This is a tiny museum but what it shows is of high significance to the discerning Bath visitor. Bath is not one city but many. Each time another settlement built in Bath it actually built on the previous site. Hence the level of Bath as we see it now is much higher than the original. Georgian Bath, for example, is... More

Apart from the superb bun there is nothing fascinating about this place. The place is very cramped and the tables are very near to each other. The tea rooms are spread over 3 floors.

A time honoured tradition of afternoon tea but with Sally Lunns original bun recipe instead of the usual scone , the Lemon Curd is delicious for a change to the usual Jam option . The staff were...

What a lovely little find! We had tea, coffee and their famous buns with jam and clotted cream here. The staff were so welcoming and lovely, very quick service. It's so tiny inside but perfect atmosphere. The buns are MASSIVE and delicious! Definitely worth a visit.

The museum is open to all who eat or drink in Sally Lunn's. Just a glimpse into life in the kitchen in days gone by. A glimpse of the old roman foundations and a reproduction of the Sally Lunn buns bakiing as they were first made, plus a little shop selling tea and jam.

Not the biggest museum in the world, but having had a wonderful lunch in the famous Sally Lunn's café above, it was really a must to go downstairs to see the museum.

Sought out this traditional tea room, in a fascinating passage, for a renowned Sally Lunn bun accompanied by cinnamon butter. Freshly made and most enjoyable. The bonus was a museum in the basement. This was a surprise and an enjoyable extra. Not to be missed.
