We were there when it was crowded for dinner. The kitchen struggled to keep up. A large group of young women nearly drove us out with their raucous behavior. Food is average at best. Wouldn't return.

We made a trip to Sally Lunn's Museum with the added intention of booking for dinner the following night - our last evening in Bath. The museum is small but quite interesting being down underground where the faggot oven was - a mock up of how it would've been can be viewed from the tiny gift shop. On the other... More

I had to try it because its always been there and I thought its touristy but why not. And I really enjoyed it, its quaint and different, very different to my usual coffee shop choices but the coffee I had was fine and the teacake delicious, and its just a very pleasant place to be.

Stopped in for an evenin meal at the Sally Lunns Kitchen Museum, supposedly the oldest house in Bath. Enjoyed the food very much, and the wife had a vegeterian dish. Service was a little slow as there only appeared to be one waiter so it took him about 15 minutes to take our order

This tiny museum is at the base of the Sally Lunn teashop. You can see excavations which stun you because of what they show about the changes to street level over time, as well as the old ovens. The member of staff down there helpfully answers your questions and you can also buy the buns down there - they are... More

Sally Lunn's tea room is a must visit in Bath. The Sally Lunn signature bun with cream and jam was simply outstanding. They also have decent options for vegetarians (soup and sandwich also containing the Sally Lun bun). The tea was okay though

To call it a Museum is a bit of a stretch, really only one fascinating room in the basement but the 'Cream Tea' was excellent and the surroundings quaint.
