Sally Lunn’s

4 North Parade Passage Bath BA1 1NX 01225 461 634

We say

Firmly on the tourist trail but worth stopping at to sample their eponymous buns, still made using the original 15th-century recipe. The original Sally Lunn was a 17th-century refugee from France, and there’s more than a hint of brioche in her bun, a rich but light bap that the rickety little bakehouse serves up toasted (with smoked salmon), savoury (BLT) or sweet (smothered in home-made ginger butter). Opt for a “trencher”, hot stews served on a bread base, if you’re after a more filling meal.

You say Average Rating ★★★☆☆

Transported back in time ★★★★☆

Yes this is quite a small little cafe with a wealth of history. Yes it's on the tourist trail so can be very busy at lunch time, but we decided to go for brunch we turned out to be perfectly timed as there was plenty of room for us, but still a lively buzz around the place. You ust try one of Sally Luns Buns on a trip to bath, you won't find anything else quite like them

Try a bun without dining ★★★☆☆

We wanted to try a Sally Lunn Bath bun but wanted to keep exploring so we visited the basement kitchen museum where they well boxed buns for £1.60 each. A much cheaper idea if you don't want to dine in - and often it's too busy at lunchtime.
