Without a doubt, one of the top things to do in Bath is to visit Sally Lunn’s and sample one of the famous delicious Sally Lunn buns.
That was one of my first stops after I arrived in Bath today and checked into my hostel, the Bath YMCA. Before I headed out to Sally Lunn’s though, I stopped to have a chat with Steve and Helen about some of the top bars and restaurants in Bath. They had some great recommendations for me, a few of which I’ll talk about in my next blog post.
I was scheduled to record a podcast with Julian, the owner of Sally Lunn’s, at 2pm this afternoon, but I headed down there a bit earlier in order to have some lunch. And what a delicious lunch it was!
First off, I had a savoury Sally Lunn bun with beef and horseradish. That came with crisps and a wee bit of salad. The Sally Lunn bun, which is a bun not unlike brioche, was toasted and incredibly tasty. My friend is along with me here in Bath and we decided to split a sweet Sally Lunn bun for dessert.
This was my first experience with clotted cream and I can tell you now it’s not going to be my last. It was so tasty, slathered on one of the Sally Lunn buns along with raspberry jam.
After lunch I interviewed Julian for the Only in Bath podcast and then, with a full stomach, I headed out to have a look around inside Bath Abbey. This structure, another of the top attractions in Bath, is stunning both inside and out, from the flying buttresses on the outside to the huge stained glass windows inside. Once I was done here, it was off to the Roman Baths, to record my second podcast of the day.
