Famously situated opposite the site of the historic home of British boxing and sharing its name, this compact pub certainly punches above its weight.
Pictures of the men who boxed at The Ring and went on to become World, European and British Champions adorn the walls.
There’s plenty of seating outside the pub, which is directly opposite Southwark tube station and acts as a great focal point, landmark and meeting place right on the corner of Blackfriars Road and The Cut.
Openings times: 11am-11pm Monday to Wednesday, 11am-12am Thursday, 11am-1am Fridays & Saturdays and 12pm to 10:30pm on Sundays.
