A paperback book published in 1969, called "Inns of the Suffolk Coast" by Leonard P Thompson** contains the following extract:
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.
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.
Shown (we think) here on the 1903 OS map.
