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.

Reviewed 4 February 2014

Went out for a nice drink in Nelson's beach suburb Tahuna, and this bar offered the fun atmosphere we were looking for, as well as some delicious brews to try. Good work and we will be back.

“Great, busy little pub”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

Excellent, friendly service. Loved the cheeky chips and dip option. That is inspired! I'd love to see a larger selection of food available in the future.

“Great beer and chicken tikka”
Reviewed 16 November 2013 via mobile

Went for a quick beer after work and ordered a small chicken tikka snack (which we were told by the bar staff is made by Mango). Excellect tikka and plenty of it for $9.99. Seem to have a good selection of decent differnt pub food and snacks. Great location and atmosphere. Service friendly (has not been great in the past and felt somewhat talked down to on past visits! ). Great beer as normal. Well done...a really relaxing 30 minute wind down after work.

“Great Location - Tahuna Sprig and Fern”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

We went on a quiet day for lunch. It's in a perfect location, off the main road and close to the playing fields and the sea is just a quick walk away. Lots of nice indoor or outdoor places to sit.
There's a good selection of local beers and the service was friendly and quite fast.
The pizza we ordered was a bit strange, not crisply or particularly well cooked. The kumara chips were great! We would go back though as its a good place for a casual meeting.

“A great pub to visit!”
Reviewed 21 March 2013

Located close to Tahunanui beach, this is a great pub to go and just relax. The layout is open with some nice seats looking out on the large recreation field across the street. All the folks that work there are real friendly and they have all the great Sprig & Fern beers! Definitely a place to visit if coming to Nelson!
