Happened to come across the museum and restaurant by chance. We went into the museum, which was very small, expecting a bit more. It's literally just a replica of the small space where she made the buns. Talking of the buns, they were not anything special. The woman who was working the museum and selling the buns suggested eating the... More

The restaurant was very quaint; food was just okay. We were disappointed that the museum closed before we were finished, and we were never able to make it back during their open hours.

Visited the tea room for a Sally Lunn aand Cinnamon Butter and had to take a peek at the museum downstairs. Whilst it is tiny....there is much to see and a knowledgeable staff member on hand to answer questions & tell you about life back before the famous Sally Lunn. Do go and check it out. Its Free.

This very tiny museum is underneath Sally Lunn's tea rooms and is well worth popping into if you visit the tea room. It has recently been redesigned to allow a better view of the old oven and kitchen scene. It also acts as the shop to purchase your Sally Lunn buns and tea blends to take home. It is interesting...

Very interesting shop said to be the oldest in Bath where Sally Lunn started her business of making buns. There is a small museum underneath the shop showing her original kitchen which is free if you buy refreshments in the shop. The buns are delicious with either sweet and savoury toppings. Would definitely recommend.

A quaint 17th century cafe/ restaurant celebrating Sally Lunn’s baking with the original recipe and a must for tourists. We are fairly local but have never visited before so the experience was very good. We visited mid morning and opted for half a Bath bun each loaded with cinnamon butter, one with a cafetiere and one with hot chocolate. Lovely... More

We didn't sit down to eat. But you can't visit bath without buying a Sally Lunn bun. Love the history and the bun is light bread bun which I took home and had lemon curd on and enjoyed every bit if it.

Recommend eat in the tea shop then visit the very small museum, buy buns to bring home. Might have to queue at busy times but worth the wait.
