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.
