Just been in for early evening meal, steak and chips and large gammon, egg, pineapple, chips, peas and onion rings, pint of strongbow and Doombar, all for less than £20, brilliant value, friendly staff and good service. Highly recommended.

Bad service, Little tarts serving with no manners, filthy tables, CRAP food (cold when served and has been stood for ages) childs dessert never arrived, too dark. Its basically a really bad wetherspoons. Avoid. go somewhere else - you are in newquay for heavens sake!!!!!

Went in here to try and grab a drink while waiting to meet some friends. After waiting 15 minutes and being ignored I left without being served. 2 other people around me also left. Staff seemed disinterested and couldn’t care less

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.
