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.

Earlier tonight we had a staff dinner party at the General Store in the Hume Hotel. Although I've eaten pretty much the whole menu as I am a local, I've never tried their desserts. My pregnant wife kept having reoccurring dreams of a decadent chocolate cake. THIS. WAS. IT!! Great cake. We are pondering if they have this cake on... More

Food and Cocktails are what we come here for. They both were fantastic. Service staff were friendly but a little distracted.

Recommended by friends, we made sure to visit our namesake the Hume Hotel for lunch while we were in Nelson. First lunch we had fish and chips and a pint of Nelson's finest brew. The setting in the "library" was awesome, service outstanding and the food was very, very good. The second time we visited a few days later we... More

Hume was recommended by a local as the place to go on Sunday around 8pm. Smaller community not a lot to choose from so was kind of iffy when I saw the place....Service was great-friendly and quick. We had the fish and the cabbage rolls and were not disappointed. They have a small deck and Blues music that night. Recommend... More

Our family has been eating here for 3 generations now. The food is pretty standard, but there is a good selection for people with varying dietary needs. We have 2 celiacs, a seafood allergy, a diabetic, and lactose intolerant, and they always make sure no one gets any cross-contamination in their meals. Very much appreciated.

Thanks for staying with us and offering up a review for our restaurant. I must say, for offering up food that is "amazing", you sure gave us a tough 3/5 score. It must have been our creaky elevator. We are modernizing the elevator in October. It operates on original 1920's technology and has been the most reliable equipment we have... More
