What we are about

Nelson’s Craft Beer on tap

We proudly serve a selection of Sprig & Fern’s multiple award-winning Craft Beers and Ciders. We also stock a range of quality wines and spirits.

A community venue

We provide a welcoming, community environment – unpretentious and easy going. It’s classic Kiwi, sociable and with a  great sense of humour.

Real beer and real people

We have no TV’s, pokies and pool tables in our tavern, so great conversation and human interaction abounds. It’s a refreshingly real experience.

We must be doing something right

Real Kiwi Tavern

We are the 11th venue in the Sprig & Fern family and are thrilled to be so supported in the Seatoun community.

HNZ Member

The Little Sprig Seatoun is an active member of Hospitality New Zealand, proudly responsibly creating the right atmosphere for guests and staff alike.

Rigger to Take-Away

We have an off license, so you can have your favourite beer and cider to take-away!  Perfect for an afternoon on the boat or beach.

Real Craft Beers and Ciders

We may be small but we have heaps of flavour.

We cater for a number of tastes whether you’re craving a bevvy that light, dark, or something in between.  Keep a look out on our chalkboards for seasonal releases and tap changes – we like to keep it interesting and exciting.

Take home a rigger

We have an off licence, so you can take away your favourite beer or cider.

We supply 2 litre plastic riggers, or you can bring your own in to be refilled.

We are more happy to keep it in the fridge for you while you stay and have a quick pint.

Food and bar snacks available

We offer a menu that’s just as warming as our atmosphere.  Serving your favourite comfort foods, our menu is unpretentious and believe it should be just as delicious as the beer.

Hand-cut chips with Sprig and Fern IPA ailoi, Salt and Pepper Squid, Flatbreads, Burgers, flavourful and simple is what we do best.

We are offering some of our favourite Nelson wines in addition to some delicious wine offerings from the Martinborough region.

We also work with Rich Coffee Roasters who roast beans in Newtown, t Leaf T who hand-blend teas in Petone, and Almighty Juice, an organic company that helps support garden education in schools around Wellington.
