I had a 8 oz Sirloin Steak with chips peas, tomato and a mushroom plus a pint of a decent locally produced real ale for £5.75. If you knock off the £1.85 for the price of the pint it is only £3.90 for... More

Recently enjoyed a family birthday meal at Whetherspoons. Excellent value for money. The food was lovely, fresh and well presented courtesy of Sean the chef. Our waiter Jack was friendly, cheerful and efficient, nothing was too much trouble.

Three of us dined on the Tuesday steak night. The place was very busy to say the least. We all ordered the steaks. One annoyance was that we all ordered separately (company expenses) and each meal came separately. My colleagues were almost finished eating as the next meal came to the table. The meal was excellent value, cooked to my... More

We regularly drink and eat here, the food, atmosphere and staff are all excellent. We have never had a bad meal. Itor Lopez is the best waiter there, he's friendly, helpful and always has a smile on his face, the rest of the staff are wonderful too, and they make it a great place to chill out with great food.

We've just shared a snowy weekend with two friends in Thetford. On the first night we walked down to the town centre and spent a lovely couple of hours in The Red Lion. It is definitely the best Wetherspoons I've ever been in. Lovely and warm, clean modern and well decorated. The staff worked extremely hard and were polite and... More
