Tiny building and best visited out of the "rush" hours. Great service and friendly staff but when busy will be cramped and uncomfortable. Pricy too but worth it to say you have visited

Love these tea rooms. My partner and I went in around 12.30pm on a Sunday afternoon and were seated straight away. We couldn't decide between a sweet and savory option so decided to order both and share both. Good job we decided to share because they're big buns! We ordered the club sandwich and the milk jam, they were both... More

The oldest house in Bath, it has a tradition in serving good food, all based on buns. Beside the excellent dishes and good variety of beverages, the house also hosts a very interesting museum. The staff is kind and helpful, making the time spent here a very good one. One should taste the "Plum duff", a traditional dessert made with... More

We ate in the restaurant one evening and enjoyed a delicious meal in the unusual surroundings. The food was excellent as was the service and we would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Bath. It was one of our favourites.

A quirky tea room in one of the oldest houses in Bath with an exceptionally long queue for a tea room. Have an English afternoon tea with the famous Sally Lunn bun (a soft bun, or cake?) and choose from savoury to sweet toppings. I've tried the chocolate (rich chocolate, not too sweet, perfect) and milk jam (super sweet, but... More

Quirky and different tea rooms! Smashing cuppa (real tea) and interesting Buns indeed. Access is difficult up the stairs due to the nature of the building.

We visit Sally Lunn's every time we visit Bath and we love it. The tea rooms provide excellent refreshments and food. Sometimes (during holidays) you may have to wait for a table but it is worth it if it is only for 10 minutes or so (we have never waited longer than that). We always take a little look around...

You can visit the museum separately from the Sally Lunn tea shop. It is downstairs and has the history of Sally Lunn. It is a bit small but has some items which give you a sence of what things were like when this girl who we now know as Sally Lunn came to Bath. The shop here is good and... More
