Great place on a cold winters day

A great choice of pizzas and a decent selection of craft beers. Go for the table near the fireplace to ward off the winter chills. Service is friendly and quick

I'm so envious. My much country town has nothing anywhere near this stylish despite its larger population. This bar rivals anything I've seen in Sydney and Melbourne for style and atmosphere. I visited for pre dinner drinks on a Monday, which was nice and quiet, I imagine it gets busy on weekends.

What can I say, dark tucked away and mind blowing pizza, this place will impress, from the moment you walk in and every mouthful......

The pizza (called "Russell"on the menu) was seriously good. One of the best I've ever had in my life!

The pizzas were excellent and the atmosphere was great. We sat inside ( it was -2c outside) in a large group and the food just much better than we anticipated and varied. Even the hardened Bathurstites sitting in the garden around the fire were having a great time.

The pizzas are great and a topping for everyone from kangaroo and crocodile to the old favourites like prawn and chicken. Good value and nice wine and boutique beers.

An out of the way place to dine, easy to find. Warm and welcoming atmosphere. good food and service. Have been twice and pizzas and wine always of a high standard. You can sit inside or eat in the courtyard, a pleasure which ever you choose.

I've been to Church Bar a number of times over the past 4 years and am never disappointed. The cocktails and pizza are always excellent, with changing pizza specials (though I generally order the same pizzas). The ambiance is amazing, with live acoustic music sometimes. The candles and fairy lights set in an old church make this romantic as well... More

We stopped in here on a quick stop in Bathurst. It was lovely to sit in the court yard in the sun drinking a glass of wine and dining on a tasty pizza. Loved the ambience and would definitely stop in again.
