Have been to PPP before, but always wanted to attend the Panto. I'd heard great things, and indeed , all were true. All our group loved the script, banter , acting, satire. I really don't want to tell everyone how great it was! ( because we want to get tickets next year !)

This play concerns a mother and her two daughters sitting up all night with their dead father in a coffin. Unfortunately Barbara Rafferty had taken unwell but fortunately Director Jimmy Chisholm stepped in to play the Barbara's part as the mother and he was excellent. For such a sombre subject at times it was hilarious with the "women" sitting up... More

Never been to a Play a Pie and a Pint, before. Nor had my friend. Very enjoyable experience! No idea how many were there but certainly looked like a full house. Pie was fabulous, long time since I have tasted one of that calibre. Excellent play, provided by the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh. Dr Johnson goes to Scotland! Plenty of history... More

Bought 2 tickets @ £14 to see PPP last Saturday with my husband. Some lunchtime contemporary theatre held in the basement of the former Kelvinside Parish Church at the top of Byres Road,now known as Oran Mor. We booked for the Letter adapted by Stuart Paterson from a short story by Anton Chekhov. We arrived at 12.30pm and collected a... More

A great way to spend a couple of hours....actors are very accomplished and food is okay! You don't have much selection for a drink....but the entertainment is certainly worth a visit. You may also get to know your neighbors at it is group seating!

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.
