Does anyone know if the Eggy was ever referred to as "The Tap Hotel"?

Never heard of it called The Tap but there is one at Eastham Ferry think its proper name is The Pier Hotel.

There is a Census Report from 1891 stating that a resident was living at the Tap (or Top) Hotel, Tobin Street and at Hotel Cottages 48 Tobin Street. I suspect the cottages were on part of the grounds of the Tap Hotel.

There was only three public houses on Tobin Street - "The Ferry Hotel", "Ferry Pier Hotel" and the "Long Pull" so the Tap Hotel wasn't one of those. It therefore leaves the Egremont Ferry/

I didn't know that there where 3 pubs in Tobin St, Godfrey's map of 1899 shows only 2 and 1 is where the Egremont Ferry is now. I had heard of the "Long Pull" and assumed it was the 1 near the top of Tobin St

The public house 'The Egremont Ferry' still has some interesting features and before WW2 an ice cream and amusement arcasde opened. Above were the well known timber yards of Edmunds, Taylor and Company.

There were 3 pubs in Tobin Street. 'The Ferry Hotel', 'Ferry Pier Hotel' and 'The Long Pull'.

Great picture, kimpri1. Do you know the date - it looks like they're celebrating a Coronation which would make it 1902 or 1911. Anyone know when the Pub was built?

Judging by the portraits on the wall i'd say it was the coronation of Edward VII and Alexandra 1902
