“Traditional confection with a long history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Sally Lunn's is housed, as it has been for centuries, in the oldest building in Bath, a part of the original pre-Georgian city. This quaint passageway was originally called Lilliput Alley, but for some obscure reason the local authority has renamed it more prosaically as North Parade Passage. The Sally Lunn bun is a traditional, delicious and filling confection that is best enjoyed with a cup of morning coffee.

The small Museum is in the basement and based primarily on the the building and its long occupation in an authentic way. Well worth a visit in order to satisfy the appetite for both sustenance and history.

“Very interesting little place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Not really a museum, but interesting to see the old ovens, it adds to the experience of eating in, or buying your Bath Buns from, this historic building. Worth popping in for an afternoon tea. Girl in the 'museum' could be more welcoming!

“A Must-Do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I had the Bunn with roasted Brie and Cranberry Sauce. AMAZING! Next time I'll try the Bunn with Cinnamon Butter and Clotted Cream!

“Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Be there before 6PM. The lady in the basement is grumpy so don't expect much from her. Don't bother buying post cards from there as they are expensive and if you decide to eat there, do so before 6pm and avoid the steak.

“The proof was in the eating”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Looked a fab place and couldn't resist the opportunity to try out Sally Lunns especially after reading the reviews. I chose the salmon and you would have thought they couldn't go wrong with that but this was probably the worst I have ever tasted. It definitely wasn't fresh, I would have thought perhaps bought from somewhere like Iceland and cooked from frozen or been lying around for a while - inedible! Complained to the manager and they were apologetic and didn't charge me. Perhaps ok for teacakes but definitely won't be back for a meal.
