Friendly, independently owned Kiwi Taverns proudly serving Nelson’s Craft Beer.

We're all about genuine people, serving real craft beer in proper imperial pints.

We proudly serve the entire range of Sprig & Fern’s multiple award winning craft beers and ciders in proper imperial pints, but that's not the only thing that makes our Taverns a bit different. We have no TVs, pokie machines or pool tables in our taverns, so you can enjoy good old conversation and human interaction, along with classic pub snacks and food.

Your home away from home

It’s classic 'Kiwi' - egalitarian, homely and with a great sense of humour.

Sprig & Fern Taverns form part of the community, and the community forms a big part of us, so we respect that and we look after each other. We raise funds for local charities and good causes, and help preserve our heritage by restoring older, character buildings to house our Taverns. We’re small and personal, and encourage responsible drinking.

What they’re saying about us:

The warm, friendly and inviting atmosphere is complimented by the delicious food and wide range of seriously good beer. Thanks for your hospitality Peter and Sue!

Excellent selection of beer and cider, and love how you can bring food in from the neighbouring restaurants. The sunny courtyard will be popular this summer, but nice and cosy inside too if the weather doesn't cooperate. Best of all are the friendly, helpful staff.
