Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Red Lion (JD Wetherspoon)

Always an inn, rather than a conversion, so the seating / dining areas in the original part of the building retain some character. That said, the extension over what was probably the rear courtyard is quite well done, and if that doesn't take your fancy then the outside area has now been extended out into the Market Place. Disappointingly, the two banks of five handpumps were offering a fully duplicated selection of Ruddles, Doom Bar, Abbot, Hobgoblin and Adnams Broadside (but was just £1.99, so one can't complain too much).

The Red Lion is an original pub and is grade II listed, hence no dark blue and gold plastic signage. It's been given a typical modern JDW makeover with eating areas either side at the front and a smallish square bar area behind with a mix of seating. As it's just under five years old the fixtures and fitting are better than average.
Being a relatively small JDW in a smallish market town means that half of the ten hand pumps were taken up with the JDW Trio Of Doom. At least the rest were all in use with Grainstore 1050, Adnam's Mosaic, Great Newsome Frothingham Best, Gadd's No 5 and Elland Beyond the Pale. I went for the 1050 (£2.05) which was in excellent nick and also had a go at the Steak Club (£6.09).
I thought this was a pretty good Spoons, it's GBG 2017 listed.

Steve of N21 left this review about Red Lion Inn

This pub has just been purchased by Wetherspoons who have reputedly put aside over a million pound budget to do it up.
Hopefully that is the case and another one may come back from the dead.
