The church bar is a bit of an institution in Bathurst and popular with Uni students and visitors alike. The atmosphere is greear although can be a but noisy inside when full. The outside area is nice in summer. Pizzas were cooked to perfection - its one of our favourites in Bathurst.

I used to love this bar but rarely visit now. The staff are rude and obnoxious. They are too caught up in themselves to provide even mediocre customer service. They are completely resting on their laurels and seem to be oblivious to the fact that a new (and much better) bar has opened in town. I have a huge problem... More

Great relaxed atmosphere with good selection of drinks and pizza. Pizzas were fantastic. Staff were helpful & friendly. Great coffee. Drinks were a little expensive.

The pizzas here are decent and well priced, often great deals available mixed with cocktails. The atmosphere is great too. However the service leaves a lot to be desired, you are left there at the doorway waiting to be seated for 5-10 minutes each time. Needs improvement

We were recommended to this place by a local and we were not disappointed! A beautiful rustic charm with cocktails that are made fresh and with care. My husband was very impressed that they name their pizzas after the streets in Bathurst. A lovely touch! We will be back if ever in Bathurst.

Very nice bar to hang out in for an evening, book a table if you are going on the weekend as it gets busy. Pizzas are delicious.

This is a great spot. Particularly in summer when you can sit in the outdoor area. There is nothing on the menu bar pizza ... So if you don't like pizza and the associated breads don't go. The pizzas are reasonably priced, but the cocktails are more expensive then city prices ...... Whilst they are great I do think they... More

Good atmosphere but the pizzas are disappointing. The pizza base is terrible. Good and interesting choice of toppings but the bases ruin the whole thing. Overpriced and not worth it. Service is friendly but slow.

Went for the weekend in Bathurst and friends took us to this place. From entering the place the ambiance was outstanding. Great and fast service and the food was to die for. Some of the best wood fired pizza I have ever had. Desert pizza is a must. Will go back when next here.
