Tidal Basin Tavern

Picture source: Southern Driver

The Tidal Basin Tavern was situated at 31 Tidal Basin Road, closing in 1997.
This pub dates back to the 1860. It had to closed in the late 1990s due to severe structural problems but the building was still there in 2010.

The earliest date I have for this pub is 1862.  It was a Trumanís pub, known in the 1970s as a strippers pub by day and a live music venue by night, always, it seems, a bit of a rough house.  It was acquired by Fullers Brewery in around 1990 and moved a little more up-market, but this new incarnation was not to last very long.

This pub has now been demolished.

Colin Knight 1963/1970 When berthed in the Vic dock, this pub along with the Connaught at the other end of the dock and the British Flag, in the middle, so to speak, gave us plenty to choose from. I do recall the Basin was a particularly noisy one, lots of heavy metal and rock bands performing there in later years. Gone now, two enormous towers going up on the site.
