Worth a visit

Went with two friends and we each tried a different Cream Tea. They were all delicious! Not cheap but for the novelty of these 300 year old secret recipe buns in this quaint old house (and the buns being so yummy) it was definitely worth it.

We had lunch here while on holiday in Bath. Obviously a popular place as it was full with a queue waiting. The traditional Sally Lunn's looked delicious, but being a Coeliac my only option was the gluten-free scones which were just OK. Looking around I noticed at least 6 other people having the gluten-free scones and would suggest that the... More

Great little gem, Sally Lunn buns were amazing, like nothing I have ever had before. The staff are friendly, we did feel a little rushed but there aren't many tables and it is a very popular attraction so I can understand. It did seem pricey for what it was but if you think off all the history it is well... More

Popped into Sally Lunns for afternoon tea, really wanted to try the Bath Buns. We ordered the House blend tea and a bun with clotted cream and jam. Absolutely delicious, definitely worth a visit.

When you visit the city of Bath to see the Roman Bath you not way far from trying these yummiest and softest Bun!!! You can have them in different flavor.. lemon is one of my favorites here… It’s not a restaurant which is wide in space…. But it has 3 story’s and very English type… Wi-Fi is free. Highly recommended.

I believe my family was humouring me when they agreed to lunch at Sally Lunn's. I had read many reviews and really wanted to try it. It was wonderful! We ordered the house blend tea and a variety of items between the four of us. The lemon curd bun with the addition of clotted cream was fantastic! I would return... More

We were there when it was crowded for dinner. The kitchen struggled to keep up. A large group of young women nearly drove us out with their raucous behavior. Food is average at best. Wouldn't return.

We came on Sunday, it was our 3rd visit and even though we had to queue it was definitely worth the wait! The building is beautiful. The buns are obviously very tasty either savoury or sweet. Loved the butter chocolate one! Yummy! Great place for proper tea and scones. We'll definitely come back a 4th and a 5th time and... More

pooped in for a quick bite 25 years after our first visit, and once again the Famous buns were excellent, as was the fresh 'proper' tea.

I absolutely loved it here. The history of the place is just magical. I had my first Sally Lunn bun here and my word, I have to recommend the caramel spread with it, absolutely divine!
