The Ring o' Bells was a small beerhouse situated on the corner of Fleet Street and Cheapside.  The buildings were demolished years ago and whilst it did not appear on local directories census records from 1861 onward record its existence.

Listed landlords were Robert Mellow (1861), William Gill (1871), his wife Mary Gill (1881) and Andrew Berry (1882). The 1891 and 1901 census records shows that 12, Fleet Street was no longer unoccupied.
