Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Ring

Compact pub on an angled corner plot, with much-needed additional seating on benches outside on the pavement. Tidy interior featuring boxing-related memorabilia apparently inspired by the eponymous site which once stood nearby. On this visit, I found Doom Bar, Truman's Two Halves (£4.60, Tiny Rebel Cwtch and Joe's Cider from Dorset from four of the five handpumps, with a new real ale being pulled through on the other. Run by the small Windmill Taverns group with several other bars in the vicinity. Handy for Southwark tube and Waterloo East railway station.

The Ring has a small L shaped interior that was busy with some very shouty people during my visit one evening just before Christmas. The din meant that the background music was pointless. The walls are covered with boxing paraphernalia. The bar was stocked with premium draught products and I counted five hand pumps. Due to the popularity of this pub I was only able to make out the Sharp’s Doom Bar pump clip. Burgers and hot dogs were advertised, but I didn’t note the prices. I would like to return here when it is less busy.

The building stands opposite the site of an indoor boxing ring destroyed in the blitz,hence the name and the photos inside of pugilists.However that aside there is no longer real boxing connection and the interior has a smart feel with an upmarket colour scheme,wooden floor and an upholstered bench seating running around two walls.Some bar stools are placed along a drinking shelf to the side,and the pavement seating was proving popular.The bar sits in one corner and has two ranks of 7 keg taps (including some leading craft keg brewers),while the 5 handpumps sit between. On my trip besides the regular Doom Bar,there was New River Riverbed Red,XT8,Brick Brewery Kinsale and a very reasonable Roosters YPA,at an unreasonable £4.50.
Food available ,mainly burgers and hot dogs.
A reliable place for real ale in this neck of the woods,and a firm commitment to stock respected brewers means I will call in again despite the rather usury pricing.
