Disregard the negative comments. This is a quality pub, full of character, and characters. There are one or two pretentious snobs, but on the whole - good! Been in here a few times .. I can't vouch for the food, but the beer is good (expensive). Most of the features, from it's former days as a church, still remain. Worth a look if you're in the area :)

Have been to 2 work's nights out in the Oran Mor Glasgow and will never go there again. 1st night, freezing in the conservatory, slow service then had to urgently stop at service on way home due to upset stomach! Put this down to bad luck and attended a retiral on Sat 29/01/2011. Seating plan did not suit the 40 people attending as we were spread around the room. Half the party were packed into a cramped corner away from the main table. Service very slow. When food eventually did arrive it was cold and the main course was very poor quality (never order the "beef stroganoff"). Person who was retiring will remember this night for all the wrong reasons.
Oran Mor is a beautiful converted church building at the top of Byres Road. The G3 Creative office is pretty close so we have been a good few times. Pie, Pint and Play is great value and don't be surprised if you see a few celebs such as David Hayman.
This is another rather homogeneous nightclub in Glasgow - this time in the Westend. It benefits from its location at the top of Byres Road and relatively civilised clientele. Interestingly it is situated within an old church, the basement of which is the nightclub and the public bar is within the main hall.
Music is very mainstream which can lead to lethargy and irritation.
Drinks are reasonably priced and there is a good selection.
In a nutshell, convenient, comfortable but commonplace.
was really disappointed with the oran mor. went for lunch-service shocking, food ok. we got the drinks half wat through the meal,the chips 15 minutes before the rest of the food and no-one working there seemed to have a clue what was going on.was thinking about there for holding our wedding,not any more
One of my favourites in the West End. The Oran Mor is friendly and I always find it easy to get a seat. The drinks are expensive but if I'm watching what I drink it's not a big deal. Good atmosphere and nice to visit on warm summer nights.

I have only been in the live music venue in the basement for gigs. The size is god but find it only really suited to acoustic music, as heavier guitar bands don’t work in here with the sound system.
The play, pie and a pint deal sounds great too and I hope to get along some day to this.
one of my favourite pubs for those nights when you have no fixed agenda, and simply want to frit away a few hours drinking with a friend. alas, i find i have to retreat when the live folk music rears it’s head.
the upstairs venue is perilous to get to (damn spiral staircases!), but it’s a fantastic space. was recently dragged to a muay thai boxing event there, a first for me. it has to be said, there are worse ways to spend an afternoon drinking and watching people beat the stuffing out of each other!
Saw my first gig here last night and was impressed. The venue’s a really good size and the sound was ideal. Plenty of seating as well as a good sized raised standing are in front of the bar. Bar prices are comparable with other such places (£3.40 for a pint of Sagres) and they seem to like to wrap things up pretty sharpish after the show which is no bad thing.

A great gig venue in the basement - great sound and acoustics and aesthetically pleasing stage. Tikcets can be a bit pricey for bands who play there - sometimes smaller bands can charge £15 - £20 whereas you may expect £10 or so if they played Tuts or ABC2. I suppose it depends on the promoter though.
The pub upstairs is OK, pretty satdard for the west end and Byres Road. There is a nice atmosphere when it is packed on a Friday or Saturday night. Not tried the food there, but have dined in the restaurant downstairs which was great - nice authentic Scottish feel about the place.
The club/gig venue area is brilliant for a small gig. I’ve seen a few bands there now, and the atmosphere it lends to the night is great. The bar upstairs is pretty good too, the outdoor terrace is always nice in the summer (right across from the Botanic Gardens). The food is lovely, and the private function area is gorgeous.
nice stunning building with 2 entrances, friendly staff have seen a gig here before was a very nice venue it is situated near hillheead tube station which is very hand for transport to and from the city centre, its mainly used as a pub/club though and its usually busy especially in the summer months when you can sit outside and drink a beer
This review relates to the main bar, I’ve not used the other parts of the building. Due to the shape of the bar and how busy it gets, you feel like you’re standing in a fast flowing corridor the whole night. The bar also feels a bit “rough” and not very well cared for - that might be harsh, but the place promises so much and then doesn’t really live up to the hype. There are many better bars in the area.
