Consistent standard of food and drinks over many years of visits. Staff pleasant and helpful, great table service. Some interior changes lately looking good. Always top of the list when choosing places to eat in Bury.

As good as usual. Even the temporary menu was more extensive than I was expecting. A pleasant 2 hours pre-show meal. My guests will certainly be revisiting the Met now!

This was my second visit to Automatic, but the first time was a bit better than this time. We ordered drinks and food, all of the drinks were fine. My partner ordered the fried chicken, with no issues. I ordered the Classic beef burger, with cheese and everything apart from the lettuce removed. You can have bacon with it, but they didn't ask if I wanted it so I left it. My food can, but it tasted weird, very bacon'y, but no bacon was on it, I still don't know why it tasted like that. The sweet potato fries were amazing as usual. The only major negative issue with the night was the amount of flies in the bathroom. 10+ dead in the toilet cubicle on the floor and on the top behind the toilet, some were even flying around still. Thanks! :D

My wife and I went to the automatic in Bury before a show. Whilst the atmosphere was OK, very noisy and busy. We ordered our meal and when it arrived mine had insects crawling on it . I brought it to the attention of the staff immediately and they were very apologetic and replaced it. However I had to wait 10 -15 minutes. My wife finished her meal before me. Not a pleasant experience. I felt like calling environmentall health. What's crawling in your meal?

I only gave 3 stars for service as we had to wait so long for our cocktails, we ordered an other round straight away so we weren't sat without a drink. Your restaurant wasn't even busy.
