Description: The Sprig & Fern Tavern Tahuna is situated on Beach Rd just off the main coastal route into Nelson from Richmond. You will be hard pressed to find a bar with a more "outdoorsy" feel. Walk in through the iron gate and white picket fence and take a seat to make the most of the view or be in the shade from the warm Nelson sun.The full range of locally brewed S&F craft beer and cider is always on tap as well as seasonal special beers and the best of NZ wines. If you need a bite to eat we have a very tempting range of Indian inspired dishes that go really well with the award winning Pilsner.We are family friendly and have bicycle parking if this is your mode of transport.A very friendly welcome awaits from the staff and local drinkers at Sprig & Fern tavern at Tahuna.

A nice bar. Staff at bar were good. Sadly food did not match. Pizzas looked ok. Kofta were dry and over cooked, veggie kofta were bland. Two bowls of chowder served to the group were completely different. The first very thick, the second looked like milk.
Very poor food. A shame we wasted a night out with friends here.

After a long hot day travelling this was close by the motel. Good service, pizza ok rather than great, too much for me so "doggy bag" provided. Decent cider.

We visit Sprig & Fern every time we come to Nelson, it's a must. The beer is delicious and some of the best micro draft's I've had in NZ. They also usually have a band playing in the evenings which adds to the fun.

This heading covers 3 recent visits, one particular where when realizing I was a vegetarian offered me an off the menu vegi burger. Great friendly service, great location, good value for coin.
