The Church Bar made our overnight stay in Bathurst a great success dinner-wise. Excellent pizza, good atmosphere, reasonably priced. We almost didn't find it, tucked away and no street signage, but glad we did. The one complaint was that there was not much choice for vegetarian options, I know it's the country and all, but there are more of us around these days. Perhaps they would have made any of the really interesting combinations meat-free had I asked? Anyway, a good place to be in Bathurst, highly recommended.
Over priced but really good on Sunday after 5pm- if your a student - two for one pizzas! At other times (and if you aren't a student) generally expect to pay $20-25 for a pizza. They also do a good happy hour with $9 cocktails. Ambiance is five star - it is an old church with an open kitchen and lots of candles and wax. Lots of indoor and outdoor seating but it gets very busy, recommend booking.
Pizza and beer in a church is an unlikely pairing. But you will it at Church Bar, a pizzeria located in the oldest church building in Bathurst. We visited for dinner on a weeknight.
I love the atmosphere and decor of the place. There is a beautiful courtyard, perfect for the warmer weather. The inside dining area is contemporary and inviting. Sit close to the bar with the large groups for a bit of noise and liveliness. Or head towards the back of the restaurant for a candle-lit and more intimate dining experience.read more
