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.

I have been here MANY times over the years and I don't believe I've ever had anything to eat that was actually bad. Having said that, this is the type of menu that my unadventurous mother and grandparents really love and I don't particularly mind. One actual problem that I have, though, is that even though they now offer gluten-free... More

Thank you for pointing that out. I agree that spelt buns should not be cosidered 'gluten-free' although they are quite low in gluten. When we put the Gluten Free menu out, we felt that most celiacs would know that about spelt buns but it should definately be clarified. We will make that change on the next Gluten Free menu print....

The food is good and the service is excellent. It misses a bit for me because the menu is so predictable. There is no adventure there.

I had a great time in Nelson as I always do when I visit. The Hume is my main stomping ground Mikes pub in my opinion is the the best in the city. The service, staff and food are all solid and the Music gigs that are brought in at their Spirit Bar make it the best in the Kootenays... More

We came on Sunday for a child birthday dinner, and we had really great service. The serving and kitchen staff went above the call of duty to smooth over my young son's food allergy issues and we really appreciated that. The food was great and we all had a memorable evening. Thank-you so much, we will of course be back!... More

The Hume offers a menu for everyone. There is something available for all ages and tastes. The food portions are generous, the selections are healthy and the price is fair. You have to try the General Store in the Hume Hotel!

Went to Mike's for dinner after being away from Nelson for the past few years. The place felt as comfortable, clean and awesome as it did a few years ago. They do a great job at maintaining a Heritage feel while keeping the place spic and span. Our server who I now unfortunately cannot remember her name was AWESOME!! We... More

My Husband and I got married last August and we had our reception at the Hume Hotel. We were absolutely blown away with the quality of food and service we received. The variety of items on the menu was great and they were happy to accommodate all of our requests. One of our dinner options was the new york 8oz... More
