Really helpful staff here who know their fine and extensive range of beers. The seating outside in the courtyard is a lovely place to eat. The pizzas are really good (with "gourmet" toppings and each one named after a Bathurst street) and I also had a nice shiraz, but the beers were memorably good.

The pizzas were great and provided a amazing variety of pizza. I found it was a fantastic atmosphere for dinner with friends on the weekend. Drink prices are expensive but not any more than the local pub. If you can, you should go.

The Church Bar is one our most frequented restaurants in Bathurst. Not once out of every time we have been there have we left disappointed. The pizza is delicious, with a crispy thin base and fresh, exciting toppings. Drinks are expensive though. The ambience is great both inside and outside. Sitting in the outside area on a warm evening at... More

We spent a month in Australia and this was the best, most imaginative pizza that we've ever tasted. Located in an 1850s church, and with a beautiful walled garden for balmy days, Church Bar is the choicest spot in town to eat. The atmosphere is mellow and welcoming, and the big pizzas simply delicious - everything from crocodile to kangeroo... More

Had the special lunch menu - $40 for two, which included an entree salad, a large gourmet pizza (ours was lamb shanks and fetta) to share, and choice of a coffee or a beer. Pretty good value all up, and the old church has a nice ambience. Service was OK too.

To sit in the courtyard of the old Church School House at dusk was a incredible experience. Amazing traditional and completely unconventional pizza - we had a delicious "Ribbon Gang" - pepperoni and buffalo mozzarella, "Brilliant" - five spiced duck and the "Havannah" - tandoori chicken. The wood fired pizzas were all cooked to perfection on handmade thin and crispy... More
