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!

The museum was tiny and didn't excite me at all. I bought some of the Sally Lund buns and they were amazingly light and delicious. I have never tasted a bun so good. They were very nice with clotted cream and jam. Be warned they are huge. You will not need to buy many. I bought way to many, which... More

We ate here first then went to the museum. The food was nice but the eating area was crowded and didn't look very pleasant. The museum has little to it and had we known we would not have bothered taking time out when there are lots of better attractions to see in Bath. Again it was very crowded and it... More

First the good because it is good. The food was excellent delicious and plentiful and we had no complaints about service. Their own mixed blend of tea was lapped up by a Kenyan friend used to tea with lots of hot milk but she loved this. However, I do think it is a little overpriced and we would not normally... More

The museum is the actual building and some of its original features. I enjoy visiting such quaint rambling buildings, but it won't be everyone's cup of tea if you've travelled to Bath on a Roman quest. In the main we popped into Sally Lunn's for dinner. The food was outstanding. There is an extensive menu which I would advise checking... More

Nice little place for lunch. not much of a museum but the buns are really good. A little overpriced for what you get. We had pimms it was just pimms with some orange segments if your going to offer pimms on your menu I think you should do it right (cucumber strawberries and mint) but thats me being picky. we...

Love this place. Very quirky with a lovely welcoming feel. The cinnamon butter bun is so delicious. You get half of a large bun which is light and airy with a good choice of yummy toppings. Give it a go.

I researched my trip to Bath on Trip advisor beforehand and mistakenly thought that Sally Lunn's Museum was a museum - it is NOTt. It is an expensive tea room split over many floors of a rickety old building. The food was nice but totally overpriced. Unless you are a tourist (who might find the tea room quaint and symbolic...

Hi Katie. The Museum is in our cellar - perhaps you missed it? There are indeed 3 refreshment rooms above all serving historic and unique fayre in one of Bath's oldest houses - if not the oldest [not sure it is rickety but the floors are certainly not level...] . The museum shows the original bakery and oven used by... More

Not too much of a queue to seat 7 of us, but goodness, we waited nigh on an hour off our sandwiches/buns. Very tasty but a bit too slow.
