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.
Always enjoy going there, food is fabulous, always superb service, you're not rushed so a relaxing experience.
I wonderful Christmas meal enjoyed by a party of 17 with lovely service.
Great for a pre show mesl
Food was amazing as always,i know it was busy but service a little slow Wont stop me coming again tho
The booking was very good, service prompt, food was excellent and really good value for money. All the staff were polite, friendly and very efficient. 10/10 and will definitely visit again..
Lovely evening, little quiet therefore not lots of atmosphere but enjoyable all the same. Slightly expensive for few nibbles xx
bit draughty in this weather if sat near door
2nd time visiting for our Christmas meal and 2nd time our meals was not right.. bringing beef burger out to vegetarian and side order wasnt right. Gluten free order was also wrong on both times of visiting We will not be returning . My order was pre ordered by email and was still managed to get messed up.
We had a fabulous time and the food was delicious. Top quality brasserie!
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.
Excellent in every way
First time we've been. Very pleased. Great food, good menu. Very efficient service. What more is there to be said. 😀
Our first dining experience with you and certainly not our last. From the welcoming arrival, the lovely staff, the great atmosphere, the gorgeous food and the relaxing feel, our friends and I had the perfect time. Thank you .
Prompt service. Prefer different cocktails that are on the list but i managed.
Friendly place,very busy and a bit noisy.
i booked for 19:30 and have a copy of the comfirmation email. but on arrival iwas told my reservation was for 21:00 luckley they a table at 19:30
I rang to say we were running late and the staff were very helpful, assuring me that they would hold our table.
A pleasant all round experience as usual
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?
Lovely dining experience, would definitely recommend
Excellent as ever
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.
