We read about this bar in the Central West Lifestyle magazine and finally had a chance to call in for lunch on our way back to Sydney. It took a moment or two to find Ribbon Gang Lane but well worth the effort. What a great pizza and quite different to any one we have had before .. we chose... More

There woodfired pizzas are amazing. They have the perfect base and toppings are fresh. They have unusual pizzas such as there crocodile pizza. They also have fabulous dessert pizzas. The restaurant itself is funky and atmosphere is good. They get really busy, so be sure to make a booking. We go there often when traveling to our property in Oberon... More

We love popping into Churchbar for a pizza and beer. A Saturday lunch after shopping, dinner with friends, or an off the cuff choice for an early dinner. Always great. Love the selection of draught beers, local and afar. A good wine range. But of course the pizzas are delicious, with toppings like duck, crocodil, and a nutella dessert pizza... More

One of the problems with Bathurst is that often it is hard to have a meal after 8.30pm but the Church Bar and Woodfired Pizza does do late meals and they are great value. The pizzas are quirkily named after the streets in Bathurst and offer unique and interesting toppings. Their salads are also excellent and their wine list is... More

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.

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
