It was late and we were very hungry, they still took us in before almost closing time, thank goodness. We already a braised beef and a chicken leg, both served with hot vegetables and a quarter of the bun. Very home cooking food, nothing fancy. Hot and tummy filling. We also ordered two cups of hot coco, just wanted to... More

It is one of the oldest house in Bath and has a small collection of item at the museum. Famous for the Sally Lunn's Bunn, the restaurant is located on the ground floor and provides good English breakfast menu. The Cinnamon bun and cream tea at this place are my favorite.

We had the set dinner at Sally Lunn's, which meant the famous bun was a savoury affair, used as a trencher. Still fabulous! Love these buns! The museum (free to visir if you eat there, I think) was also interesting. Worth a visit. Kids loved it too.

In one of the oldest houses in Bath, with a date of 1482 ascribed to the house, is this kitchen museum believed to have been the bakery of Sally Lunn. Sally was a Huguenot refugee who came to England to escape religious persecution in France. She created the famous Sally Lunn Bun in the French style of a rich brioche,... More

Visited Sally Lunn's on a wet morning and met by a queue at the door. Decided to come back another day and realised space was at a premium. Buns were tasty baked to an old recipe and the staff were friendly. Serves English cuisine in the evening. The Museum a bonus.

Hi. Delighted you loved your meal and enjoyed eating in the house. Sorry you felt our museum disappointing - it is indeed small but packs a huge amount of history into a small space - including an oven dating back to 1100, a view of the street level from the 1600s, practically the only medieval remains to be seen in...

Yummy buns, very light, and scrummy toppings, not bad price. Very small place so there might be some queuing. But worth it, don't forget the museum downstairs and pick up the leaflet about Sally Lunn and her buns.

We went to try the famous sally lunn buns. Really nice bun, a little surprised to be served by Chinese, not that it matters just expected a more traditional English service. The service was exceptional. The museum an added little bonus.
