The impressive nineteenth century parish hall building at 19 East Morton Street is the home of Thomas Tosh’s cafe and gallery. There’s good home baking and fine art from local and national artists here.

Thomas Tosh’s interiors, books and toiletries sections are also located in the old parish hall building. It’s a great place to relax or enjoy fine shopping.

And the reason for our name? Thomas Tosh was a character created by the writer Joseph Laing Waugh, one of Thornhill's best-known residents. Waugh’s stories contained memorable characters such as Robbie Doo, Betty Grier and Luiffy the grocer who lived in Thornhill and nearby.
