What's not to like? Great for catching up with friends, a romantic dinner, or stop for a drink at the historic bar and listen to live music...a guitarist the night we were there.

Hi Alyssa, this seems like an issue with Hume 2 Go. It's kind of too bad you are slamming us on the Library Lounge page. If you have any further problems, just give me a call. It would be way more productive than posting negative...More

Had dinner at the Library in May of 2017. My spouse and I had a very pleasant evening. Good service, good food with some variety from the usual pub fare available. All in, a nice dinner and we would go back.

We rec'd a credit for dining with our romance package. The food was terrific. I had the steak salad (gluten free) and my husband had the oriental bowl. Wonderful jazz music played while we dined. Great atmosphere.

You can go to the Hume Hotel website and there is a section called Menus. It is the same menu for all departments within the hotel!

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. There is a full Gluten-Free menu available. 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.
