Sally Lunns Historic Museum And Eating House - Review
History and cuisine have never before come together at such reasonable prices. Housed in the oldest residence in Bath is the most charming and most romantic eatery you can imagine. It’s wonderful for afternoon tea and it’s wonderful for dinner.
The staffs are warm as anything and will make you feel right at home. Combine your food with a little foray into the museum showcasing the house’s past, right from Roman times through medieval, Tudor and Georgian to now. Our recommendation: a sweet Sally Lunn bun with cinnamon butter and house blend tea. You’ll forever remember this intimate brush with history.

Sally Lunns Historic Museum And Eating House, Bath Reviews
I ordered the beef trencher dinner and it was the most amazing dinner at a restaurant I have had. Without having a reservation I rocked up and they accommodated me straight away. Friendly and professional service; I was not expecting it to feel as though I was in a 5* restaurant but that was exactly how it felt. Quaint surroundings full of history made it an intimate experience. I would recommend the beef trencher; succulent and proper chunks of beef in thick onion gravy over the softest bread with a hint of garlic. The trencher was like a roll, brioche, teacake all rolled into one! I can't recommend this place enough. If you have a party of 2 or more then it is best to book ahead. Perfect joint for a romantic dinner and doesn't break the bank. Avg trencher was £13.
Nothing special, just toasted buns, I guess the whole appeal is the history behind it. The place is a quite fancy tea room, but again it's just toasted buns. I've had the lemon curd bun, not too bad. The coffee was good though and there's a small museum downstairs where you can buy plain buns and jam. The owner has some sort of fascination with number 8, all prices end with 8 for whatever reason. If you're around why not give it a go?
A lovely experience for afternoon tea. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys tea who is in or travelling to visit Bath. A vegan cream tea option was also available. Famous also for the buns, one is more than enough for one person, they are filling! They describe having a museum and gift shop in the lower ground, it is one set scene for the museum of a traditional bakery and the gift shop sells teas, tea towels and some preserves.
I gave this place 3 stars as we only had tea and coffee here, not a full meal so I cannot comment on the food. The decor is a bit dark and in need of a refresh and it can appear a bit dingy when you first go in; everywhere is dark wood and the floor is brown tiles too. A well thought out re-paint would really cheer the place up and bring in more guests. As would accepting credit and debit cards - that really limits the customers and two people left, while we were sitting there, as they couldn't pay by card.
Overall an enjoyable experience! Even though it was a long wait, turnover was quick. The host did a good job, checking on the people in the queue from time to time and giving updates. We enjoyed his humor even though the Spanish family didn't get him at all 😂. Food was served fast and of good quality. Service staff were courteous, friendly and helpful.
