Taste for yourself the famous Sally Lunn's Buns

Bath, Somerset

Put our buns to a taste test and see which one you prefer. Will it be the Sally Lunn Bun or the Bath Bun?

Famous for our sweet treats, Bath has a long standing history with the bun. Pay one of the oldest houses in Bath, Sally Lunn’s, a visit and sample the sweet, light, brioche style bun which has been popular since the 17th Century. Top yours with cinnamon butter, lemon curd or milk chocolate butter for something truly decadent. 

Alternatively, dine in the historic Pump Room for an indulgent speciality in Bath; afternoon tea. Your afternoon tea will come with traditional dainty sandwiches and scones, but also the Bath Bun. This bun has currents sprinkled on top and a lump of sugar baked into the middle certain to satisfy even the sweetest tooth. 

Whilst in the Pump Room why not sample the spa water that Bath is famed for? But beware, it’s an acquired taste and not as delicious as the buns!
