We are regular customers here but I have to say their new menu is the best so far. We love coming and enjoying a nice cold lager and quite often end up staying for dinner. Great job team keep up the great work.

Great place to put back a few cold ones. Excellent and delicious beer selection. Hard to not try them all. Spring & Fern also offers some delicious food. The pizza is my favorite.

Lovely little micro brewery one of two in nelson we went too. Many beers on tap and different types. Especially liked the mango and lime cider and the fact you can buy bottles to take away.

Decided to visit after reviewing previous reviews. So ordered the burger and tasting tray of beer. The burger was a let down. Someone here recommended the burger but I was disappointed. Burger Wisconsin or burger fuel or gone burgers make these burgers look like rubbish....More

Called for a cool beer after a long walk on the beach. The place has a great vibe and an extensive range of craft beers. Sitting outside in the sun, watching the world pass by, with a cold beer - what can be better?

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.
