Fish Market Hotel, Old Shambles. (c) Old Maps .
The Fish Market Hotel used to stand next door to what was the original location of Sinclair's Oyster Bar at the original Old Shambles, off Victoria Street and Old Millgate. On the Old Millgate side was the Oyster Bar and next door-but-one the other way was the Fox Hotel. The Fish Market Hotel was, as you'd expect, named after the Fish Market which stood in front of the pub in the middle of the Old Shambles in the early-mid-1800s. Later on that century the Fish Market became a Coal Exchange then a Cotton Waste Exchange .
