|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.

|I have been using The Sun regularly at Lunchtimes, and cannot fault it's value for money meals and very good real ales - where else can you get a well looked after guest ale for £2.15 a pint these days? I've just had a beautifully cooked Sirloin steak including a guest ale for £10.30 this lunchtime. Our Social club had our Christmas lunch here and we were treated like royalty. One of the critiscisms of the Sun tends to be that it is full of "low-lifes and alchies" - I suggest you don't listen to this crap and try it for yourself. My one criticism is that there seems to be a very high turnover of staff - it is a very busy pub/restaurant and even the long term staff don't tend to recognise me, even though I've been using this pub weekly for the past 2 years!|

|A Wetherspoons, with all the associated caveats, but notable for serving regional ales (Surrey Hills, Hammerpot...) and a genuine craft cider (Gwynt Y Ddraig Black Dragon) so clearly it is not just going through the motions.|

|For a Wetherspoons this is not bad. The manager takes an interest in real ale and supports the local breweries. Service is not too bad (especially when compared with the dire offering in Horley).|
