“Great wood fired pizza. Some friends of ours renovated the building and courtyard a few years back and ran a restaurant there for 10 years. It is a hidden treasure in Bathurst. It's now a wood fired pizza /bar. Stunning again in summertime for lunch or dinner. Try and get a table in the courtyard if the weather's good.”
