Visited as a lover of history and food and was not disappointed. Although there was a queue it moved quickly and we were seated in this interesting house. Menu was extensive and food was gorgeous. Customer service was excellent too. Museum was small but interesting and we bought some buns to take home too. Highly recommended.

This is a must do in Bath. The oldest building and an institution. The bun is so big we shared one and it was perfect. Nice place to rest and relax from the sight seeing.

Sally Lunn's museum in Bath is a nice little reminder of a bygone era. It is one of the oldest houses in Bath. The kitchen museum shows the place where Sally Lunn made the first Bath bun. This is a semi sweet bread - made according to a secret recipe. It is a small place and can get quite crowded.... More

Tiny museum dedicated to the history of the Sally Lunn bun. Fascinating facts and obviously curated by people who love what they do. Great that you can buy the buns and butter to recreate the joy that is a Sally Lunn tea at home

We visited Bath for the Christmas market and visited Sally Lunn's on 30 November. We had been tasked by the parents to bring a Bath bun home for them. The shop opens at 10 am, and we were aware that this place gets busy quickly. It is not unusual to see a queue forming for the café. To buy items... More

A novel experience of a small museum with a restaurant. Interesting historically and a great to be able to look around the small museum before enjoying a good meal based around the bun that has made this place famous.

We didn't have meal or tea in the place. But we visited the downstaris museum and bought the bun. The bun tasted very light and fresh. It can stay up to 4 days and can be freeze.

We stopped here to have an aftenoon tea and try some of these notorious buns. It was vey busy with loads of tourists but once we got a table the service was good. It is an interesting place and you can see the original kitchen in the basement.

This was a tip from our guide book and it was brilliant. The surroundings are nice and rustic (and delightfully small). The food was great with excellent service. We were lucky but often there seems to be a really big queue, although they do everything to get people seated really quickly. I wished we had taken the time to visit... More
