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.

Our Quiz Night on a Tuesday night is extremely popular and each month we support different local groups to help with their fundraising cause.

What we are about

A Friendly Tavern

This is a real friendly local tavern and garden bar where we know our customers by name, and we have a lot of laughs. We welcome new customers and our regulars alike.

18 Taps of Craft Beer

This is the closest tavern to the Brewery where all our beer is made, so it doesn’t get any fresher than this! We have 18 taps of Sprig & Fern’s finest, plus all Nelson wines.

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.
