Huge range of beers on tap that all the staff are knowledgable about. Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere, yummy food and always a crowd on weekends. Ben the bartender deserves a special mention for his work. #beardgamestrong

Right at the heart of Nelson City CBD is the Hardy St Sprig and Fern Tavern. A full range of natural, locally brewed craft beers and regional wines are available to go with a mouth watering selection of pub food including traditional English pork pies. Regular live music at the weekends and quiz nights during the week. No TVs, pool tables or pokey machines and we are totally cycle friendly if you have been out on the great Nelson trails. If you are in Nelson and enjoy a friendly pub atmosphere and excellent beer you have to visit the Hardy St "Sprig".
