My husband and I have always wanted to go to Oran Mors' A play, a Pie and a Pint, but we've never made the time to go along until our niece and her boyfriend came for a visit from Australia. They wanted to do something Scottish so we jumped at the chance to go along to the iconic Oran Mor... More

This was a great, cheap thing to do whilst we were in Glasgow. The building was amazing! The vegetarian option is a quiche thing - we were a bit worried about this at first but it was super tasty! I like lager so was a bit disappointed by only being able to choose Fosters (blergh) but settled for a Guinness.... More

Loved this! Located in the beautiful Oran Mor, we did not know what to expect but for a tenner was worth a punt. LOVED! Yummy scotch pie, a pint, and a ridiculously funny and racy play. The plays change each week, and get there as soon as the doors open to ensure a good seat as it fills up and... More

"A Play a Pie and a Pint". It delivers exactly what it says. A drink, some lunch and a play delivered in an intimate, but non intimidating environment. And all at a very reasonable price.

This was a great play and a pint. Enjoyed the old church setting and the food was good. The play was funny, but I think I missed a lot of the jokes not being Scottish.

Yet again, the Christmas panto at Oran Mor has exceeded expectations. Great atmosphere, great fun, topical and, at times, a bit thought provoking, but that's what you expect when Dave Anderson is involved. We left happily exhausted, a thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours. Husbands enjoyed their pie and pint, we girls had a West end fusion - pie and red... More

We found this venue by chance on TripAdvisor and wanted to experience something different so we gave it a go. I imagine the success of the experience is partly down to chance as the play changes regularly but we struck lucky with "Happy Hour". I am glad however we did not take the kids as the language was frequently VERY... More

This was an excellent play. Thought provoking and brilliantly written. The cast were top class. Had us, and many around us in tears as it was so personal. Well done.

a play, a pie and a pint and that's exactly what you get! There is a soft drink option and vegetarians can get quiche instead of a scotch pie. Fantastic idea and great value its usually £10-15 depending on which day you choose. Theatre at lunchtime is a brilliant idea and I've yet to see a play I didn't like.... More
