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.

We're still yet to have a bad bit of food here - the shrimp poppers are my absolute favourite! Love the friendly staff, excellent selection of beers, and wonderful atmosphere.

With a range of casual indoor and outdoor seating the Sprig & Fern in Tahunanui is a great venue for one of those long overdue catch up with friends. There’s the extensive collection of beers and cider on tap plus and a variety of food on the menu including snacks, burgers and pizza. We had the lamb and beetroot pizza - delicious.

One of my favourite spots in Nelson! Lovely little pub with a nice outdoor seating area at the front, perfect for a cold crisp one in the sun. Always head down after a day at the beach or a couple with friends after dark! The latest draw for me though has been burger Tuesday... a choice of 3 burgers and a tap beer or house wine for $20! I opted for the lamb burger special this time around; seasoned lamb patty, minted smashed peas, feta and garlic aioli, served with rustic chunky chips. Delicious! The chef was more than happy to answer our questions about the recipe too! We’re always really looked after by the staff here. Thanks again guys!!

Ate here with some friends after a tip off from a local. The selection of craft beers available made us very happy customers, 18 taps to choose from! Great beer, great food, great atmosphere, and can’t praise the staff enough for the service! Renae looked after us and made us feel very welcome, giving some spot on recommendations on what to eat and drink. We were also advised there’s a quiz night on a Thursday, so we’ll definitely be back for that! Would recommend this place to anyone, very happy customers!

Popped in here yesterday with some friends for a cold cider in the sun. A lady had an accident across the road and I went over to help. One of the staff (possibly the manger)came running over to support the lady too. He went above and beyond by running over to the doctor surgery to get a nurse. The lady was upset about her fruit being left in the car and he assured her he would keep it safe in his fridge. We will definitely be back for some more cold ciders!
