Have been several times to a Play, a Pie and a Pint. The pantos are the best because they are extremely funny however not for children as there're quite a few swear words! I laughed non stop for the whole hour at Maw Goose. It's just so silly but great fun! You can have quiche or a pie and a... More

This was loads of fun. The play was in the basement with very rickety table and chairs. We got a pint, a quiche and a very good one man show for the price. It's a great thing to do that is a bit "different".

My wife and I went to see a play, a pie and a pint for the first time despite living in Glasgow all our lives. It was the Summer Panto and it was hilarious. Purely adult entertainment as the language was 'choice' at times! Dave Anderson and the rest of the cast were fabulous, and had the whole audience singing... More

We have been quite often to watch the plays and have usually found them funny and/or entertaining, usually local writers and actors and good quality. The pie and pint, or wine, are a nice light snack to go with the experience, not meant to be a full meal, vegetarian pie also available. A really characterful venue, only complaint these days...

We saw the Queen of Extraordinary People back in April. The play was hilarious and I was laughing my butt off the whole time. The seating wasn't terrible. The beer was good and the pie was amazing. I had minced meat and my friend had quiche. It was a very enjoyable experience.

What a great first day in Glasgow...we found this on-line and actually raced from the airport to make the performance...it was such a great experience!! The acting was wonderful and the food good enough...not a lot of choice or big servings but just fine for what you pay...would go all of time if we lived here!

Terrific venue. New and often innovative plays. Sterling performances. Indeed all you could hope for in urban theatre. Seating not so good but hey it's lunchtime theatre and the pies are so delicious.

A bit over-rated and over-priced for what it is. The food itself was fine though a bit fussy for my liking. Very small portions didn't help
