Oran Mor is a superb venue at the top of Byres Road and to be honest it doesn't really matter if you like the play or not! The experience is one not to be missed - lunchtime short play with a tasty pie and choice of drinks (albeit limited!) after the play we stayed in the pub upstairs and it... More

It's exactly what the title implies; For the price of the ticket, you get a pint of beer (or a glass of wine in my case), either a meat pie or a quiche, and after you've eaten there is a short two actor play. What a great idea! The pies and wine were good, and the play "Flame Proof" was... More

I went here with 3 friends on Saturday about 20 minutes before the show "Flame Proof" starts and boy, it was almost a full house. After a short queue for the drink and food, we walk around to find good seats. We almost couldn't find any seat together but after venturing behind the stage curtain, we found enough seats for...

Set in a fabulously refurbished church, this is a mainstay of Glasgow life. It is exactly what it says; A Play. A pie. And a pint. All in your lunchtime. You might see some of Scotland's finest thespians, or an up and coming actor, but either way you'll have a fantastic time.

Unusual and can be great fun depending upon the play. Pint or wine good quality scotch pie with gravy or sauces or quiche and then the play. Seen a couple of very arty fatty ones but love the panto's not for children or easily offended. Some famous scottish faces often kicking around as well if you like to people watch

I had sore ribs after this play - it really was very funny which can't be said for a lot of on-stage productions. Oran Mor provided a beautiful and welcoming setting as well. I would most certainly visit again - the only negative I could give was the fact the vegetarian option of quiche ran out when we arrived some... More

Great one woman play "Miss Shamrock", a good Scottish pie, and a decent pint - all for a good price.

Great for the price, and especially good for a rainy day activity. Really enjoyable play which wasn't too long. Get there early to get a good seat.

So grateful to Trip Advisor reviewers for recommending this. It'll stay in my mind for years to come it was so enjoyable. Wish they did the same thing in my home town, I'd go every week. Excellent value at £8 on a Wednesday (£10 on other days) which includes a pie or slice of quiche and glass of wine /... More

Didn't really know what to expect with this one on our visit to Glasgow, but what a little gem! Theatre/bar is in the crypt/basement of an old church - the bar upstairs looks just as welcoming. The plays change weekly, and the deal is as says on the tin - a pie (not brill, but good enough), a pint (and... More
