Awesome little pub, had a great evening in there recently. Can get really busy so be sure to get in sharpish to bag a good table. Draught ales are very well looked after and the selection rotates regularly. Love the boxing photo’s on the walls, a good bit of London history! Staff are very friendly & the Thai food that goes out always looks & smells amazing. Must try some soon!
A nice little pub right opposite the tube. Seems to get pretty busy and stay busy on the weekend, just as many people standing as seated.
Reasonable prices and friendly staff. House reds worth a try!

A good pub, with a chilled out, relaxed atmosphere. The location is great - the outside area is surprisingly spacious for being slap bang on The Cut. The staff are nice enough. Just one of those places you know that you can fall back on in one of those indecisive "where shall we meet?" panic moments.
A group of Qypers popped in here after the Modern Architecture walk last week (and you should check out the events group for more fun things by the way). The initial plan was to end up in the Windmill, but come 8.30 the sun had gone in, the wind was making us gold and this was the nearest pub.
And I like it a lot. I’m not a huge fan of boxing, so the memorabilia means nothing to me, but it’s not like they’re actually boxing in the pub is it?
The staff are friendly, the drinks are VERY cheap (three large glasses of wine for £12? YES PLEASE! It was kinda fun ordering each glass a different colour. Yep, this was the night we invented Neopolitan wine. Fun!
And the chips were tasty tasty! I’d come back just for those. But I don’t think I actually would come back. There’s nothing about the place that grabs me, but it’s very very good. I guess it’s just missing that extra special something.
But, I’m fussy and it’s a great pub. If you’re in the area, you really should pop in. i wouldn’t complain to much if you took me for a pint there either.
A nice little pub with a pugilist theme and reasonably cheap drinks. It has gastro aspirations and the food is pretty good. The kitchen and the bar apparently operate independently from one another, so you could sit around for a long while waiting for the loan waitress to emerge for you to place your order. Also, slightly suspect is the fact that you can’t pay for food with a credit card, but if you buy £5 worth of drinks at the bar you can get cash back. Not sure how that works. Show up with time to kill and cash to avoid these complications.
Friendly pub, with old pictures of boxers throughout - the pub stands on the site of a historical boxing ring. Quite small in size but warm and cosy. The outdoor seating is on the main road, but that does not seem to be much of a problem.
Standard selection of drinks with one or two interesting bottled beers. They serve English and Thai food, which looks quite nice, but I haven’t actually tried it. Great for a midweek get together, or a pre-theatre drink.
Quite a lot has changed since I first visited, but The Ring is still a bit of a shrine to the noble art of boxing. The walls are covered in boxing memorabilia, of posters of fights and boxers past. The upstairs boxing ring and gym are long gone and the people who run the bar no longer look like ex-pugilists and trainers.
It’s a bit of a disappointment on the “real” beer front, and gets VERY busy early evening.
Now I have spent many a night (and far too much of my wages) in this little pub on the corner of The Cut opposite Southwark tube. It was tredied up- but in a good way, about 5 years ago, it has a friendly atmosphere, great staff and pretty decent food (mainly thai for around a fiver).
Good in the summer with the tables outside.
The best bit are the pictures of boxers on the wall from a bygone age. The place used to be an old mans pub with a very bright green carpet and it had, for many years, a boxing ring upstairs.
Wouldn’t bother with the cocktails, if you are after them ask where Jacks is around the corner - The Rings larger trendier big brother.
