Was at an event with 200 people in the function room upstairs. We were wined and dined by a great crew of staff. What a setting, fantastic. You can go upstairs to a viewing area that looks down on the function area. Brill!

Love Play, Pie and pint at the Oran Mor, great concept, always well attended. But there is something which spoils the experience for me. And that's the seemingly permitted practice of allowing patrons to reserve all the best seats at the front by leaving a...More

For the play and a pint there is seating.For the gigs there is very limited seating at the sides. Be aware these seats don't always have a good view. If a gig is seated it will say so on the website before you book.
