Some reviewers seem to be so impressed by the age and quirkiness of the place that they've missed the fact that the 'bun' is desperately uninteresting (no more special than an inexpensive 'bap' from any old supermarket, costing a few pence) and the tea is poor (Earl Grey with hardly any bergamot and more than a hint of Lapsing -...

We visited her earring at about 1.30pm. We wired in a short your then were taken to the downstairs front room.there was not a lot of room but enough. The staff were very friendly. We ordered savoury buns and we didn't have to wait long. They were delicious and enough for our lunch! Tea was good too. We went downstairs... More

With my fiancé back home on the United States I explored Bath on my own. I heard great things about the Sally Lunn Bun (they definitely live up to the hype) so I decided to go in for some afternoon tea, alone. The room was darker and candlelit - very romantic. I looked around and everyone, and I mean EVERYONE,... More

This cafe/museum is great fun although tiny. Not for the claustrophobic. The famous Sally lunn treacake is delicious, my favourite is cinnamon but there are lots of toppings to choose from. Although it is always packed the staff are friendly and polite

This is one of the most talked about things in Bath, very famous for the Sally Lunn Bun. The building is lovely, the oldest house in Bath and it definitely shows it. There is a fairly unpleasant smell inside which doesn't add to the experience. The staff were nice but not very attentive. It is very expensive because it is... More

We decided to try Sally Lunn's after hearing about it on the Bath City bus tour. We went on a Sunday morning - somehow we got there before the queue formed & we got a table straight away. The place was packed - full of tourists from all over the world who had heard the Sally Lunn story. Even though... More

I took some Swedish visitors to Sally Lunns for brunch. Having lived near Bath for 10 years I can't believe I have overlooked this gem of a place. Its quirky, in a good way. The choice of fillings or toppings for the famous Bun are numerous, filling and delicious. The owners have worked hard to maintain the character and history... More

Charming restaurant with great story/history and fresh, tasty food and good service. Sort of a touristic thing to do yet the experience of it doesn't feel touristy. Their prix fixe menu is a great value.

If you want to avoid the queue get there before brunch time. I have always tried the sweet bun with cinnamon butter on top, it is the most delicious thing I have ever tried. I also purchased two buns from Sally Lunn's museum for a very decent price and have them at home with scramble eggs!

The tearoom is cute and quaint, and the staff were friendly. My sister and I both ordered the 'world famous Sally Lunn cream tea', which was delicious, and the service was quick. The museum is also worth a visit, it is only small, but it's nice to learn about the history of the place. My sister and I also purchased... More
