Description: The Sprig & Fern Milton St was voted Best Bar in NZ in 2012 and Best Bar in Nelson in 2013. The success of the craft beer tavern, owned by S&F Head Brewer Tracy Banner, has been down to the staff and the people who call the Milton St "Sprig" their local. The atmosphere is very welcoming, just like a big living room but without a loud TV to interfere with the chatting. All the S&F craft beers are on tap and carefully selected regional wines from NZ. A very popular range of food is available which is delivered piping hot to your table. Our style is very much English pub meets Kiwi tavern.If you are staying in Nelson and you enjoy excellent craft beer and company you have to make your way over to the Milton St Sprig & Fern tavern.

“Beer tasting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

My husband was treated to some local beer samples which he enjoyed. The staff were cheerful and friendly and although we didn't eat there the food looked good. Worth a visit especially if you like local beers.
