Lovely place to visit if you are in Bath. Queues can be really long, but if you want to just visit the museum, no need to queue. The adjoining Bun house sells very tasty buns - loved them.

Lovely, original building, informative staff. We brought buns but didn't eat in. I thought the museum would be bigger but I could see why it's small, it's all the original building. Worth a visit.

We visited for the famous bunn and did not disappoint, I have with the cinnamon butter, very nice and good tea, great with the history attached to the place, would visit again. If you are going to Bath it is worth a visit and they do more than just the bunn. Good lunch options

A worthy addition to the famous Sally Lunns teashop this museum is in the basement of the shop. Gives a fascinating insight into life in previous times. Make sure that you sample the buns upstairs though!

interesting menu on famous Sally Lunn buns. Tasty but very slow in arriving, they don't have a lift and my mums wheelchair wouldn't fit through the doors. The staff were helpful and we managed to get a table near the doors.

Was very excited to visit this shop as had such great reviews, however was let down by the product and service. I ordered a Welsh rarebit special with mushrooms and bacon.

Stopped mid afternoon for tea. Excellent food, good price and not skimpy at all. They even have gluten and dairy free versions.

This is a museum within the basement of a separately reviewed restaurant of the same name. This museum is a gem, and the only place in the city you can buy Sally Lunn's buns for takeaway and unique teas. It's a nice place to pop in while you are waiting in the queue during a busy day and see the... More

Tour is fairly average however the food is great:) They do lovely buns sweet or savoury and it's good value for money. Tables are quite close together however it's a nice atmosphere and worth seeing!
