“Good food, value & atmosphere!”
Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I, together with 14 others spent the long weekend in Bellingen. We enjoyed an early dinner at No.5 & were pleasantly surprised by the tasty meals, the ability to serve all 16 of us within 5 minutes, the fabulous live music & bowled over by the value of our dinner. Everyone was pleased with their meal, whether it was a curry, burger or salad. We'll be back!

“Extremely unpleasant”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

We stopped into No 5 on a beautiful sunny afternoon for a drink. The tea was lovely, the service was poor, and after ruining my order they took it away, drank it and then charged me for it. When I asked why we had been charged the supervisor was confrontational and unprofessional. An extremely unpleasant end to an otherwise lovely day.

“Best vege burger ever”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

One of our favourite cafes in Bellingen, alongside The Purple Carrot. Food is fresh and local, as the sign says, and is very tasty indeed. Our favourite lunch item is the vege burger, packed full of fresh tasty vege goodness. No vege patties here, just pure vegetables! Everyone has to try their awesome hand cut chips. And then wash it all down with a glass of Bellingen Brewery's Harvest ale. Staff are friendly and if you are regulars like we are, you will be remembered :) Prices are reasonable for the high quality food. Outdoor seating for those lovely sunny days and indoor seating with a cosy fireplace for those wintery days. 5 Church St is also a local entertainment venue of an evening. For us this place is the heart and soul of Bellingen.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Me and my wife have been to no 5 church street for lunch a few times and found it to be one of the better spots to eat in belo.
So we thought we would give it a go for dinner and we were thoroughly dissapointed with the food, the cocktails and the service, we won't be back.

Hi there,

Sorry to hear that your 5 Church Street dinner experience wasn't on par with your previous lunch time experience. I can assure you that we are always striving to make every part of our business operate at the highest standard and it is difficult to ensure that every element of what we do is always maintained at the standard we have set and expect from ourselves & our team. I hope that you feel welcome to return to #5 again (for Dinner) and that you enjoy the essence of what we are all about.

Thanks for your review, hope to see you soon!

“Delicious and fun”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Really enjoyed my evening at No 5 - eating alone doesn't always feel great but the buzzy warm atmosphere and cosy environment made for a fun night. Loved seeing babies and elder folk alike throughout the course of the night. Very welcoming and was sad to leave.
