Sally Lunn’s

In 1996 Hazle met the owners at a trade fair, then at Sally Lunn’s Tearooms in Bath. In 1680 Soli Luyon, a young French Hugenot refugee, worked at a bakery in Lilliput Alley. Her light, rich brioche buns were so good it became a fashionable meeting place, and people still flock today. The secret recipe, re-discovered in a cupboard in the 1930s, now passes with the house deeds.

Bath’s Oldest House
Dated c1482 when major works took place, the site of a Roman inn cAD200 was exposed under the cellar floor in 1984-5. From 676AD this was a kitchen for the Benedictine monastery, part of Bath Abbey until 1539 when the Dissolution of the Monasteries occured. From 1705 new buildings sprang up from Bath limestone in Palladian style, as glimpsed left above. Some streets were raised a floor including Lilliput Alley, re-named North Parade Passage. Sally’s Cellar Museum displays the varied floor levels.

 This Cellar Museum was once the ground floor. Sally’s faggot oven burnt hazel bundles. With the ash removed, buns baked in the residual heat. Later coal ovens were built. There is now a modern bakery on the second floor.

Part of Museum shop, this display is in an old well. Sally Lunn ceramics were sold there 1996-2006 and mini teapots 1996-2001. 
