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.

The basement of the building features a reconstruction of the old kitchen. Not much to see, so just move along.

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.

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

What there is to see is interesting but for all the fuss that is made of this, there is very little of it.

We really enjoyed our afternoon tea here. It's appears to be busy but the queue moves quickly (5-10 minutes) and the service is very friendly and efficient. The menu items are very tasty and if you visit Bath then eating at Sally Lunn's is a...More

Response from BathBunnMan | Property representative |
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.
