One of Bath’s famous sites is Sally Lunn’s. It is one of Bath’s oldest houses located in the centre of Bath. Not only is it a historic site, it is a lovely tea house, home of the original Bath Bun.
Sally Lunn’s is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Their menu offers historic refreshment based on the original Sally Lunn bun – still baked from a secret recipe and rich in local cuisine and authentic historic dishes. You can have the bun with clotted cream, butter, jam, and then with some English cuisine, like steak and ale!
As it is one of the oldest houses, space is not too generous. So do expect to queue for sometime especially during peak times, i.e. lunch or pre-theatre. However, it is definitely worth the wait and the waitresses there do keep you informed.
After having something to eat at Sally Lunn’s you can visit the kitchen museum in the basement. In the basement, it shows the actual kitchen used by the young baker Sally Lunn in Georgian Bath to create the first Bath bun – an authentic regional specialty now known the world over! Definitely worth a visit.
Even if you don’t get a chance to actually eat there, you can buy a Sally Lunn bun to take home, yum yum!
