  • After enjoying your buns don't forget to visit the small museum downstairs. Very quaint and has a nostalgic smell. 
  • Having had delicious home made soup and then a cream tea at the oldest house in Bath, we visited the museum in the basement there. It's very quaint. Well worth a visit. 
  • Ode To A Bun! I visited a quirky place, it's name, was Sally Lunn, I popped in for a tasty treat, which took the shape of a bun, I realised a bun like this was very hard to find, My Bath Bun size was generous, it almost blew my mind! I loved the bun with cinnamon, in this eating house, All so very delicious, I was as quiet as a mouse, Because I was enjoying, each mouthful that I ate, To my next appointment, I knew I would be late, But, I just did not care, this bun & I were entwined, Here's to Sally Lunn, with you, I'm glad I dined!!
  • If you haven't been, go there! High tea kind of setting, old building, and delicious sally lunn buns (not like the NZ/Aussie style by the way)
  • I had an absolutely wonderful experience at Sally Lunn's! The food was so delicious, I ate a Lemon Curd Bunn, and drank raspberry lemonade. The staff were extremely kind and helpful. I can't wait to go back!
  • I love this place. Sort of the best home cooked meal you can have in a restaurant. The bun never fails. Every Time with every kind of food it is always tasty. I always take some buns home with me. Try the cinnamon butter and the chocolate butter. Very tasty in a morning.
  • Sally Lunns is my favourite place to eat in bath, I only moved here 3 weeks ago and have already been 4 times with friends and family!! It is well managed and even when it's busy it never feels chaotic. A great place for a sweet treat or something savoury. Staff are always friendly and pleasant. I'm sure we will be back again soon!!
