The Sally Lunn bun was a pleasant surprise and good value for money. After eating we visited the museum below the cafe and could see... More

The house is atmospheric, the food much, much less... Possibly I would recommend it for a tea but not for dinner.

We stood in a .small queue, it was 1.30pm and then went into the downstairs room. We ordered a savoury bun, chicken, bacon, lettuce and tomatoes each which was larger than we thought. Was enjoyable as was the pot of Sally Lynn tea. We then went downstairs, narrow and a little difficult to go down, and saw the kitchen and... More

Many people seem to love the bun, but I only thought it was okay. Not as rich or flavorful as promised, relied on the toppings (the three of us got a salmon, salmon pate, and salt beef) for flavor. The museum showed how the street level of Bath changed over the centuries, but would not have been worth price of... More

Sally Lunn's Museum was pointed out by our guide and thus we decided to visit it. We also got their lovely buns to eat in the bus on the way back to London.

From the moment you enter the shop you feel part of an experience.The recipe was brought over by a French girl and she combined the brioche with more traditional bread to create the bun.You are eating history and then go downstairs to see a snapshot of a kitchen from the period. Simple but effective

An excellent traditional bakery and tea shop. You really would not want to visit Bath without paying a visit to Sally Lunns. There can be long queues so if you can go earlier in the day you will avoid having to stand in line.

We decided to have a bun for lunch. We had to wait about 10 mins for a table but worth it. We both had a savoury bun, one chicken and bacon and one double bacon. Both delicious. Visited the small museum kitchen after eating. One of those things that you must do when visiting Bath.

Great interesting place to gave a break. We bought some buns to take home to Cornwall 😃 It is a small quirky piece of Bath history, the food was delicious as was the range of tea offered. Would definitely recommend this for a visit

Maybe it was the queues of tourists or maybe it was that the food simply wasn't to my taste but I didn't enjoy the experience. I thought that it was just me but my wife and two grown up children didn't enjoy it either. Very much a production line.
