|Too right tempest. Your last sentence accurately describes the OAP's recent contributions. Steve P should really concentrate on Croydon - where he is a well known (and avoided) bore.|

|If a freehold pub is owned outright (JDW now have many), no rent is paid or borrowing required - and it is noteworthy that this is the only (erroneous) dispute Slerpy is able to take with croydonpeer's comprensive post. So instead, he can only try to insult and sarcastically point out a typo.|

|Leasehold or Freehold both cost money, 'spoons either pay rent or borrow to buy the premises. Croydonpeer , "someting" do you mean Sompting near Littlehampton or something else? I have noticed that you only post after school or during the school holidays.|

|The place IS thriving - selling food and drink from 8am to 11pm; drink to an even later hour. I'm sure JDW will be greatful for your advice, but with a 250% increase in share price over the last 5 years, about 50% a year, they know what they're doing!|
Prices vary on a successful formulaic basis from region to region - based on the cost of stock, transportation and overheads. Your assumptions on pricing are random and inaccurate; for example, you are unaware whether the premises is occupied as a freehold, leasehold or otherwise.
BTW, the premises was not a carpet warehouse and there is no JDW in Dorking. And Corals may just have someting to say about your plans to 'knock-through - JDW, also, would certainly be unlikely to alter the busiest pub in East Surrey.

|I rather like this 'warehouse pub' with good food & great beer. But its prices irritate.|
Why on earth does Wetherspoon consider that its huge, souless, beer hall at Redhill is one of its premium price sites? Why charge us impoverished Redhill folk abt 8% more than other local, more up-market, 'spoons?
Redhill's roast/steak & curry night prices are 50p more than other pubs in more expensive towns nearby. With 4 people eating & drinking, it's cheaper to drive to their more upmarket pub conversions at say Dorking/Purley/Oxted?/Croydon/Selsdon. We'd treat The Sun as our regular default canteen, but that surcharge does deter us.
Other Wetherspooons are in expensively converted buildings, on prime sites. This one is just a huge ex discount carpet warehouse below a concrete multistory car park, on the unpopular edge of town. (A town that's packed with unrentable empty shops). This pub's neighbors show what Redhill customers want. It is next to a Poundstretcher; a 39p birthday card shop ('to show she's worth it'?), a Next obsolete stock discounter; a Poundland, a 'mum saved at Iceland' & assorted sub-discount units.
It must be one of the cheapest buildings Wetherspoons lease, by volume. If they choose to drop the Redhill surcharge, the place would thrive. They might then knock-through to both neighbors & increase its warehouse chic.
