This is a very busy spoons great beer and the food is always good too.
The only problem as also said by steve is the is not enough staff so be prepered to wait.

If you are dying for a drink, I suggest that you quench your thirst in one of Ripley’s many other pubs first before venturing into the Red Lion because the service at times is appalling … Waiting 5 minutes or more to be served is not unusual. But it is NOT the fault of the bar staff … It is the lack of them that is the problem. Those who are on duty … sometimes it seems like there are only 2 or 3 of them … not only have to serve drinks, they take the food orders, serve the food AND clear the tables … which must be pretty daunting for a large busy pub !!!

The positive side is Wetherspoon’s very competitive pricing … both on food and drink … (maybe it is cutting down on staff cost that keeps the prices down !!!) Another plus point is the selection of real ales … At the moment, Abbot, Directors and Pedigree are “resident” with three or four guest ales, although it would be nice to see a few more session beers included in the selection …
