    The Henry House is a small but excellent restaurant. It serves homebrewed beer and the food and service is like in good old England. Great place!

    This restaurant surely is on top of my favorite Halfax restaurants.

    The history (quoting the building plate at the front):
    This house was built in 1934 in a suburb of Halifax. Its side hall plan, typical of town houses, and the use of ironstoneand granite are representative of the style of many Halifax residences of the early 19th century. The masonry of the gable wall and the surrounds of the windows are Scottisch in character. For twenty years it was the home of William A. Henry, Father of the Confederation, Attorney General of Nova Scotia, Mayor of Halifax and Judge of the Supreme Court of Canada from its inception in 1875 until his death in 1888.

    There is a small terrace.

    Favorite Dish: The last time at 2006 I asked the waiter for his recommendation and he served the special:

    Mashed potatoes with gamba's as a base. In the middle an excellent roast. Topping was a mix a vegetables, beans, onins and more goodies. The cook who created this masterpiece only worked there for a year and I hope he stays for the years to come.
