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

First time visitor. Just seen the Bridge written by Donna Franceschild. Amazing how much so much drama can be packed into such a short space of time. Beautifully played by Eilidh McCormick and Iain Robertson, I wouldn't dream of visiting Glasgow in future without returning here. Play starts at 1pm but if like me you turn up ticketless, I recommend... More

A Play a Pie and a Pint is a great idea but be warned - while the pie was very tasty and the drink (in my case lemonade) refreshing, unfortunately, the play is the wild card. 'Truly awful' is the polite way to sum up the nonsense on the stage on Nov 6th. Perhaps it is my age,or the fact... More

This is a really good thing to do while in town. Starts at 1pm, but get there early for you seat and importantly your pie and pint (or glass of wine). The play is under an hour and the one we saw was really, really good. We paid £12.50 each on a Friday lunchtime - great value for money. A... More

P,P and a P is an Oran Mor lunchtime staple. Play was 'Flying with Swans' which was beautifully moving. I would recommend P,P&P to anyone with an hour to spare in Glasgow

Spent Friday afternoon watching "Crash" which was excellent and thought provoking. As a local I've been to Oran Mor many times and this old church is very atmospheric inside. Lovely huge bar as you go in, then downstairs into the venue. Scotch pie was good and washed down with a beer. Tremendous value for money and I will definitely be... More
