No trip to Bath can be complete with out a trip to Sally Lunn's, there is something here for everybody, we called in to have a look downstairs at the Museum in the Cellars you can see the Roman and Medieval foundations of the house and the original street levels marked out by cardboard cutouts of a Roman soldier and a knight. there are finds from recent excavations on display and of course the original kitchen with it's faggot oven, great Cooking range and many old baking utensils. There is a small shop here and this is where you can buy one of the famous sally Lunn Buns. We bought one and had it for breakfast in the morning, it was lovely with Egg, Beans and Sausage.

On the right when you enter are the 'Refreshment rooms' where you can enjoy morning coffee, light meals and cream teas. In the evening candlelit dinners are served (booking is advised)

Sally Lunn was a french refugee who arrived in England over 300 years ago, She baked a rich round large bread that is now known as The Sally Lunn Bun, This bun became a popular delicacy in Georgian England and it's great taste and lightness allow it to be enjoyed with either sweet or savoury foods. The original and very secret recipe is passed on with the deeds to Sally Lunn?s house and is still made by hand.

Their website has some great info, not only about themselves though. You can download their menu's as well as the timetable for the city tour bus's, Travel guides, event listings and much more, Even listings of other restaurants in Bath that you could try.
