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.

A must, fantastic venue, Performance and it does what it says on the tin. Great afternoon. Will be back, and will recommend it to others. Thanks.

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)

If visiting Glasgow would highly recommend Oran Mor, its a converted old church and is lovely for an afternoon drink and food. A group of us booked the play and a pint, you can get a choice of drink and a pie meat or vegetarian options both we're yum. I cannot say enough for the one hour play, it had... More

Our two day visit to Glasgow and a friend who lives here recommended for us to visit this quirky renovated old Church that is now a theatre and a bar. the pie was great, the pint was great, but unfortunately the 4 short uncut plays were a little close to the bone, in fact they were on the verge of...

What a great concept. We found out about this place on tripadvisor and thought it worth a visit. We happened to visit on a Wednesday which is the cheapest day and found ourselves enjoying a drink, a pie and the entertainment of the play. When we went there were actually four short plays, two of them great, the other two... More

Long may Oran Mor continue to host their winter and summer pantos, these highlights of the year (and a true blast from the past) are difficult to get tickets for but well worth the effort. The only downside is the ridiculously long queue you have to suffer as the seats are unallocated but once in, seated and enjoying the quiche... More

So impressed with this place! Like another reviewer here I saw "The Bridge" by Donna Franceschild which featured Eilidh McCormick and Iain Robertson. A gripping piece of drama superbly acted. Hankies at the ready, folks! Looks like there's lots more coming up too, including a Christmas panto. What a great idea as well. Something completely different to do at lunchtime,... More
