Food Review: Sally Lunn House

Here is a fluff free review of Sally Lunn’s Historic Eating House and Museum, Bath, England:


Notable Mentions: Lemon Curd Bunn
Overall Flavours: Average to Good
Staff Efficiency: 
Ambiance: Average – the interiors are simple but then again, you’re not visiting for the interiors, are you? 
Cheap (Sterling Pound 0 – Sterling Pound 25)
Tips: Either visit during off-peak hours or make a reservation because queues are a constant occurrence
Additional Information: After being told that the bun(n)s from Sally Lunn’s are basically a rite of passage, I obviously had to devour them; indeed, I was unaware of the size of 1/2 a bunn so ordered two and was definitely stared at, considering the size! However, me being me, I was unfazed and enjoyed the fact that I could try both a savoury bunn and a sweet bunn – I do wish I had ordered a different savoury bunn but I didn’t want to eat (direct) animal byproducts that day hence why I opted for the vegetarian bunn, which tasted mediocre. The sweet bunn, on the other hand, was everything I love: a warm bun(n) with melting butter and (delicious) lemon (curd)! I would definitely recommend visiting to taste the lemon curd bunn but later heard that the cinnamon butter bunn is a favorite among customers so also recommend that.
