Me and a rather large group of friends visited today for lunch. We booked in advance and generally had a rather enjoyable meal aside from a few let downs. Eggs and pie top were hard, there was an onion end in one of the salads....More

This place used to be packed on a Saturday night, sadly thats not the case anymore. Service was slow and the building just struggles to work unless its full. Hopefully it will pick up in the summer and return to form.

Went in to watch a semi final game with friends, found the first shift of bar staff either rude or miserable, although to be fair, those who started later were much friendlier. We only ordered the 'dirty chips', as nothing really appealed on the generic...More

The cuisine was good value for money and the drinks ran cheaply. I would come here again as part of my budget holiday. A special mention to the quirky urinals which are a must see highlight in the good town of Newquay.

We came in here for lunch while we were in the area, thinking it was still a Wetherspoons. When we picked up the menu we soon realised it was now part of another chain, and thought we’d give it a try. Oh how I wish...More

Hi If you go on the Cribber Website there is a Food and Drinks Menu and it should show various prices on there. Sorry I cannot be more specific.

More than 100 summer jobs have been created in Newquay with the opening of a new £2m pub. The Cribbar will employ 130 in the peak holiday season and about half that at other times, said operator JD Wetherspoon. It takes its name from the Cribbar reef, which stretches out under the sea from Towan Head. Newquay Safe, a partnership of local authorities and police, welcomed the new pub.
