My mum and I stumbled across this place when looking for somewhere to have dinner. It looked quiet and we were drawn to how old the place was (plus the menu looked amazing! We love traditional English food)!! I’d never tried the trencher before (I...More

This was the highlight of my London trip. I took a tour bus to Stonehenge and it also took me to Bath and I just went along with it. I didn't expect much and it ended up being my top memory. I ate the steak...More

So it’s the original Bath Bun in Bath!! What a delight, many different options to choose, from sweet to savoury in very ‘historic’ surroundings. You certainly shouldn’t visit Bath without tasting a genuine bun from Sally Lunn’s!!

The staff were marvellous and there certainly is some great history. So I suppose you pay for the privilege. Really though, you're paying for just a half a large bread roll. Soup was good.More
