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.
This was our second visit to Automatic since they have re-opened after being closed for several months. A great effort has been put in to make everything Covid safe and make people feel at ease. They now have a condensed menu but there is still plenty to choose from. The food and cocktails are still of the same high standard they always have been. We are so happy to have our favourite restaurant back open and it was great to see all of the staff’s friendly faces. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who likes delicious food, fantastic cocktails and wonderful service. Well done to all the team and we’ll see you soon.
So glad automatic has reopened. Revamped menu with some favourites still on there. Pizzas are a new addition - didn't order one but plenty of people were & they looked lovely. Staff as friendly & helpful as ever. Covid cleanliness faultless.
The lady serving us was so lovely! She interacted with my children, very friendly and sang Happy Birthday to my husband. We had brunch and the food was 10/10, couldn’t fault a thing.
We had a nice lunch the staff was very good and pleasant and we felt safe will be going again we missed it when it was shut one of the places we like to go to.
Me and hubby had a lovely night. Very clean and felt safe X
We really enjoyed our lunch! The Florentine pizza is fantastic.
Nice to be back at Automatic 😎 food and drinks as good as always and covid-19 preoccupations first class.
Great food and service. Good COVID adaptations, felt safe without being restrictive. Value for money
The service is the best and so is the food. If you want a drink then it's fine. Enjoy x

Love the new layout and glad you are back. Sabina was an excellent, attentive and friendly server.
No problems at all, but you need to get some new chairs,or get new padding on them,they are hard to sit on.
Great food, as usual. Excellent cocktails. Friendly staff. So glad to see Automatic open again and maintaining their high standards.
Best place to have a casual meal in Bury. The prices reasonable, food good!
The new layout works really well and great to have the Automatic back with it’s buzz, good food and fantastic cocktails!
Food great, as alway. I do think you need to rethink your social distancing procedure. We sat not even a meter apart from a another couple, it was just like it was before COVID, if not busier.
Good food and service and atmosphere. Well spaced tables.
5 stars across the board - definitely recommended. Good food, drink and atmosphere. The staff are friendly, efficient and helpful
The new vegan crispy chicken is absolutely amazing!!! Xx
Automatic has always been a favourite of ours. We've been coming for many years. Food and service always good. We've missed you and are so pleased you are open again.
First time visiting the Automatic since reopening after lockdown. There was a hand sanitiser dispenser at the door and we was asked by a member of staff to hand sanitise before being seated. Track and trace system in place, tables well spaced out throughout the restaurant and staff were wearing visors. We was asked whether we wanted table service or to order through the phone app - nice to have an option. Felt very safe and comfortable during the evening. Will be returning again soon.
