The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Felixstowe Bath Hotel Tap

Felixstowe Bath Hotel Tap

Closed between 1903 and 1926?

Bath Hill

grid reference TM 309 346

There is a reference to the (Bath) "Tap" as being a detached wooden building on the beach run by a Mr & Mrs Gee in September, 1854.Inns of the Suffolk Coast, Leonard P Thompson, 1969

A public House appears on the 1903 OS map at this location - it's assumed to have been the Bath Hotel Tap; if you can confirm or refute this, please let us know. This building isn't shown as a pub by the 1926 sheet so presumably closed before that year.

The 1881 census records this as the Hotel Tap, but the preceding entry is the Bath Hotel.

The pub is shown (we think) here on an old OS map from about the end of the 19th century (interactive map), immediately to the south of the Bath Hotel.
