The General Store Restaurant located on the main floor of the historic Hume Hotel has been Nelson's family restaurant for decades. We are open every day throughout the year for breakfast, lunch, dinner and offer a famous Sunday Brunch Buffet. The restaurant was renovated in 2017 and has been well-received by all of our guests.
