We decided to go here for our last lunch before leaving Bath because I'd heard about Sally Lunn's famous buns and wanted one last treat. We couldn't decide between a sweet or a savoury bun so decided to have 1 of each and share and I'm so glad we did. The buns are huge!! But they were absolutely delicious. The... More

The place was busy, as it always is, and we were shown up a winding staircase to a table on the top floor. The Sally Lunn buns are huuuuge and served as a top or a bottom - trust me, you'd struggle to eat 2 halves. There are sweet and savoury versions so are good for lunch but time it... More

Sally Lunn's was recommended by a friend, and is well worth the visit. Good food at very reasonable prices, in a convivial atmosphere, and historic surroundings and convenient central location when visiting Bath. The restaurant was full when we first arrived as we hadn't booked a table (even though it was midweek) but we went back at 8 pm as... More

Located round the back of the cathedral in a lovely courtyard, this tearoom delivers exactly what it promises. A rustic building with no frills but some characterful touches, a lovely assortment of home made cakes and a wide selection of delicious teas. Service was slow but it was busy and those narrow corridors and doorways aren't easy to negotiate in... More

They are probably the best buns you'll ever have. If you are visiting Bath, make sure line up and have your afternoon tea here. It's totally worth the wait!

Came across the place by accident, looking for somewhere nice to eat that didn't need to be booked weeks in advance! Quirky little place, friendly staff, quick service and good reasonably priced food. Bit of history there too if you're interested. Give it a try.

Booked before we left for our day In Bath, did not want to eat in the Hotel as we like to sample the local fare. Shown to our table after a small delay. The service was good and we did not have to wait long. Enjoyed a couple of Bath Ales with the meal, the food was excellent and plentiful... More

The food was unique and a definite must try! The tea was really nice too! Don't forget to go to the museum to get some buns to take home!

I came here with a friend for a quick snack and decided to try the famous bun with some soup. The bun is really as good as it claims to be, it has a fabulous aroma and is very light and soft. I ended up ordering 1 more and ordering 4 to take away. A certain must try! The restaurant... More
