I've visited bath many times and tried all the tea rooms... This is my favourite. It oozes history and charm without "trying too hard". The Sally Lunn bun is a delight and one of my favourites. I had the one with lemon curd and I almost died of pleasure. If you're a foody- then you'll love it! The museum underneath... More

This wasn't all it was cracked up to be. An open sandwich which was expensive for what it was - the open club had not much chicken and fatty bacon. The tea was good though and the staff were nice. The place itself is shabby. Needs a bit of TLC.

After all the hype, I am afraid to say I was disappointed. The service was quick and friendly but with regards to the "bun-style" meals, I thought it was over-rated, over priced and I came away under-fed! I think the buns are more of a gimmick than a delicacy. A friend recommended it and he loves it - I will... More

On our first trip to the UK, and after hearing about Sally Lunn's buns for decades, a visit to this establishment was a must-do. However, we were nearly put off by the queue out the door - mostly overseas visitors for sure. We decided to wait it out and luckily the line moved fairly quickly. At least you get a... More

This was a delightful building with charm and tradition. Excellent service and a lovely afternoon tea. The buns were delicious, try the lemon curd. The best tea(to drink) I have had for along time, including home made! All the best things that are done well in our country.

My wife, daughter and I decided to grab lunch in Sally Lunns in Bath as I had a hospital appointment which finished early. My wife and I have eaten here before several years ago and have tried several times since but the queues for a table are often out the front door! This quaint eaterie attracts many overseas tourists, particularly... More

Had the bun with the lemon curd - according to the hype I should have then had a grin from ear to ear - I didn't, but quite enjoyed it nonetheless! Rose tea to accompany the bun which wasn't s strongly flavoured as I'd imagined it might be, but that's the way it was. Worth a visit to experience the... More

We made a reservation at Sally Lunn's weeks before our recent trip to England and Wales. The trip began in Bath, and we wanted a great place to dine on our first night in town, before the official tour began the next day. So we were very new to the city—and the country—when we sat down to eat there. The... More

In Bath and teatime so where else to go but the famous Sally Lunn's. There marketing of this restaurant is such that it is an attraction in its own right (all tourist information offices) so I did approach here with the expectation of steep prices and hoards of tourists. The building itself was unassuming which was positive - I expected... More
