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.

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!

A teeny tiny museum which is full of history. A must see building and do try the Buns. When you enter its not quite clear where to go but the lady who magically appeared soon directed us. It helps to do some research before so you know what you are expecting to see.

The Sally Lunn (can be offered in many different ways: sweet or savory) was just divine. Some wait to get a seat (15min) but that is a testament to what is waiting to great you. A visit to the small museum downstairs was an added bonus and FOC if eating on premises. Well worth a visit
