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

I have been here twice now and both times the service has been really poor...we were spoken to very rudely and felt very uncomfortable! The food was ok but let down by the service.

Called in for morning coffee with a friend. Prompt pleasant service from a barman who also offered to carry the coffee to our table as we are both on crutches. Uncluttered surroundings and comfortable seats. On a purely selfish note, I was pleased to find...More

Poor preparation leads to poor performance, half term, not enough staff on that ridiculous sized bar, dirty tables and everything just takes an age, too big for what it's there for. Cheap yes but there are better options for a few quid more

Recently visited here whilst on holiday with family. Nice menu with lots of choice. Food arrived in good time and was tasty and good value! Lots of activities on during the day for children - although didn't sample them ourselves

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.
