Sally Lunn's is tucked away behind the main shopping area of Bath, near to the Cathedral.
Its the home of the original delicious bun that has been often copied and attempted in bakeries around the world for over 300 years.
The word bun is an unhelpful description. There is no truly useful common English word to describe a Sally Lunn Bun as it is part bun, part bread, part cake… A large and generous but very very light bun; a little like brioche/French festival bread....
I took my daughter here after a day of exploring Bath for a school project. The food was good, something very different and ideal for a filling lunch!

I could live on tea, scones and double devonshire cream for probably a good three months before I tired of it. Sally Lunn's is one of the most famous places to indulge in all of the UK, but it's certainly not my favorite. They serve more fluffy buns than dense scones. But the tea room is adorable and there's a cute little museum-like section in the front.

I had a lovely time with friends here after hearing this place is a must-do if you come to Bath. They are supposed to be known for their cream teas, which means tea with "lunn buns" with clotted cream and jam. It was very tasty. However, I've heard from friends who have gone more recently that the quality of food and service has declined. Hope it was an isolated incident. Their is a cheesy museum-like display below that shows how the business came about. Fun for photos.

This is a small, cozy tea room with good, reasonably priced food. The Sally Lunn buns are very large, and great with soup, just butter, or with clotted cream and jam or cinnamon. You can get some bunns to go if you can't get a table. Highly recomended.
