Time Out says
A traditional Southwark pub that takes patriotic pride in its position across the road from the home of Great British boxing - the Blackfriars Ring boxing arena that was sadly destroyed back in the Blitz. Expect a boxing theme to the aesthetic, with pugilism memorabilia alongside the burgers, Big Apple hot dogs and booze.
There's a focus on real ale here too, with a regularly rotating selection of guests alongside a few that stay - some of London's best breweries showcase their wares here. Well kept lagers do brisk business too. Outside of the beer expect a short wine list and all the usual spirits and mixers. Keep an eye out for special offers and seasonal menu items, too.
It's worth noting that it's not just about the boxing here - all the big sporting events are usually shown.

Staff deliberately try to overcharge. Bought 3 doubles and charged £35.40. When challenged barman stated was now £30 and he had hit wrong button. No apology! When asked for receipt at the now £30 price, saw the doubles had been put through each as 2 singles to inflate price. Disgusting to take advantage in busy pub. Ask for a receipt or be ripped offf
So cozy it feels like you are in your best friends house!
Wonderful selection of beers and the Smokin' Joe burger is awesome!
Cracking local pub. They really care and know a lot about their beer selection which is ever changing. The staff treat you like your at your local pub. They do amazing Hotdogs too and tunes are great.
