The Corn Exchange, Hull
The Corn Exchange, Hull
An old public house which stands on the north side of Holy Trinity church at the junction of North Church Side with Market Place, shown on some plans as “Ye Olde Corn Exchange”. It doesn’t appear to be a listed building but does have an interesting history. The following is abridged from a detailed document by Robert Barnard, Local History Unit, Hull College which is available to view as a pdf document LinkExternal link .

The name Corn Exchange implies there was a corn market nearby. The “official‟ corn market had been at the southern end of Market Place from at least 1640 and it remained nearby until the new corn exchange was built in High Street in 1856. However there was a rival corn market at 50 Market Place on the corner of North Church Side for which deeds exist as far back as the late seventeenth century.

It is not possible to say when The Old Corn Exchange pub was first licensed as no leases have survived earlier than 1788. It was originally called “the Excise Coffee House” rather than “Corn Exchange” which may imply that it predates the corn market or it could refer to duty on coffee or it could be that it was a place where excise was collected. The coffee house changed its name to the Corn Exchange between 1807 and 1823, which coincides with the opening of the first recorded excise office in the Land of Green Ginger. The original coffee house was at 5 North Church Side; by 1863 the pub had expanded to occupy 2, 3, 4 & 5 North Church Side and included the wine and spirit business. The pub has not altered much since the last major alterations in 1969.
