Best road bike for £800 or under

I decided to open my own topic because I noticed everyone asking about bikes in the new bike topic were not receiving replies.

My Grandad is looking to replace his old 5 speed vintage bike.

When we were on holiday we rented some bikes with index shifters which he loved and they also had 30 gears, which was brilliant for him as old age is looming and the massive choice of gears was brilliant and made climbing easy for him.

I am not saying these are a necessity, just that those were some of his preferences, to have index shifting (which I think most new bikes have anyway) and a nice range of gears to choose from, unlike his 5 speed at the moment.

Any suggestions at all would be lovely,

Thank you very much :)
