Where to eat/drink
The Inferno recommends
The Pilot Hotel - Penarth
The Pilot provide a good range of pre-match food and drinks and is run by Devils fans, so you are ensured a warm welcome. Head out of BBT Car Park, past International pool, take third exit off roundabout, left at traffic lights, left at next traffic lights over fly over, turn left into Penarth, at mini roundabout take second exit, follow main road under the “Brains Bridge” to mini roundabout first exit off, follow road up slight hill to cross roads, at the two corner shops turn left and follow road all away around, you will see the pub on the left handside of the road!
Sounds complicated but is quite straight forward once you have done it once! Mileage from BBT – 1.5miles
Close to the Big Blue Tent...
The closest establishment to the Big Blue Tent and where Devils fans can often be found before and after games is the Harvester located within walking distance of the rink. The website, which can be found HERE gives opening times and directions by car.
Located on the otherside of the large roundabout from the rink is a Frankie & Bennies which can be found HERE, better food than the Harvester for sure, but also more expensive...
In the same general area there is a Mcdonalds for those looking for a quick fix, the signs should be viewable from the link road which will bring you into Cardiff Bay. Also in the same retail park is a Pizza Hut, the website with more details can be found HERE
The Big Blue Tent does serve the usual rink food of hotdogs, although it's wise to prepare yourself both mentally and physically before attempting to eat one.
Away from the rink and in Mermaid Quay (the centre of Cardiff Bay) are located numerous bars, retaurants and pubs with too many to list here. The website can be found HERE which will hopefully give a better idea :)
