Decided to dine here one evening as the restaurant had good reviews. Cosy eating experience and lovely food. The staff were extremely helpful and the menu contained the history of the building. Unfortunately the museum was closed, we ate at 7pm, but we will be back to visit another time.

Fantastic food, good value for money, excellent service and interseting old house. Well worth a visit and the Sally Lunn bun is light and the cakes are great too

we had planned to go to the thermae spa for an evening bath, but seeing the ridiculous number of people in the queue, we decided even if we managed to get in we would be packed like sardines in the baths. since the sally lunn's house is conveniently located 5minutes from the roman baths and thermae spa, we thought why...

Having dragged the family here on my request and queued in the rain for 20 minutes before getting under cover there was some pressure on this being a good experience. The good news is that we all loved it! Sure it wasn't perfect with the waiter getting the order a bit wrong first time, but he corrected it and we... More

Very warm welcome, it was a busy time but we were kept informed of waiting times, quickly attended too once seated, the Bunn's were delicious and well worth taking time to stop and enjoy and the lady in the museum took time to answer all our questions and give her personal opinion on choices which was appreciated, we will definitely...

I walked into Sally Lunn's attracted by the museum but I was not sure it would not turn out to be one of those typical tourist traps, but I was really pleasantly surprised: Excellent fresh food, good portions, good wine included in the meal, very reasonable price and excellent friendly service. I could not have wished for more. I thoroughly... More

Lovely meal, very small place so we were lucky to walk straight in as there was a huge queue as we left. Service quick and very polite staff.

We have now visited Sally Lunns 4 times and it is the 1st place we book when we arrive in Bath. Food is excellent with the famous trencher bread. It is a small place and service is very good. A quaint place to visit and recommend a visit, we will be going again
