Went with my daughter for tea and to try what the history sees to sell as special. A really hot building with no air circulation and giant plane bun with no flavour what so ever. I really don't get it as its like eating some...More

Nothing particularly special but good to kill an hour if you visit the restaurant too. The Bath bus sold here are expensive but tasty.

I'd barely call this a museum, really, as it's just a small room with a scene depicting what the old bakery was like beneath the restaurant, but it's worth a peek if you're already there for a bunn. Plus, they've got fresh bunns to take...More

A very small museum, but a worthwhile stop. The buns are good, and we took some for a picnic at a nearby park.

Well after reading about it on TA we decided to visit this museum this Sat. The timings stated were up to 8 or 9 pm. But when we reached their entrance around 6 pm, we were asked whether we would like a table for two....More

I am sorry you were disappointed. The opening hours were incorrect on Trip Advisor and have now been changed. I do not know why they were incorrect or indeed who entered them but thank you for pointing this out. Given we are a famous eatery...More

Amazing to see how such a small place would have worked. And created such a tasty, versatile Bunn. Definitely worth a visit even if the queue's too long to get in (you can buy the Bunn's to take away!) or if you don't have much...More

Your comment is both sad to read and very misleading to the reader looking for advice on where to go in central Bath. Sally Lunn's is Bath's oldest house and has also been a world famous historic eating house for a long long time. We...More

If you are in the area pop along to the museum and tea rooms. I imagine in the height of the summer that it is extremely busy but do go and see

The only interesting thing to us, is how long they've been baking the same bun. But, why? It's basically a large, bland yeast roll. Not really anything special. The museum is a tiny room.More

Many many people think we are very special and enjoy a short visit to our unique house - Bath's oldest - as it offers a quirky and interesting visit. If combined with a meal or a snack it allows a visitor very clever use of...More

The museum is in the basement of the tea shop. There are two displays, one of the kitchen where Sally Lunn cooked, and one illustrating the history of the building all the way from Roman times to present. There is also a gift shop with...More
