Queen Street Sprig & Fern Tavern, Richmond
The nearest bar to the Brewery.
Sprig & Fern Upper Queen is the first Sprig & Fern Tavern and is located in Richmond. The tavern was recently refurbished and is a hub for the local community. Full of good conversation, award winning Sprig & Fern beers and ciders on tap, local wines and freshly made food.
The tavern has a dog friendly sunny outdoor garden bar area and a generous sized car-park at the rear of the tavern.
