Excellent service. Great bar food. Not the usual deep fried food. Quite unexpected. We'll definitely be back as long as they keep the excellent chef.

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.

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.
