The museum is a small room but we had a bun in the tiny sit in room. The waiter was so polite and friendly. Lots of tourists but very quant and pretty inside. I had lemon curd on my bun and a Coffee. We actually bought two to take home as they tasted lovely.

Whenever we visit Bath we always book a table at Sally Lunn's so we can enjoy great food, in a cosy atmosphere with attentive service. The menu (well worth a read as the history surrounding Sally Lunn's is fascinating) although not extensive, has something for every taste, with delicious, hearty main courses and traditional yummy puds. There are starters too... More

We had to wait awhile before being seated, but it was worth the wait. The lemon curd was indeed amazing, and the bath bun was big. The museum is worth a visit, though it is only 1 room. It's also a good place to see stalactites & stalagmites.

This is a nice little side trip in Bath. The buns are delicious and the ambiance is very ye olde England, minus the taffeta, with low ceilings and slipping floors. Tourists love it.

Came across Sally Lunns by accident. But the buns are awesome especially with the homemade cinnamon butter. Go there the buns are exceptional. Don't be put off by the size they are really light!

Oldest building in Bath with a mini museaum and giftshop below. Well worth a visit at this traditional quirky eating house. Serves the famous buns which look more like a massive burger bun with different toppings sweet or savoury. The bun is a luxurious brioche/french bread and is delicious! Meals are also on offer here at reasobable prices. You will... More

We visited for afternoon tea and it was lovely. The most popular item is the Sally Lunn bun, which is kind of like a big teacake - my partner had that and said it was lovely. I had the scones which were great, served warm with cream and jam. The menu also offered a good choice of lunch time meals.... More

Walked past here oodles of time and seen the queues so it was nice to visit a quiet Sally Luns and get a table by the window. Excellent food but beware the size of the buns! Really enjoyed the museum and all staff exceptionally friendly and knowledgable.

Step back in time and feel like you are part of the Bath gentry, having afternoon tea after a jaunt around the roman spa. The scones are outstanding, and after a second visit the sally lunn bun is such a treat! Loose leaf tea and certainly pleasant staff are waiting for you.
