“New owners = welcoming, warm and wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

New owners of the Fern Tree Tavern have made the necessary changes to make this place warm, wonderful and welcoming. The best change is obviously staff who are happy to see you, rather than chasing cars out of the parking lot (true story!). Many improvements to cleanliness, food and ambiance and more to come.

Also, the addition of live bands, cafe and convenience shop items, and neighborhood events make this place a great place to eat a massive parmie, buy the newspaper, sip a glass of wine and generally hang out in a cool and ferny spot.

In short, I am no longer embarrassed to bring visiting friends and family here. I like to stop here after a hike on the nearby pipeline track and refuel with a coffee and slide of hummingbird cake, which is truly ambrosia of the gods!
