Visited at 3pm today Sunday 20/2. No queue and managed to get a table for three on the top floor straight away, It was very busy. The staff are polite and professional. Space is very limited. If you haven't been here before it is all about the Sally Lunn Bun. I do not mean to disrespect the bun as it... More

There is also a wide... More

Outside, there is an old hut that a lady used to sit in and be carried. They show you how Sally Lunn made the buns and it is tiny inside. Not massive museum, just a small room but we had a bun afterwards and it was really nice.

The museum is a really tiny one and it showed to the visitors where Sally Lunn begin creating the legendary Sally Lunn's Bun. There are many tiny little things to buy, ranging from bread to butter spread to tea leaves. It's worth to pay a visit.

We went to Sally Lunn's on a Saturday . There was a queue but it was well managed and we only had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated. Food good although fairly pricey. Museum free and tea lovely!

If you are interested in history or food, or you are going into the tea shop its worth spending 20 minutes to have a look how things were done in the old days.

There was a sign outside saying that the museum was open, when we asked it appears that it's closed in January for cleaning

Our Museum is now open and we hope you will visit and then review us from a position of experience. The closure was not an annual or regular thing nor was it for cleaning and we did have signs up. Sorry you were inconvenienced but to give us a 1 star review without visiting due to us being closed for... More

The museum is little more than a cellar and the cost (50p) should give you an idea of the contents. The tea house, offering Sally Lun Bund, is another matter. Whatever you want to put on a bun, you'll find it here.

Visited as a lover of history and food and was not disappointed. Although there was a queue it moved quickly and we were seated in this interesting house. Menu was extensive and food was gorgeous. Customer service was excellent too. Museum was small but interesting and we bought some buns to take home too. Highly recommended.
