Wetherspoon has spent £2 million to open The Cribbar, in Newquay – its second pub in the Cornish town.
This is a surf-themed pub, with the architects working closely with the surfing community and surf magazines to create the design.
It is managed by Richard Hardiman (pictured) who was previously at the town’s The Towan Blystra.
The pub takes its name from the legendary Cribbar reef which stretches out under the sea from Towan Head. The massive waves which the reef creates have been surfed by only an elite group of surfers.
It has a 16-metre bar, as well as a dance floor. There is also a beer garden at the front of the premises, with sea views.
The Cribbar also features tables from local furniture designers, graffiti by two local street artists and even a picture of Wetherspoon’s founder and chairman, Tim Martin, surfing in Polzeath.
