CLOSING UPDATE

Once again we find ourselves in a position where we are forced to close our doors from 16th December. We'd like to say thank you to all those who have joined us over the festive period, it's been a pleasure. We put the utmost effort into reopening our doors to ensure that we met  all government guidelines when doing so. Please take a look below at the safety measures that will be in place for when things get back to normal.

 

For now, it’s a short goodbye but we’ll be back soon to welcome you into our venues. Our Thai food will be back on you tables and your glasses will again be full once again. In the meantime ensure you, your family and friends stay safe and when the time comes, we’ll be here. If we don't see you before, have a fantastic Christmas and a happy New Year.


Your safety and that of our staff is always the top priority so we've carried out risk assessments on all sites in preparation for opening which you can find links to below. We've re-trained our staff and arranged our service spaces to meet Government guidelines so that we all remain safe. Not only this but we have enhanced our cleaning and hand-washing schedules to make sure hygiene standards are at their highest. Our kitchen staff will be provided with appropriate PPE and our floor staff are able to access PPE and use it at their discretion.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OUR STORY

Situated opposite the historic home of British boxing, 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.

HISTORY

 The Ring public house is an ode to the historic boxing location in South London that stood opposite. Built in 1783, The Ring arena was originally called the Surrey Chapel, until the strange shaped building was bought by former British Lightweight champion Dick Burge and his wife Bella in 1910. They named it simply, ‘The Ring’ and it would become the first indoor boxing ring for the working classes. Together they staged many boxing matches with well known fighters such as Len Johnson, Jack Drummond, Alf Mancini, Jack Hood and the legendary Ted ‘Kid’ Lewis. Bella of Blackfriars’, as she was known, broke the taboo of women attending boxing bouts when in 1914 she and her actress friends were the first to become female regulars at ‘The Ring’.

 

During a daylight raid on 25th October 1940 a huge bomb landed on Blackfriars Road and seriously damaged The Ring but another bombing raid during March 1941 almost completely destroyed the building and it was eventually demolished.

 

The office building opposite which now stands on the site of the original ring is named Palestra, which is defined in Greek as a place for training and wrestling practice.
