History of our most famous buns
There is a consensus in Bath that the Sally Lunn Bun is the original Bath Bun.
Legend has it that Sally Lunn was a Huguenot refugee who arrived in Bath in 1680 and started work with a baker in Lilliput Alley.
It is believed that Sally Lunn introduced a brioche-style bun to the baker and soon it became very popular in the city.
The recipe is a closely- guarded secret which is now passed on with the deeds of the cafe.

Free tastings of the Sally Lunn Bun are available at Sally Lunn's throughout the Great Bath Feast as part of its Taste Trail.
However, the first record of an official Bath Bun was at the Great Exhibition at Crystal Palace in London in 1851.
At the exhibition just under a million London Bath Buns were eaten.
This bun, or something very similar, is still available to buy in Bath at the Pump Room and the Hands Traditional Tea Rooms.
The bun is made from a sweet yeast tea bread dough and is sprinkled with crushed sugar after baking and often has a sugar lump in the centre.
