18th January 2006. Nash's Tudor Fish Restaurant has been located at number 17 Merrion Street since 1963. This is a view of the rear entrance, in a cul-de-sac off New Briggate; it also addressed as 51c New Briggate. The building in the foreground is a fine example of an eighteenth century house. Fronting on to New Briggate, it was built for Matthew Wilson in 1720 and appears on John Cossins' Plan of Leeds for 1725. Richard Kemplay established an Academy for Young Gentlemen here in 1817. The mansion house became the premises of the Victoria Club from 1877 to 1960 when the tenancy terminated. The house was built in brick but rendered in imitation rock faced rusticated ashlar. It is built on three storeys and was originally the ministers house. Nash's Fish Restaurant was previously sited at 42 Park Lane but it closed there on 18th November 1963. Nash's Fried Fish Business was started by Mrs Nash in Beeston around 100 years ago. Part of the restaurant's exterior is in the mock Tudor style. Photograph courtesy of James William Bell.
