditional pub fare (I had salt cod cakes and homemade baled beans, which were awesome) and slightly upscale maritime-influenced food. There were 10 people at our table, and every food order was delicious. Beers are British style and milder in character, but generally decent. Lots of MacCauslan on tap too, including a phenomenal cider. Nice spot.

Beautiful little pub downstairs, with really good food and well-handled beers. Selection isnít great, but itís miles better than average in the area, and with some real standouts. Nice people, generally quiet enough to think. Top drawer, in my books.

The atmosphere here is great. Itís olde style british pub (downstairs) with a fancy dining room upstairs. The few times Iíve been here the service has been fairly stellar, although the staff doesnít really seem to know anything about beer besides what they have. Selection is heinous, but still above par for the local market with dominantly McAuslan products and the local standard brews. Pretty good value, you can usually stave off starvation and indulge in a pint or three for under $40.

Visited on a Monday afternoon back in November, they were playing fun oldies rock music upstairs in the big old dining room, and similar downstairs in the dungeony student bar. Didnít try the food. Taps were interesting enough (mostly Granite and McAuslan and other local brews). Service was friendly, but could also afford to be on a quiet afternoon. Would be interesting to re-visit the basement on a busier night. Extra points for rich historical values.
