I don't understand why there is an obsession with the Bath bun. I tried this and found it to be a boring white roll that any supermarket would sell for pennies.

£2.5 for a cup of tea, £3 for a bun that is actually only bread ... not impressed ! I’m sure you could get a Bath bun somewhere else for one third of that price !

Shame to say we had a bad experience here. Tea too strong, when I asked that they bring the water and tea bag separately so that I could do it myself. Not that difficult a request. Disappointed with the bath bun, really not that special...More

Though the appearance of this tea room is authentic/alluring my guest was shocked to observe her Earl Gray tea was in a tea bag whilst the Victoria sponge slice was plain on top, is no icing sugar! The staff were very friendly and excellent though...More

I took a friend for high tea and although very nice not quite what I expected. We were asked to choose which sandwiches ( 1 sort each) and cake (a slice each) we would like. We also had a scone/jam/cream and pot of tea. All...More

We visited on a Monday for lunch. We were initially drawn by the cafe front as it's oldy worldy which is what we love. Same with the crockery. It wasn't busy so we easily got a table...by the window which was nice. Not a large...More

I can now answer my own question in case anyone needs this info in the future. The Bath Bun Tea Shoppe does offer a beautiful gluten-free high tea selection (sandwiches, scones, treats) but not a GF bath bun itself. Still... More
