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.

“Need a hard copy menu”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

We went in and enjoyed a cider and beer. Lovely setting and would have been happy to stay for something to eat. We asked the bar man if he had a food menu and was directed to a blackboard that we could not read as there was a group of people in front of it. We then asked a waitress what food they had and she quickly rattled off a few options but was rather vague. Still people were stood in front if the blackboard so we gave up and left. If there had been a paper menu we would have stayed for the rest of the evening.

“Excellent wine selection”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

Cute little pub- Awesome live music and great atmosphere. The Menu was average, be good to see a few more options than Pizza and chips but the Wine List made up for the lack of choice in the food!

“Great location and drinks”
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.
