Cozy pub in Halifax?

My husband and I like spending weekend afternoons in coffee shops — reading, writing, editing, etc. — but they all seem to close around 5. Can anyone recommend a cozy pub where we could while away a late afternoon? A fireplace would be nice and comfortable wooden booths are a must. Either side of the bridge is fine.

Basically, I'm looking for something like the Knot Pub in Lunenburg, but without loud sports in the background.

  1. The Fireside isn't really a pub and it doesn't have booths AFAIK. But it sounds like the kind of place you might like.

    I haven't been, but the Henry House recently opened a new room on the 3rd floor that is apparently based on an authentic English pub.

      Thanks, Greg. We'll be checking out the Henry House this weekend, I expect.
