Automatic is an independent restaurant and café bar situated next door to The Met Theatre, Bury.
The perfect place to meet friends, eat great food, drink great coffee, do business, enjoy a cocktail or few, or a pint of real ale.
Try our 'Malt' bar too; with an extensive menu of over 100 whiskies and right next to The Met it's a great spot for a pre-or-post-gig tipple or two.
At certain times we can get very busy. For pre-theatre dining, if possible, please allow yourself two hours to dine with us.
This online reservation system will only allow you to make reservations for a maximum of 6 persons. Please call us (0161 763 9399) if you would like to make a reservation greater than this. Our MAXIMUM party size for the restaurant is strictly 20 persons.
amazing lunch with fast service. will be returning
Booking online was very easy and we were able to book a table for the number of people and the time we wanted. There are a good selection of starters and mains we can’t comment on the desserts as were well satisfied with our meal.
Dropped in for a pre theatre meal, excellent service, food was very good, the waitress was lovely and pleasant. The atmosphere was also nice. Busy but you did not feel hurried. Will definitely return in the future .
Excellent service from people who know how to run a restaurant.
good food great atmosphere
Excellent service great food and drink in a perfect location for visiting The Met
Lovely food and our little waitress was so lovely, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble
On booking stressed one person on GF diet. Pleased that when showed to table a GF menu already waiting. Enjoyed the Steak Night offer. Asked to see the dessert menu but only regular menu brought to us. Thought waitress would have remembered I was on GF diet. Also don't like to see staff on setting tables bringing cutlery in hands. I always thought that it should be brought to table on a plate or similar. Just lacking attention to detail.
Staff were good. We again had issues with the separate bar between the restaurant and the theatre though. Staff in there seem to be unhappy.
Food and service up to the usual high standards. It’s always a pleasure to dine at Automatic
Excellent as usual
Great atmosphere, lovely staff. Food - clean plates ! Good value Pre gig meal so very convenient too 👍
First time visit to Bury and booked The Automatic as we were attending the Richard Hawley concert. Arrived to find gluten free menu ready for me on the table which was an indication of their level of customer service. Friendly staff, very good food. A lovely venue.
Good food and service
Always receive excellent service from friendly, informative staff who are happy to tweak our order with no hesitation (for the fussy ones amongst us!) Only downside, although clean, the toilets could do with a refresh.
Always a delight to eat at Automatic. Haven't normally eaten there during the lunch break, service was great.
Very pleasing restaurant, friendly and efficient staff, nothing is too much trouble. Excellent menu selection and value for money. Very pleasant busy atmosphere.
We had a fabulous night. Thank you.
Enjoyed a really lovely pre show meal.
Service was impeccable, so welcoming and attentive!! The ladies that served us were lovely. The decor is also fab. The only thing I’d change is the detailing on the menu, I ordered a halloumi burger and it came smothered in pesto, which was not stated on the menu. Luckily, I like pesto however I wanted halloumi and could not taste it as it was overpowered.
We always eat at the Automatic when we attend a show at The Met and are never disappointed. The staff, food and service are always excellent. Thank you.
Great food easy to book a table everything went very smoothly
Always a great experience,great food, service and atmosphere.
Food excellent as always and staff were very attentive
