Nice little museum.

Was a nice little museum, with lots of information. Great to do if you have a spare 10 mins whilst in the area. Staff were very friendly.

Really enjoyed my visit, 2nd time with family from the Netherlands. The first visit was with my French friend Delphine in March. We had tasty Buns, mine was a welsh rarebit with bacon and was delicious. We enjoyed the history of the place and looked at the museum.

Was a little bit disappointed! Very busy although the staff were still quite efficient. I had a bun with the chocolate butter. The actual bun was nice but the chocolate butter could have been better.

This is dinky. We had a little trip into the basement to visit the museum after eating the most delicious Sally Lunn bun. We had a ginger butter and cinnamon butter bun. Mmm, I can taste it now. Not to be missed on a visit to Bath and you can take buns home from the museum too for a small... More

We heard about this museum/restaurant and had to go, and as we expected there was a small queue but we weren't waiting too long before we were seated downstairs. The waiter was very polite and knowledgeable and the choice of food on offer was very good, not as badly priced as I was expecting, most of what we had was... More

Two minutes spent in the basement museum followed by the delights of Sally Lunn's buns. Forget about the decor and focus on the food. A fantastic selection of savoury and sweet buns to satisfy just about everyone's taste. More of a meal than a snack except for the largest of appetites. Deeeeelicious lemon curd and cream bun!!.. and no queuing... More

Steeped in history, what an amazing story to read about and visit , the actual museum is very small and you have to have the Sally Lunn bun to really appreciate it, very interesting and enjoyable.

A little charm hidden below street level. A small glimpse into the past of Sally Lunn. The museum takes 5 minutes and situated with the shop. Did not have time to eat in the house but was glad you could purchase take away buns - delicious!

We had heard and read about this place for a while, so a whistlestop tour of Bath gave us the excuse needed to visit. A pot of delicious tea and a cinnamon butter SLB, and then we ventured downstairs to the museum....AMAZING. Honestly, being an enthusiastic couple when it comes to history, we were so appreciative of the lady and... More
