Went here last year and had a cinnamon bun. This time I couldn't decide if I should have the same as I enjoyed it sooooo much or to have something different. I decided to go for a Welsh Rarebit with buttered mushrooms, it too was very tasty and I would recommend this to anyone. I may have to go back... More

Wandered past whilst we were visiting Bath and decided to pop in for a Infamous Sally Lunn Bun. I had the Queen Victoria tea (SL bun, lemon curd and clotted cream) and OH had cinnamon and cream with his bun. Also visited the museum and brought some buns to bring home. Definitely worth a visit if in the area. Sat... More

This was on our list of things to do in Bath having visited the Roman baths, eaten lunch and done lots of sightseeing on foot we were ready for an afternoon treat. We arrived around 3pm and were seated within 7 minutes even though the place was packed. This may seem a long time and I know others have waited... More

I have visited several times and always been welcomed and enjoyed the experience. The buns are just fabulous, but beware you will never eat a whole one! Great for sharing with friends. On my last visit with family, the waiter happened to hear my sister mention she was going to take a pill for a headache, and before she had... More

I came to Bath for the weekend with a friend and we were so impressed we came here twice. The buns were amazing and there is no shortage of topping choice! We came early (around 10/11am both days and had no problem getting a table. I loved the museum and the lady who gave us a talk was very knowledgeable.... More

If you have had a cuppa at the coffee shop, you can go to the museum for free. It is well worth it. The lady serving is lovely and has a great knowledge about Bath itself. Definitely worth a visit.

It only takes a few minutes, but if you enjoyed a bun or tea, or both, you can nip down below the cafe to the museum. You will find many original implements, along with some amazing stalactites that are hundreds of years old. Recently part of the medieval foundation was unearthed, revealing a door that was unknown. What is fascinating... More

We went to try the Sally Lunn buns, which are large with a texture somewhere between a brioche and a barm cake. We had one with lemon curd and one with cinnamon butter, and shared them, both were delicious and we decided that our elevenses snack actually meant we did not need any lunch. We could have made more of... More

Lovely museum, but if I am honest it is all about the Sally Lunn Buns, grab a seat and be served by victorian dressed women and get a savoury and sweet bun to try with a nice pot of any tea you can think of!
