Great place for dinner

My girlfriend and I stopped here for an early dinner during a weekend stay and have to say the food was beautiful; we both had starters and mains, and the salmon starter was just amazing!! Normally I don't eat salmon but when my other half's arrived I wished I had ordered it too!! Had the steak... read more

Get there before the 'free' museum closes. Love the 'Sally Lunn' bun as a variance to scones in the cream tea.

There was the option to buy the bun from the museum or have one from the restaurant. But i suppose the uniqueness of the bun is the way it is served: toasted with butter/jam/savoury topping... so i had the cinnamon butter bun in the restaurant. It's a round fluffy bread bun covered with cinnamon butter (butter + cinnamon + brown... More

Whenever we visit our son in Chiipingham , we catch the train to Bath, then straight to Sally Lunn for a cinnamon Bath bun with a coffee, sometimes we have lunch, so delicious. Weave been visiting Sally Lunns restaurant for over 20years, and will continue to visit in the future.

Popped in for lunch with family. Children loved the Welsh Rarebit and I could become partial to the double bacon bun. Quaint and welcoming with great service.

Seriously, their Bath Buns are not specially tasty. But easting in the old building was the treat. Take 5 minutes, go downstairs to visit the museum and you will appreciate eating there more. If there had been a long line for eating there, I would have skipped eating and just visited the museum.

This place obviously gets a lot of visitors due to its historic past, the building is amazing with all original beams etc on show, but I think food let it down. The bath buns, although tasty, were over priced and the toppings unimaginative and lacked flavour. I would not recommend the afternoon tea as it was very basic. The museum... More

This place is so good we visited twice !!! Buns are tea plate size and unusual in taste. I thought they tasted slightly like a croissant. Original owner was from France. Delicious buns and tea time specials. Staff perfect. Surroundings and setting is Georgian heaven. Relaxed feeling. Just go ... And see for yourself ...

This is a must visit on any trip to Bath. The buns are simply outstanding. As described in their menu, they are very light and delicious! We tried the sweet and savoury buns. Our personal favourite was the savoury bun. The building which houses the restaurant is very quaint and charming.
