Delicious Food Menu

Locally Brewed Craft Beer

Brewed at the Sprig & Fern Brewery in Richmond, Nelson, our beer is made right here in our region –  it only has to travel 11km from the brewery to our taps!

With a great range of 20 craft beers & ciders on tap, plus more in bottles, and including special Limited Releases, come down and sample our NZ famous beer.

Lunch, Dinner, Bar Snacks

With a full menu from lunch through dinner, the Sprig Hardy has something for everyone.

Whether a sit down mean, or bar snacks with your favourite pint, we have a varied menu that will suit your needs.

Don’t forget our kitchen is open late for pizzas and bar snacks 7 days a week.

Open 7 Days till Late

When you think beer, wine, lunch, dinner, weekend – we want you to think Sprig on Hardy.

That’s why we’re open 7 days till late.  You can rely on us to quench your thirst, give you a great meal, tidy up the dishes after, and all for a great price while you have a great time.

Charity Quiz Night

Our Wednesday night Charity Quiz is not only a great night out, but has helped support hundreds of Nelson charities, clubs and good causes over the years.

Running from March till end November, get here by 7pm to grab a seat for an 8pm start.  Entry proceeds go to the host cause.


We love helping you make your function special and can accommodate small to medium size groups for Business, Club and Social occasions.  We work hard to make your time at the Sprig something to remember.
