Worth visiting and having a cup of tea and scones, but did not like the famous buns - very much like a hamburger bun in U.S. Service kind and helpful. Very small place, but full of history which is what makes this worthwhile.

come and dine for the Sally Lunn's buns, which are as good as people say they are. The museum can be visited afterward and takes not more than a few minutes.

We visited the museum to get out of the rain. The lady working there was very informative and even managed to answer odd questions from a 7yr old about make up in the 17th century. Very informative for such a small place.

Such a cute little place, and the food was yummy. It really gave you an idea of what the inside of those narrow little homes were like. We enjoyed our lunch of Sally Lunn Buns, and tea, which gave us the energy to keep on...More

Tasty but unadventurous food. Service was excellent and friendly. The highlight was the tiny museum in the cellar. Really evocative. Liked the way the mannequin tending the oven was covered with flour and flustered looking!

Obviously very historic and, judged on that alone, worth a visit but service-wise, food-wise, little more than a good average. Our waitress was competent but unsmiling and the cream tea was not one of the best I've had. They were particularly ungenerous with the clotted...More
