Time to Celebrate Montol 2017
The great thing about this time of year is the chance to take part in a variety of festivities and parties. One of our favourites, simply for the sheer fun of it all, is Penzance’s Montol. Put simply, a reinvention of a traditional Cornish mid-winter customs and practices.
In 2017, Blacks of Chapel Street is delighted to have been asked to help sponsor towards the event. We would like to invite you to join us at the bar and dining room in Chapel Street to watch the afternoon and evening unfold.
First up is the Sundown Procession from the top of Causewayhead which will lead to a gathering for ‘Fire and Song’ in Chapel Street.
The choosing of the Lord of Misrule will happen just above Blacks of Chapel Street, outside the Union Hotel.
Then the main procession will commence at 1800 from Chapel Street with the evening culminating with the late night procession and ‘Chalking of the Mock’ outside the Admiral Benbow at about 10 pm.
So keep yourself energised and warm by visiting Blacks of Chapel Street. We have plenty of mulled cider/wine, hot teas & coffees, mince-pies and our full range of food and drinks available. Check our drinks menu here
Come and mingle and watch a delightful evening’s entertainment in Penzance.

Now that we have entered November it is time to give the hard working team at Blacks of Chapel Street a little bit of a break. So, as of next Sunday (6th of November), we will be closed for that and subsequent Sunday evenings. There may be the odd occasion when we open up on a Sunday night as the result of a special request, so please check with us to see if there are any changes to this plan….
Time for a Deal!
And that means we can return to our ‘Beat The Clock’ deals each Tuesday and Thursday night. For those of you new to this, it is simple – we note the time that you place your order for one of our main course options on the Beat The Clock menu and that time is the price you pay (don’t worry, we’re not being sneaky and using the 24hour clock format!). So if you ordered your main at 6:20pm then the price you pay is £6.20… as we said,simple!
Here’s a sample of the type of dishes that our talented kitchen is providing for the Beat The Clock menu (this does change from week to week).
BRAISED BEEF BRISKET
Served with braised red cabbage Bubble & Squeak and a red wine jus
BREADED CAJUN CHICKEN
Served with basil parmentier potatoes, sautéed greens & orange dressing
Olives, tomatoes, lemon, parsley, capers & anchovies finished with olive oil
