Our 1st target, having driven into Bath was the Roman Baths, but, when we arrived the queue was around the block, so, in the hope that things would improve with time, we headed to Sally Lunns, another of the Bath locations on our wish list. Initially, the plan was to have some tea and a Bath bun, however, on arrival,... More

We decided to visit Sally Lunn's museum on our recent visit to Bath because what we had heard. Worth a visit. There was a queue out of the door when we arrived but these people were waiting for the restaurant so do check as we managed to walk past and straight down stairs to the museum. Very small so will...

Worth a visit from the tourist perspective and given its history but service was a little slow but remains good value.

small and low ceilings, I am 6 foot 5 inches tall which proved to be an issue. Buns are very good though.

Do visit the museum if you are in Bath as it will only take five minutes of your time and does not cost. Otherwise you'll be curious about the hype. On Saturday afternoon there was a big queue from the entrance. Fortunately these were people queuing to eat the sally lunn bun in the cafe. This costs just under a... More

I agree there is a lot of hype about the buns, & being wheat & gluten intolerant I was unable to try them personally but my companion did & was most impressed. We had a delicious 3 course early dinner in the restaurant, the service was good, the food was yummy, and it was very atmospheric. It is very "snug"... More

Me and my mother visited the museum part of Sally Lunn's, with no intention of buying a bun at all, but the warm welcome and amazing tour we received from the lovely lady downstairs was so brilliant that we came back for afternoon tea. I have to say that we did not think the buns looked particularly amazing but were... More

Sally Lunn's is too hyped up. It's not that great. The food is expensive for what it is and the buns aren't even that nice. It's the kind of place you go just to say that you went!

The museum is very tiny, as is the house, but they sure pack a lot into it. The whole house/eatery is part of the museum, and the girl who served us told us the amazing story of Sally Lunn. The easy buns gave me a reminder of the good old Canadian "Beavertails" and made me just a bit more homesick.... More
