I was really looking forward to visiting Sally Lunn's museum to try one of the famous buns. I have to say the interior of the building was very tired and looks in need of some TLC. There was also a strange musty smell in the room that we were in. But it was a warm day and there were lots... More

Although I always enjoyed visiting Sally Lunn's restaurant, the inside of the building is now starting to look very tired and is overdue to a refurbishment. We haven't been for a couple of years and we noticed the difference. Staff were, as usual, very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the food. However, my husband is still disappointed that they...

Really worth a peak into the museum. It's small but fascinating. You can buy the buns in a lovely box and a selection of the homemade toppings to take away. I've bought a few to send to elderly relations as a gift, they were delighted.

Perfect food and service for reasonable prices. It is a must place to eat at in Bath. I'd definitely recommend their trademark toasted, butter basted buns.

Somewhere I have wanted to visit for years and did not disappoint. We had dinner in the restaurant as well, Sally Lunns buns are delicious I never realised you could have them with sweet or savoury food.

A very small museum in the basement of the famous tea-room and restaurant. Many layers of building work can be seen, going back centuries and there are well-labelled utensils and kitchen ware of past ages set out. The gift shop sells a variety of bits and pieces including a lot of Sally Lunn bakery items including the bun that bears... More
