Bath and the Cotswolds Restaurants

Sally Lunn's

Updated 05/29/2014

Fodor's Review

Small and slightly twee, this tourist magnet near Bath Abbey occupies the oldest house in Bath, dating to 1482. It's famous for the Sally Lunn bun, actually a semisweet bread served here since 1680. You can choose from more than 30 sweet and savory toppings to accompany your bun, or turn it into a meal with such dishes as duck with orange sauce. There are also economical lunch and early-evening menus. Daytime diners can view the small kitchen museum in the cellar (30p

for non-dining visitors).

The future will all be about the bun - the Sally Lunn Bun. I have travelled a lot and now discovered the meaning of life, the holy grail of flour confections. This is just the best.

The best place to eat in Bath in my opinion

Sally Lunn's is the oldest house in Bath. The food is reasonably priced and very delicious. The cuisine is simple down home cooking and the desserts are wonderful. I have eaten at this restaurant twice when I have visited Bath and have had a great experience both times. The only drawback is that because it is so great, it can be crowded.
