Description: The Sprig & Fern Tavern in Motueka is somewhat of a hidden gem set behind the busy main street. We are a traditional, friendly kiwi tavern with a bright, fresh interior. There are no TVs or pokies to distract you from enjoying the excellent craft beer and cider, delicious food and entertaining conversation.

“More than just great beer!”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

As we inspected the menu of this funky Tavern on our amble about Motueka the proprietor Sue made us very welcome. We decided to return and it was an inspired choice. We had a very enjoyable time in the relaxed and friendly indoor outdoor bar. With about 16 craft beer and ciders to choose from we certainly found that variety is the spice of life. The fish and chips ( Gurnard) were delicious!

“Super nice pizza, brewed beers and service!!”
Reviewed 24 February 2014 via mobile

We were recommended to go to this place for great pizza in Motueka and we'll happily pass that recommendation on :) Not only was the pizza awesome, but the service was excellent and the atmosphere very friendly, and it was really nice to try their "taster tray" of their brewed beers - many of which were simply superb! Enjoy :)

“Love the lack of pokies and love the pilsner!!”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

We went here for beer and wine and pizza. The beer was excellent, the wine was average (served too cold), the pizza was very good, the service was excellent, but the best part was the family vibe of this pub, love it!
