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.
Did not happen due to government advice
Very poor table service no personal interaction with the waitress’s. Everything seemed too much trouble. Very disappointing
Good food, good service as usual
It's been sometime since my wife and I dined at "Automatic". However this turned out to be an excellent pre-theatre dining experience and we will definitely return.
Had a lovely meal for my son’s birthday
Always love the food here, wonderful atmosphere, comfortable surroundings, staff are very friendly and efficient, special shout out to Siobhan who served us and was especially lively.
Fab food, lovely place.
Great all round experience
Nice chilled atmosphere, varied food menu for all at reasonable prices. Staff helpful too
1st time enjoyed meal and atmosphere will definitely come again
Great location and ambiance
Food always great. Atmosphere nice. Staff fabulous!!
It was a quiet afternoon when we visited, staff were sat scrolling on their phones at times. While the staff were serving us they were very pleasant though. I ordered a burger and asked if the rustic bun it came on was hard or soft, I was told it was soft, when it came it was rock hard so just had to leave it and ate the burger on its own! My mother ordered the fish and chips and she said the fish was lovely but the chips were so huge that they were hard in the middle so she just ate the smaller ones which were cooked through. We ordered 2 tiramisu desserts, these, unfortunately were absolutely tasteless, and the chunks of chocolate on the top left a very greasy, lard like feeling in your mouth.
I had the fried chicken and chips which were very nice but would have liked some coleslaw, but was not prepared to pay £2.95. I really don't think that is value for money.
As ever the service was efficient and friendly. We all enjoyed the food and cocktails. I wasn't happy with the menu choices, as a vegetarian, as they all appeared to geared towards vegans only.
Food and level of service was excellent. Friendly helpful staff that help make for a great evening on our wedding anniversary. We will certainly be back again.
The seating in the middle tables is a bit tight
Very friendly and attentive staff. Very good service even though there was a large group pf people dining in the restaurant after a funeral. Food great value for money. Will definitely be back.
Great night superb food and service
I would like to see more chicken dishes on main menu and variety of salsds eg chicken and bacon available. Jacket potatoes be good option and different types of ommlettes for a change. Food is fab though .
An unexpected quality restaurant, sorry, but we thought we were just having a bite to eat before the show at 20:00, but found a venue that had fantastic food, lovely staff and great service....my wife and I and our friend are already making plans to come back. What a gem of a venue, what a lovely surprise. Thank you.
The service was quite slow on the last visit but is usually efficient. As a vegetarian I was disappointed that most suitable meals were also vegan, both options should be offered. We all enjoyed the food, however, and the staff were as friendly and helpful as usual
I don't hand plaudits out without justification but this is the second time in a few weeks we have eaten with you and on both occasions it has warranted 5 Stars in all areas. The staff and service actually are probably worth at least 6.
Love visiting Automatic, the food, staff and service are always exemplary. Would recommend as the place to visit when on an evening out in Bury and you're planning to eat out.
