“Oh Dear”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

I'm not sure how long the Bath Bun has been established but sadly I think that like so many cafe/tourist traps it has lost it's way. Quality is not high on the list of their priorities. Sad cakes and the eponymous bun all over priced and not to my mind baked daily. OK I know I am a grumpy old cynic but really, even American and Japanese tourists must have a sense of taste, surely?

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Quirky crockery and building don't make-up for above average prices for fairly average fare. Sally Lunn's has the edge in Bath' nostalgia stakes

“Expensive tea and a stale cake!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

I don't consider £4.30 to be a reasonable price for two cups of tea. Nor do I expect a tea 'shoppe' in the centre of Bath to be selling stale cakes.

Waitress was friendly enough, and service was quick and efficient. However, there are better tea shop[pe]s in Bath.

“OMG!! I have found the best little place in the universe.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We went to this tea shop last Saturday (20.10.12). It was very busy and possibly short staffed, however the staff were just wonderful. Great food, great tea's and well worth the visit. I would say get there early as it does become very popular. I got another weekend planned in Bath soon. And, yes. We will be in the Bath bun once again. Top marks to all the staff, xxxxxxx
