Description: The Sprig & Fern Tavern in Motueka is somewhat of a hidden gem set behind the busy main street. We are a traditional, friendly kiwi tavern with a bright, fresh interior. There are no TVs or pokies to distract you from enjoying the excellent craft beer and cider, delicious food and entertaining conversation.

“Great food with local feel and warm welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

It was quiet on the night I ate at the Spring & Fern, but the staff gave me a very warm welcome. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. Not a huge choice on the menu, but the quality is very good indeed

“Unbelievably tasty and fantastic value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

As a pub goes I just wish this was my local either in the UK or my temporary NZ residence. A range of tasty beers, decent wine selection and probably some of the best pub food I have ever had.

Menu isn't the most extensive (burgers, pizzas etc) but it does the simple things to a surprisingly high standard. The burger actually rivalled one I had at one of my visits to The Living Room in Manchester. Staff were also very friendly. Made even more of a pleasant experience when the bill came. I would highly recommend this for a visit if you are in Motueka or near and if you are driving there is a handy option of 2 litre takeaway beers!
