Steak done perfect medium rare with a great salad and a mountain of crispy potatoes. Salt and pepper squid was delicious. Cider and beers are good too. Cosy setting.

My husband and I had dinner here after hiking the Abel Tasman. We enjoyed our meal and the beer. Service was good and the price average. It was a full restaurant so maybe the locals like it also.

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.
