Food was fresh and yummy. seating was rather cramped and the decor looked tired but it is an old Bath tradition so you should excuse it that. Worth a visit for cake and coffee.

If you visit Bath, drop by Sally Lunn's and enjoy a Sally Lunn Bun. This speciality dish has both savory and sweet options, so my husband and I got one of each to share. For sweet, we enjoyed the Milk Jam, which is a toasted and buttered bun served with a delicious dulce de leche spread. For savory, we had... More

The "quick" lunch was a little slow in coming but tasted delicious. I had the pea soup and salmon and cream cheese Sally Lunn Bun, which tastes like a soft roll but nicer. It isn't the cheapest of light lunches but I did enjoy the ambiance and the food. Well worth a visit.

We've walked by here many a time over the past couple of years & decided to call in late Saturday afternoon for tea & the infamous bun. Yes we know it's a piece of Bath's history but this cafe has seen better days. Everything looked tired. Hubby's cup & saucer was stained & the bun he asked for was stodgy,... More

I would say it's worth a visit, maybe for lunch or coffee. During summer it is recommended you book for dinner. Dinner and wine were beautiful however costly. I am happy I went there for dinner and the staff were pleasant. It is a great story to hear and the restaurant looks just beautiful. It is great to sit there... More

Food are pretty expensive. We pay for the history of where the food started. Taste of food average only. Will not go again.

We went for dinner and the hostess was very friendly as we asked to be seated early. Food was better than expected but very expensive. Service was cautious and quite tentative but with a smile. Just a prayer: please provide more imaginative vegetables. For that price I would expect more than boiled, unimaginative potatoes and carrots. Steak was cooked well... More

We went to Sally Lunn's on the recommendation of a London based friend but were sadly disappointed. It's quaint enough and the service was friendly enough, though they seemed a bit overrun. However we were shocked by the poor quality and prices of the food and the meanness of the portions. My partner had Scottish smoked salmon on a Bath... More

I enjoyed visiting Sally Lunn's. The bun was quite nice if a bit overpriced for what it was. The menu had a nice explanation of the history and there was a small museum downstairs for more information. It wasn't the best service because it was really busy but I'd definately go again if I was visiting with other people.

We were taken here by friends who said it was the oldest house in Bath and also had these best Bath buns. We were not disappointed! The old house is interesting and when we went an archaeologist was busy scraping away trying to determine the age of the original kitchen and baking stove. The service was excellent and as I... More
