Great service and friendly staff. Food was tasty and sizeable. Try the grown up lemonade, it’s a winner.

The Sprig & Fern Tavern in Motueka is somewhat of a hidden gem set behind the busy main street. We are a traditional, friendly kiwi tavern with a bright, fresh interior. There are no TVs or pokies to distract you from enjoying the excellent craft beer and cider, delicious food and entertaining conversation.
