Sorry to hear that you weren't happy with the Cabbage Rolls. Hopefully you let the server know so they could have adjusted the bill or got you something else...They have been a staple on the menu for years and it's not often we get complaints...More

We ordered specials for lunch and couldn't have been happier. The food was great in portion size (not too big nor too small) & in flavor. The waitstaff was very amiable. We will go back.

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.
