Sprig & Fern Hardy Street - Nelson

Enjoy NELSON'S BEST BAR as voted by Nelsonians

Voted Best Bar in Nelson in the 2012 Wild Tomato Dine Out Awards.  We thank all our customers and staff who help make "the Hardy St Sprig" the friendly place to enjoy superb craft beer and local wines in Nelson.

Your “local” in Nelson City’s CBD

You will not find any distracting TV screens or flashing pokies in the Sprig and Fern Hardy St. You will find award-winning real craft beers brewed in our local brewery. Everyone will find a great place to socialise with a friend or a larger group enjoying Nelson’s nightlife.

Delicious food served from 12 noon…

You might just want a quiet coffee and cake in the real homely surroundings or a reasonably priced lunch with a beer. Stefano’s Pizzas can be ordered and delivered to the bar piping hot for you to enjoy with a well-earned beer.

Enjoy the Beer Garden – Summer or Winter!

You can drink and dine “al fresco” in the beer garden courtyard, nestled out of any wind, rain or baking sun, covered by the giant Sprig and Fern sail. Heaters keep it warm well into the evening so you can drink your beer outdoors, even at midnight!

Home from home

We want to make the Hardy St Sprig and Fern as comfortable and welcoming as possible. We have been honoured to receive the prestigious Best Bar Award in 2009 and 2010 at the Nelson Hospitality Awards.
