We were in Bathurst for the night and reading Trip Advisor thought we would give this place a go. The pizza was one of the best ever (and we have tasted a few). Salad nice. Wine good. Ambience great. We sat inside in the bar area and then moved out to the courtyard to enjoy the live music and... read more

I lived in Bathurst for 5 years. I love Church Bar. It's a great restaurant set in an old cathedral with a beautiful courtyard. Pizza's are not greasy and come in all types of exotic flavours from rabbit and croc to a nacho pizza. The staff are friendly and easy going, and the wait on pizza is not too long.... More

My daughter chose The Church Bar for her 21st birthday dinner.It was just a small gathering of 13.A great variety of pizzas. We had originally booked for the outside area but due to a weather change moved inside which was unfortunate with 4 active kiddies. Atmosphere was nice as always but my only complaint would be that there was a... More

Work function elected to go for the $25 per person all you can eat pizza deal. Not just any pizza, gourmet pizza and it kept coming. It's a bit yuppie and noisy for me and the drinks are expensive but I liked the pizza. You have to read the menu to see just how gourmet these pizza's are, it might... More
