You may have to wait a while to get a table in this quirky squashed restaurant but it was well worth it. The only fault was that it wasn't clear where the museum was and so we didn't see anything, we just had a delicious...More

The museum of kitchen downstairs was very interesting, showing how difficult cooking has been. The Resturant upstairs was very expensive for what was on offer, not worth it.

This museum is so small it's hard to really call it a museum just three displays ...no photos allowed its just a cellar area with a few exhibits you are in and out in less than 10 minutesMore

So sorry that we failed to impress. Photos are definitely allowed - encouraged even - so a little confused how you got this idea. So much history packed into a small space. Whilst our big world famous bunns are beautiful [and yummy] our museum is...More

We had a short time in Bath as we were on a guided tour from London. Our guide took us past Sally Lunn's and we returned before boarding the bus to buy a bun and jam. The shop is located downstairs and has some neat...More

Take a seat in a traditional English tea room and have one of Sally Lunn's Buns. The traditional cinnamon butter on one of those buns is particularly interesting. Prices are okay and service staff is friendly. The museum is free but very small.

This is a tea shop with a teeny museum of a mannequin in a shop (just as you can see on the photos!). Good to do if you're in Bath, but not worth a special trip. A Sally Lunn 'bun' is just a cob /...More

It is so frustrating that we have failed to communicate all the things that our little museum has to offer. I am so sorry that you did not leave with a better understanding of how Bath's street levels had changed over the past 1000 years...More

This is a very small museum located below the café. It is quite interesting but I would not make a special effort to visit it.

The museum is interesting but hardly worth a visit. The buns aren't made there anymore and don't look that appetizing. I didnt try one and I love baked goods. I don't know I was underwhelmedMore

I am so sad that we failed to impress you - it is what we all try and do. Our oven dates from 1100 and so we are confused why you would expect us to still bake in it. I am pleased you enjoy baked...More

The Sally Lunn museum has one main advantage over the British museum in London, in my opinion. The reason being that the British museum will can take a whole day of your time, whereas the Sally Lunn museum will not take up more than a...More

This place offers a unique experience, you're seated very quickly and there's a large range of sweet and savoury buns to eat fresh. I'd highly recommend the bun with jam/clotted cream or cinnamon butter, and take one home from the shop!
