|Recently re-vamped by Green King as their idea of a gastropub - it fails on all counts. A huge 'eating area' that owes more to Berni-Inns 1980 than anything more recent. Their 'cheap' 2-for-1 meals that appear to come from the freezer and microwave. Money wasted on some trendy, uncomfortable furniture with manager strictly enforcing 'policy' that customers must not sit at any bar - perhaps why it can be empty mid-evening onwards. 'Average' real ales never achieve excellence, and rarely a full measure with a never-ending rotation chosen blindly by the lager-drinking manager. An empty fireplace that's never seen a fire. Pub just about makes OK in summer when you can sit outside; zero interior character or cosiness for a winter's pint. There are many better pubs within a 5 minute walk; all understand what customer service is really about - Anglers, Clock House, or the King's Head that does excellent gastro food without need to call it 'gastro'. |
Shame it was, and could be again, a friendly, cosy local pub. Unlikely under current manager and until Head Office realise missed opportunity of their revamp.

|One of my favourite pubs along this section of The Thames. Relaxed atmosphere, dogs allowed etc. While there was some music in the front bit, they left it off in the back bit so you can enjoy one of the hallmarks - in my book - of a pleasant pub experience: the general hum and hubub of conversation and the clink of glasses at the bar. Didn't try the food this time: will next. Worth a visit.|

|wife and I called here for lunch last Friday and pub was very busy with lots of punters sitting outside as it was really nice day. The two bar staff were doing a brilliant job touching all bases, pulling pints, fetching and carrying to and from the kitchen, due to staff shortage but this inevitably meant customers had to wait a while to be served. We were warned food order could take half an hour but as we were in no rush we stuck with it and enjoyed the beer - Greene King bitter. Food arrived within twenty minutes and my steak and chips with side salad was fine as was my wife's scampi. Nice buzz in the pub from different age groups students plus locals so all in all would definitely return.|

|Went this last Sunday evening just past. |
Since it was a nice cold night, we looked forward to a nice welcoming, warm pub — maybe even a fire going?
Not a chance.
LOUD music pumping through the speakers… Sky telly flickering the greatest hits from the Afghan war.
Guy wasting his coins on the Deal or No Deal fruit machine while his wife sat staring into her glass.
Sorry. We won't be back.
Beer was… OK.

|The Tide End has been subtly refurbished inside with main change being the extension of the rear dining area from what was an outside decking, although plenty of outside seating remains front and back of the pub. The atmosphere is cosy, the beer's good and the menu, although I have yet to taste any of it, appears an above average selection of pub grub. |
