Love the dessert pizza.

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.

Second time out to this bar for night out with friends. Pizzas have good toppings which are on trend with flavours and are reasonably priced. Service time was appropriate even though it was very busy. Espresso cocktail was divine and good choices available on the drinks menu and again reasonably priced, Setting is vibrant and easily accessible making for a... More

Great range of delicious food fired pizzas. Enjoyed the tandoori chicken and lamb shank pizzas (two pizzas not one!). It's also a pretty trendy location with a great ambience and unobtrusive service.

What a hidden treasure! It was hidden up a little alley, but right in the centre of town. We wished we could eat everything on the menu as it all sounded great. We decided on the pork pizza with a nice wine and wanted to stay longer. Lovely atmosphere, great, great food and good wines ... could life be any... More

Myself and 9 others went out to tea here for a very special occasion and spent $110 for 5 very small, thin pizzas with minimal toppings (GOURMET I think they call them) and when we asked about a deal for more food the staff and management couldn't have cared less. Very disappointed and we left and had another meal elsewhere.

Have tried almost all of the pizzas on the menu and they are all really nice. They also have some good beers on tap that are not your usual selection. Great place to relax.

Went in a large group with the deal being $25 for all you can eat. The table consisted of families at one end and younger people at the other. Majority of pizzas ended up at the younger end and when we asked for pizzas at our end the waitress was was incredibly rude and threw the pizzas on the table.... More
