When in Bath

If you are visiting bath, I would be willing to suggest that some of your purpose would be for its history and this is part of it. It's a quaint little tea room with telling history around you. The food is good and nice for a one off of indulgence. At busy times the service has to spread out... read more

Visited in middle of a busy warm day and were seated very quickly. The staff were slow to take our order but the food arrived quickly and was lovely!! The museum down stairs was a nice touch to the history of the house and the woman was very knowledgeable. Only bad thing would be that it was quite stuffy on... More

It's an interesting experience to visit one of the very oldest houses in this historic town and the local speciality bun is very nice indeed, if a little overpriced for what it is. Nonetheless, it's one if those "you have to have tried it" activities if you're visiting bath and an worthwhile experience to visit the "museum" downstairs.

I have been to Sally Lunns before and when we were in Bath I couldn't but pay a visit. We were lucky and got a table straight away. Note it can get busy and you may sometimes need to wait up to 10-15 minutes .... but it's worth it. We got 2 Sally Lunns, one with jam and one with... More

It took us a while to find this place because it's on a pedestrian street behind the abbey and the pump rooms. We ordered the 2 course lunch. The buns were good, but the food was way overpriced for what you get. We waited at least 15 minutes for our 2nd course to arrive. We saw others arrive, eat, and... More

This very British restaurant with so much history is well worth a visit when in Bath. Everyone enjoyed their lunch.

Somewhat overpriced typical English fare on half of a large white bread bun. Apple pear crisp was warm, served with ice cream and tasty, but again, overpriced and frequented mostly by tourists.

It's always great to enjoy something that "everyone" does and this restaurant is good but if you go it is more to say you were in the oldest restaurant in Bath. It was good but if I go back to Bath I would likely try something else. The food was good but nothing amazing. They are known for their buns.... More

Sally Lunn's is so popular that queue's do form around peak times! But don't be put off its worth it, and you wont have to wait long! The service is excellent, the buns are unique, delicious and one of those time old recopies that needs to be honored! My advice is to go late morning or late afternoon to avoid... More

They say a trip to Bath would not be complete without a gastronomic side trip to Sally Lunn's. And theyre probably right. The thing is that one needs a reservation at least 4-6 hours before your visit, especially on the weekends where they are usually fully booked. Also, be prepared to shell out at least £18 per person as a... More
