The famous delicate Sally Lunn’s Bun in Bath was a joy to eat with their homemade sweet cinnamon butter.
There are replicates of this world famous delicacy all over the globe from United States to New Zealand, but the one and only place to get taste the original is at Sally Lunn’s Eating House in Bath.
The bun has the perfect texture of soft and fluffy on the inside and warm and crispy on the outside, and this is only the base for the delicious toppings they have to offer, we ordered the following:
Cinnamon Butter ( £3.88):
Milk Chocolate Butter (£4.38):
Creamy chocolatey butter is not something you’ll see everyday and at Sally Lunn’s they have done a decent job. The flavour of the chocolate is subtle and I would prefer it if the flavour of the chocolate stand out more than the butter.
Smoked Salmon Pate (£6.98)
As well as sweet toppings, Sally Lunn also offer savoury selection for customer with less of a sweet tooth. The Salmon Pate is served in a oval shape with a side salad and the warm bun on the side, the pate is blended with dill and a wedge of lemon on top for that citrus kick.
Vegetable Trencher: (£8.98)
Maybe my less favourite from the order, with just simple parboiled vegetables that were the lightly sauteed and a some rich melted cheese to topped the bun. This was no where as pleasant or as exciting to eat at the other topping but probably the healthiest.
We have given Sally Lunn’s a 4.5 Yums because of it’s unique texture and flavour, the decor and history behind the cafe takes you right back to the 18th century and it is just a delight to be having tea and cakes inside.
Don’t forget to grab yourself some extra buns and cinnamon butter in the museum in the basement.
