New Wine List at Blacks of Chapel Street
We are really excited to announce our new Summer 2018 wine list! After much research during the Winter months, we have come up with a new local supplier of affordable quality wines who is as passionate about getting the right balance as we are.
The wine list is now available – you can check it out from the Menu section of our website, or simply pop in to see us. Many of the wines are available by the glass – 175ml or 250ml. Additionally, this year we are pleased to be offering a 500ml carafe offering on certain wine for those who may find a full bottle just a little too much.

Christmas Lights Switch On
Today, Saturday 25th of November is the Christmas Lights switch on in Penzance. A great day to see the streets turned over to pedestrians and people free to walk around town and explore the shops and take part in the start of the festivities.
Chapel Street is, believe it or not, also closed to traffic (although we have had an interesting morning watching some who think that if they drive the wrong way up the one-way system nobody will notice…). This has allowed Blacks to place tables and chairs outside, with a lovely big heater and blankets to help take away the winter chill (authentic!). But even better is the great choice of food and drinks on offer.
All this lunchtime and through the afternoon there is a winter warming menu with some delicious food to chose from. If you are looking for a hot jumbo bagel with a range of tasty fillings, or maybe a bowl of heart-warming soup, then we have plenty of choices.
Alongside the regular selection of Voyager coffees and Novus teas, we have put together a couple of hot alcoholic drinks – a mulled cider and a mulled wine. These have been quality checked this morning and are just great for keeping the spirits up on this cold winter’s day.
So if you are in Penzance this afternoon for the big Christmas lights switch on, make sure you come down Chapel Street as part of your explorations.
Open tonight as well for the regular evening menu, including daily fish specials – we won’t be expecting you to sit outside as Chapel Street will be allowing cars to use it again, but the real fire will be lit inside and you will be assured of a warm welcome by all the team at Blacks.
New Cocktail Offering at Blacks….

Hot Chocolate Adventures at Blacks of Chapel Street
We’ve been busy experimenting with our scrummy Italian ‘hot’ chocolate to see what new flavours and experiences we can discover and, in turn, offer to you…
So with our range of delicious syrups to add as a base and the topping of whipped cream, white chocolate buttons, marshmallows and a flake the combinations are really down to your imagination! If you feel like experiencing a little ‘boost’ then why not add a shot of your favourite tipple – we’ve discovered that Pusser’s Gunpowder strength rum works rather well…
