I don't know what to say - I went only to museum (it's not a museum, it's one room in cellar, really small and at the same time it's a shop, so don't expect anything big). As for restaurant, I've checked menu, the buns are served in many different (and tasty!) ways, especially the savour options sound great. But there... More

The museum is composed of two rooms down a very steep and narrow staircase. You cannot go into these rooms; rather, you look at them from the doorway. Inside each room are information signs that describe what you are looking at. One room is a kitchen. It's interesting to imagine how the cooking was done with what they had. The... More

This little museum is a must visit as it shows how the bakery was originally set up, and how Bath has been built up to prevent flooding.

DO NOT BUY THE SALLY LUNN BUN IN THE MUSEUM - FRUITFLIES ALL OVER THEM! So if you only consider the museum itself - its worth a visit. I think its 50p without refreshments or free with refreshments. We didn't pay as we had afternoon tea here. Take the 50p with a pinch of salt - I don't know how... More

Thanks for your 4 stars - A few little corrections - the museum is just 30p [not 50p] - FREE if you take refreshment. We don't sell display bunns and have never had an issue with flies in our museum but will investigate [nor has our pest controller who we have an excellent relationship with as you would expect from...

I enjoyed Sally Lunn's Museum! It was quite interesting and now I finally know and understand her story. In the Museum you have an opportunity to purchase a Sally Lunn Bun. I liked mine; however my friend did not like hers.

Museum is a small basement, together with a shop where you can buy authentically (as in the old days) baked bread. Visit should take max 10 min. I noticed a large que to the restaurant upstairs/at ground floor!

True it's quaint but the rest of the experience is very ordinary. We were a large group and it was the end of the day but the service left a little to be desired.

The museum itself isn't that great but the building and the Buns are a must for anyone visiting Bath. You can have cream tea and split one bun between two people and have enough. Loved the Bun!!

Small but interesting. Only a coule of rooms but It was fascinating to see how the kitchens worked 400 years ago. When we visited a friendly guide was there to give us additional information about the rooms we were looking at.
