Same good food provided at all the restaurants/pub located at this location. Pub is great with pool tables and plenty of tv’s playing the day’s games.

Looked for a quiet, relaxing place with exceptional food and definitely found it here. The charm of the old library, the excellent service and fantastic meal were all first rate.

We'd been driving all day and just coming off a week of wedding preps for our daughter and were driving home. Really, really needed a very good steak, a bottle of wine and a chance to relax. The Library more than met our expectations. Best...More

Ordered the buffalo burger and yam fries, enough to feed 3 people, great taste, there are many more exotic things on the menu but I fancied this this day. Have been here many times never disappointed. Great ambience.

Thanks for the review...while we don't have the Buffalo Burger any more, it may have been our Farmer's Daughter Burger that we are featuring for Burger Month which has been a big hit. We are glad you liked it.

Stopped by for a lunch recently, while on a business trip in Nelson. The room is very historic, lots of statues, old photograph and antique decor. Not exactly my 'cup of tea' but the food was good, lots of variety on the menu and our...More

Beautiful room, dark and cosy. Food is very average - I had the salmon special and it was overcooked and tasteless. Service was erratic.

The Library Lounge is at the heart of the Hume Hotel. Located just off the front lobby, The Library has a cozy, parlour-like atmosphere with a replica of the original Hume Hotel bar (complete with brass) polished and prepped for your visit. Caryatids and original moldings decorate the interior, as does the original monumental brick hearth and fireplace that warms the room. Full restaurant meal service is offered, as are a selection of wines, beer and spirits to complement the live jazz and other music featured nightly.
