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.

We had dinner in the Library and the food and service were both top notch. Good quality food with reasonable prices makes it a good value. The night we ate there they had a two piece jazz band which was a bonus. I would recommend this eatery

Really enjoyed an excellent lunch while watching one of the semis. Great friendly service from Jodi, good and hilarious atmosphere from the local fans and Keno players. Full range of Nelson Brewing Co beers on tap. The mexican chicken dish was superb. Wonderful massive high def screen. Well done all!

I just walked in the door from another excellent time meeting friends for lunch at the Hume Hotel! I can't say enough Great adjectives for, not only the tasty food, but the incredible service by Shauna Long!

We visit Nelson every summer and eating at the Hume is always a must. Our server Adam (this last visit) was friendly and professional and Richard always comes for a chat. Burgers, borscht, the beef dip and the cabbage rolls are all favourites. When the fries are ordered crispy they are my favourite of any restaurant. Always a great place... More

Thanks for the glowing review. Richard is a General Store veteran while Adam has been with us for almost one full year. These guys really know how to hold it down when it's busy and always with a smile. We are lucky to have them on board. Thanks for coming in. More

The best meals we had while in the Crawford Bay/ Nelson B.C.area were in The Library lounge in the historic Hume Hotel. Not only was the food excellent, but the service was friendly -- the kind of natural, unassuming interaction you expect in a small Canadian town. But, of course, Nelson is a B.C. gem ( and I don't mean... More

On June 27th 2013 my Aunt Daisy, took myself (nephew Fred) and (wife Joanne) once again to the library or lunch.

We enjoyed our dinner at the Library restaurant at the Hume Hotel in Nelson. It was very crowded and we had to wait a while for a table but we enjoyed sitting out on the patio while we waited. The meal was very good and service was just great.

Our dinner at the Library in the Hume Hotel started well. It was a cold evening, we were by the fireplace and an excellent Jazz singer was performing. The menu provided nothing too interesting so I chose the cabbage rolls - given the Doukabor history of the area. The cabbage rolls were just okay. The accompanying salad contained sour tomatoes,limp... More

I was really taken aback to read that you thought the wine list was 'pitiful'. We actually just launched our new wine list in May. You are right, the Okanagan Valley has many beautiful wines to choose from - that is why we focused on that region more than any other. Over half of the wine list are Okanagan wines... More

Our most recent visit to 'The Hume' was an open house for a significant birthday. The event was a huge success, primarily due to the expertise of Greg, the catering manager.

Mike's Place Pub was a fine stop for a casual lunch and a brew. Service was quick, our server was excellent and the food was plentiful for the price. A good choice.
