Description: The Hume Hotel has three different food outlets to eat in that offer the same menu and a vast array of food. A family restaurant called the General Store, an intimate fireside lounge featuring live jazz called the Library Lounge or a lively, old English-style bar called Mike's Place Pub. We cook up amazing steaks, pastas, seafood, the '100 Mile Burger', sandwiches, salads and homemade desserts. We are also known for a legendary Sunday Brunch that goes from 11am - 2pm every Sunday. We are popular for our consistency, generous portions, food quality and reasonable prices all to be enjoyed in a character atmosphere that was built in 1898. There is no place like the Hume.

The atmosphere is great in this pub! Food & service is bar none. Its a laid back kind of place where hippies & rednecks can mix for a good time. Get the nachos, they are so good and very filling. Local beer is refreshing and tasty @ this pub.

Love this place in the middle of town and food is really good as well as accommodation. Breakfast was delicious with a special every morning and limitless cups of coffee. Main bar is good but the "library bar" is brilliant, good feel and vibe. Food is well priced and the buffalo wings very popular. We stayed in accommodation this time... More

I'm a fan of the Hume's basic menu, comfort food. Nothing fancy. A good place to take elderly visitors for dinner and dated ambiance. Very good service.

The Hume Hotel runs an excellent kitchen. My coworkers and I go to the Library Lounge often; we never get bored of the menu as there is always an excellent rotation of lunch specials, which which are consistently delicious. The service (arguably the best in Nelson) is impeccable. Between the staff, the skills of the cooks and the atmosphere, every... More

The Hume Hotel, The Library, The Spirit Bar, and Mike's Place; this is the gamut of authentic hospitality, entertainment, food and drink in Nelson. Mountain chalet with a metropolitan vibe, I'd recommend this spot to anyone visiting Nelson. Hell I'm trying to get Robin Williams up there right now! You have one of the best kitchens in town offering up... More

the library is a wonderful room to eat in . The hotel being as old as it is makes it even more beautiful to sit amongst the old wood and the view from the large windows is wonderful.

Great food and service. If your cold get the table near the fireplace. Like it so much the first night we came back again the next day.

That's great to hear thank you. The Library Lounge fireplace is truly the heart of the hotel. What many people don't realize is that the fireplace was covered in drywall for many years. When my parents renovated the hotel in 1980, nobody knew what was behind the drywall and, lo and behold, they discovered a beautiful, original fireplace. It's hard... More

If you like a great pizza in a pub with excellent atmosphere, Mike's Place in The Hume Hotel is a must. Mike's is the busiest place in Nelson, and it has been for decades due to the high level of service, food, and hospitality that the Martin family has maintained for a very long time. Even though the decor is... More

We were at the end of our stay in Nelson and were looking for a good place to have a relaxing meal. The library room at the Hume hotel was perfect. Good ambiance with a jazz guitarist and low lighting. The food was fresh, tasty and good servings. We had a wonderful dinner here.
