|The majority of people realise that Wetherspoons outlets vary greatly,sadly the Sun is a prime example of how not to run a pub, the customers are the type that are generally found in a park with a tin in their hand, strangely Redhill has an awful lot of this type. The Garland which is nearby has a far better customer base creating a pleasant atmosphere and is well supported even though there is a huge price differential. Constuctively the Sun needs to get their staff to work in a proper manner, they are a slovenly disaffected crew. The service is dead slow and random, their scintillating social life dominates their conversation and time.The bar is smothered in beer and is as good as superglued. The real ale that I bought but did not finish was Grainstore Gold, normally a very decent pint but served in foul condition.The range of ales was particularly poor, much better Breweries locally are available,Langhams, Dark Star, Dorking etc.The overall impression that I gained was that no one in the pubs heirarchy can be bothered to improve the place even in the smallest way.Perhaps the Area Manager or the Manager should visit the Garland and experience how a pub SHOULD be run.Very rarely does a pub earn a zero but there is no light in the bleak Sun. 0/10.|

|The previous poster should try a dating site - rather than a pub/beer one!|
Well above average Wetherspoon, and well managed. Good location and excellent beer quality.
And a great full English breakfast for £3.09.

|Tom does a decent job all things considered. Beer range variable but what is on is kept well. Adnams Ghost Ship and King Red River for example just now. |
Spent most of the night marvelling at the wonderful Sadie, who served impeccably and also looked superb. Cheekbones like geometry. A much-needed touch of class to this otherwise ordinary venue.

|For many of us, the GBG is a blast from the past. The Sun is a better Wetherspoon in terms of food and drink quality - and the staff are friendly. Everything works well under the watchful eye of Tom, the manager.|
With a bus stop nearby - as well as a supermarket, bookies, cashpoint and newsagents - its a pleasant spot to pass a bit of time whilst keeping in touch with the world, via the excellent and free Wi-fi.

|I believe The Sun makes an appearance in the 2016 GBG too. For all the place's unattractive aspects, it at least maintains a reasonable slew of well-kept cask ales. Okay this is in accordance with general Wetherspoon policy, but as we know, not all their venues measure up as well as they might. |
