|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. |

This large ‘Spoons right in the town centre was the first of 2 pubs that I visited in Redhill from the 2015 GBG.
Just before noon on a Saturday and its pretty busy & raucous already.
One barmaid on but she was quickly joined by the manager who served me. 12 hand pumps across 2 banks of 6 with most of them being National brands. I went for a few pints of Conwy Brewery Surfin' IPA @ 4.8%.
Very large pub that used to be a Magnet & Southern showroom, loads of seating in an open plan manner therefore the pub does not feel cluttered with tables and chairs.
Mixed clientele, a decent ‘spoons that’s definitely worth a visit when in Redhill.

|An acceptable Wetherspoon's outlet in respect of passable and predictable food, and similar with drinks choices, with the exception of the cask ale range which does change reguarly in accordance with the company's pro-ale policy. |
Service varies but is usually favourable; beers are well-conditioned and in 18 years (weirdly, to the exact day - it opened on 15 August '96 - meaning kids born that day are now eligible legally to drink here!) I have only ever had to return a handful of pints, though I'm not a weekly visitor.
The trouble is the clientele - not always civilized and not always tolerant or toelrable. But also the sheer blandness of it. It was a Magnet Southerns kitchen showroom when built and despite interesting Redhilliana strewn around the walls, it is a barrack-room for boozers which generates little natural atmos. Liking the outside seating option though; one can at least watch the traffic pass.
Sadly, as a cask chap, in Redhill this represents a competitively-priced good option for variety and quality. Otherwise, I couldn't be arsed.

|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.|
