Pleasant, quick service. Delicious berry cider, very crisp and perfect balance of berry flavours. Elegant decor and great music on sound system. Will come back next time I'm in Nelson.

We didn't have a chance to enjoy a meal at the Sprig & Fern, but we did stop by for some drinks. They have a lot of beer options, probably 15 or so on tap. They offered free samples, and we really enjoyed quite a few of their options. The best part though is that they offer beer to-go in plastic 2-liter bottles ... for the price of just 2 pints. Awesome deal, great beer. Definitely recommend!

The taste tray is a brilliant way of trying a range of beers and ciders without putting you over the limit to drive home :-)

This 'pub' had a nice ambiance. We arrived early evening and it was fairly quiet. The staff were helpful and attentive and were happy to give their recommendations. The food didn't disappoint.

The Sprig and Fern on Hardy Street in Nelson New Zealand was our favorite hangout in Nelson, New Zealand. The beer and wine selections are outstanding but the big attraction is the friendly staff and the live music in the evening. The owner, Lee Fern (no relation to the Sprig and Fern brand) is an accomplished composer and musician in his own right and has a wonderfully eclectic selection of music both live and on tape. The pub food is very good but one is also allowed to bring food in from the many surrounding restaurants. The pub provides plates, condiments and all else needed to enjoy the meal of choice! Why can't southern California have a place like this?? We will be back next year!
