Sally Lunns Historic Eating House and Museum
...the oldest house in Bath and home to the world famous Bath bun
One thing any visit to Bath must include is a visit to the Sally Lunn eating house to try the world famous Bath Bun or Sally Lunn bun.
Set in the oldest house in Bath c.1483, the Sally Lunn Eating House and Museum must be on everyone itinerary when visiting Bath.
Not only is the Eating House open for morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea, pre-theatre dinner and dinners providing authentic local cuisine including the Bath Bun developed by the young Huguenot baker Sally Lunn, the kitchen museum shows the actual kitchen used by Sally in those early days over 300 years ago.
You will also be able to see roman and medieval foundations of the house and finds from past excavations, and follow the house through to Sally’s time and the making of the famous bun.
The bun itself is both light and delicate and can be taken with both sweet and savoury accompaniments and therefore quickly became a favourite in Georgian times. Many attempts have been made to copy the bun but the very secret recipe is only passed on with the deeds to the property and is therefore still made in the same place by the same method today.
