Very much enjoyed it!

What a good idea combining food & a play! Eat whilst you watch, I didn't even see the one hour past - sign of a good time. I would definitely recommend it if you're in Glasgow.

Saw Butterfly on 31st January. Excellent performance and the hour just flew by. Had the quiche instead of the pie, very nice but tiny portion! Get there early (we arrived about 30 mins before the start and only just managed to get last 3 seats together)

The theatre is located in the basement of Oran Mor, a church converted into a large pub. The pub itself is interesting and has a large selection of single malts .... a sampling of which is not recommended prior to lunch and the play. Not if you want to stay awake that is! You basically book at the box office... More

Just been to my 5th Pantomime Pie and a Pint and it was as brilliant as usual. The only problem is that it's becoming too popular and we are having to remember to book earlier and earlier. We had friends from Inverness and Aberdeen come to see it,

My friends and I came to see the Christmas panto, "The Emperor's New Clothes." For £15, we each got a pint to drink, a pie to eat, and a hilarious panto to watch. It was the first panto I had ever seen, and the atmosphere was very enjoyable. The actors onstage were great at getting the audience involved and the... More

Myself and friends paid £10 each to drink a pint (or wine) have a pie (or Quiche) and watch a play. Been a few times and would recommend it to anyone. Plays/pantos vary but 4/5 times they are funny and lovely atmosphere.

Fantastic venue, this place was once a church and has been saved by being put to multiple entertainment uses. Every corner of the building is unusual. The play I saw was OK and I enjoyed my pint(s)
