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.

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

We were staying in Nelson at the Hume Hotel for 2 days. On the second night my brother suggested the Library Restaurant in the hotel. I was hesitant as it looked a bit pub like, somewhat old/dark and I wanted a really good meal. Trip Advisor reviews influenced us to go, and we were not let down. The server helped... More

My husband and I,our friends and well, everyone around here knows, their food is consistently on point. In all our years of living here, we have never had a problem with any of our meals. Their connection with their customers, new or old, is stellar, as is their quality of food and service.

We loved this place. It is an old hotel that has been lovingly cared for. Rich wood mouldings and trim throughout. I had seen pictures online and they do NOT do it justice. We had dinner there one night, and the food and service were both good.

I recently had a fantastic evening with friends from Victoria. Great selection of local beer and the pizza was some of the best I have had in quite a while. The service was also great and did not wait at all for refills or food. The servers were friendly, especially Jill, she seemed to know the menu in and out... More

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!
