This Tudor temple attracts pilgrims from all over Bermuda, but is particularly convenient for those staying nearby hotels such as The Reefs or the Fairmont Southampton. Its namesake beheaded his wives but the management would prefer it if Henry’s knives are used for your food. Wood panelling, brass fittings and fixtures help create a period atmosphere.
In the restaurant begin your feast with a Hampton Court Seafood Crepe (thin crepe filled with creamed seafood) or try the Scottish Smoked Salmon (served with chopped onion, capers, chopped egg and creamed horseradish). Carnivorous diners will love entrees such as Fillet Mignon while devotees of the sea may wish to try The Mary Rose Treasures (spice-dusted scallops and jumbo shrimp skewers, served with a roasted wild mushroom stock and risotto rice). Henry’s also boasts a small sushi bar and a terrace with stunning ocean views.
The bar here is popular and offers a wide range of beers, wines, and cocktails. Beers on draft include Guinness, Foster’s, and Carlsberg. The pub menu includes Henry’s Famous Fish Chowder and British pub favourites like Bangers and Mash and Steak and Mushroom Pie.
On Sunday afternoons Henry VIII hosts one of Bermuda’s most popular and reasonably priced brunches. The menu features salads, appetisers (smoked salmon, shrimps, peppered mackerel etc.), cold meats, carved meats, hot foods (curry, steak and kidney pie, poached fish, roasted potatoes etc.), desserts and tea or coffee.
The restaurant and bar are open 7 days a week. Lunch is served noon to 4.30 pm and dinner from 6 pm to 10 pm. Sunday brunch runs from noon to 3 pm. In the summer entertainment is offered Thursday to Sunday from 10 pm till late. See the official website for details of what’s on.
The pub is owned by the Long Botham Boats Company. They also own the Robin Hood pub in Hamilton.
