“Nice buns”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

You will probably need to queue to be seated as this is a popular attraction. As there is a high turnover of guests your table may be a little grubby.

The waiting staff are variable from excellent to indifferent.

The buns are huge; a meal in themselves, and delicious. Cinnamon is very popular and had sold out when we arrived at 3:30.

The lady in the museum in the basement was very knowledgable and the little shop down there sells the cinnamon butter that we couldn't get upstairs on a bun.

The museum is tiny but fascinating nonetheless.

“Wonderful Bath buns!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

This place cannot be missed if one is in Bath. We had a delicious afternoon tea here - the Bath bun with cinnamon butter is mouth watering. Great history to the place too. Don't miss!!

“Loved the buns!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

We chose Sally Lunn's for buns because we wanted to visit one of the oldest homes in Bath. After a short wait, we were seated and ordered a Cinnamon Butter Bun and a Ginger Butter Bun and the Sally Lunn House Blend Tea. The butters were creamy and just melted in your mouth. The tea was very nice. The staff was friendly which made up for some mistakes in the service. Our buns came without the tea or utensils. The utensils came quite a bit later. It was torture to see and smell the buns and not be able to taste them. The tea was eventually brought to the table and we were told one of them would be removed from the bill. It wasn't and we didn't mention it because everything was so tasty. The atmosphere was great and added value to the whole experience.

“Yummmmmm!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Cute little tea shop. The buns are lovely and massive!! There's a little museum in the basement which is worth a quick look. The stairs are all tight and steep so maybe difficult for some.

Oh dear very small room with stairs down to the cellar best thing is you can purchase the buns ! Was expecting a bit more perhaps should have read more about it. Cafe was busy.
