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.
Individual Beef & Red Wine Pie
The kitchen team have excelled themselves today with the crafting of a delicious individual beef & red wine pie. The tasty dish has been complemented with roasted vegetables, buttered mash and a housemade jus that sets it off perfectly.
So if you are looking for a freshly made and filling meal to keep yourself content and warm this February, come down to Blacks of Chapel Street.
Other Specials Available
If you don’t fancy the dish of the day (and we can’t believe that you wouldn’t!) there are plenty of other choices to consider. Blacks of Chapel Street has a range of specials and standard menu fare on offer. With daily fresh fish delivered from Newlyn and proper vegetarian options, you will find something to enjoy.
