I was amazed at the history of Sally Lunn and so glad I went to this unique museum! By all means you must stop by an get a Sally Lunn Bunn! Some think they are a bit bland; however, I did enjoy mine!

Although I have often eaten here I never knew the museum existed - probably in too much of a rush. What a lovely little place and so interesting. To think that this is where she actually made her Bath buns 350 years ago!

I'd recommend the Cinnamon Butter Bunn. The service is excellent, smart and they catered for my wife breastfeeding by offering the staff room upstairs. Really nice and a must see for tourists.

On our weekend away in Bath we visited (again) this lovely place for coffee & the famous Sally Lunn bun (with cinnamon butter of course!) We took friends who had never been before & they were enchanted with the lovely old building & museum too....More

A nice small and free museum to visit after having a tea and bun stop here. Friendly, welcoming and helpful member of staff. Nice gift shop by it. Just watch your head on the way down to it.

A tiny room in the tiny basement of this narrow ancient house/restaurant. In the 1980's, the owners dug into the basement looking for extra storage space -- and they found Roman and Medieval remains. Amazing! Free.

Its just a gift shop in the basement with a diorama. The Bath roll which is the famous item is pretty much a very large hamburger bun which is a bit sweet--kind of like Royal Hawaiian but not as good.

We stopped at Sally Lunn's last Saturday for a simple lunch and enjoyed Welsh Rarebit for two, came on a Bath Bun and was just right for a midday meal. A must visit if in Bath.

We visited Sally Lunn's to buy some of the famous buns to take home. They sell the buns downstairs in the museum which is basically the old kitchen. We were served by a very sweet lady who explained about the history of the kitchen and...More

This just seemed like a dusty afterthought for the actual eatery above. Mildly interesting but not particularly so.

The museum is in the cellars of Bath’s oldest house - access is via a small staircase only. We are very friendly to everyone but access for those with mobility issues is not easy.
