Came here for afternoon tea on a Sunday, there was a small queue but we were swiftly seated. The Sally Lunn cream tea was delicious. The tea was the nicest I have ever had. I would definitely recommend a visit.

But you only get half, which when I read I was a little disappointed about, but don't be, the bun may see light but they are filling. Sweet or savory your in for a treat. The museum isn't all that but as it's free to diners, you might as well have a look

We stumbled across this little gem by accident only to discover it to be in the top 5 places to go in Bath Guidebook!... Oldest house in Bath and renowned for its light and fluffy bread cakes... Afternoon tea or evening meal a must, but get there early ... It is very popular

You just have to try a Sally Lunn Bun whilst in Bath - this is a traditional old tea room friendly staff and excellent service. We love the Sally Lunn bun now and only wish we could purchase them elsewhere.

A must do at least once in a life time. Sally Lunn bun just amazing - choose your topping - visit the little museum, but get there early. It gets very crowded. Friendly staff - some are in period dress too - the ladies look lovely. But the coffee - oh dear - and so much competition these days. Still... More

by Tripadvisor from previous reviews....when we found people queuing outside to get in we knew that it would only be for a few minutes...as soon as we were seated we had a very enjoyable hour or so with good food and great coffee. The waitress was very helpful and the next time we visit Bath we will return- 'nuff said'!

Just arrived back from Bath. Set menu was reasonably priced with good, friendly service. We also appeared to get our desserts free of charge! ?! The next day we returned for the Cream Tea experience. Upon learning we were to receive a half bun, we decided to request a whole one each Simple, you may think. But no. It took... More
