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 my Mum’s surprise present for my Friends & I to watch John Farnworth’s Magic Event at Bury Met followed be a meal at Automatic for my 18th Birthday. We all enjoyed the evening from start to finish.
Lovely family atmosphere great food would definitely recommend
This is the 4th or 5th year in a row that we’ve booked for automatic! We always have a great time and the foods always great, however... this year, it felt a little bit ‘rushed’. We’d only just sat down when our starters arrived (we hadn’t even ordered a drink) and the rarebit tarts were very overdone! They’d been ‘kept warm’ for far too long. The main and dessert were excellent but right at the end, it’s was disappointing that our coffee and mince pies didn’t arrive. We had to ask for them... other than that, a really great night and we’ll definitely be back, but please don’t lose that ‘nice tough’ that automatic always has, just to try and fit more people in. I know it’s a very busy time for you and your staff did an amazing job but the food, speed of food arriving and attention to detail was definitely off piste this year. Thanks again,
have been coming to automatic for years and have never been disappointed.
a 5 if only the 2nd bottle of pinot had not been lukewarm,
Excellent service, lovely food, great value
Becausecof all the hard surfaces the noise levels are very high when it's busy and people have to shout at each other to be heard. Its a shame as its very good in other ways and the staff are excellent.
Great start to a fab evening at the Met. I had the fried chicken, lovely, but would have improved with a salad or corn or a veg.
Did think the menus is not as good as previous ones.
Pleasant place for a pre theatre meal
Everyone commented on how good the Christmas meal was. It was plentiful and the service was great.
Excellent experience thanks to the staff and kitchen/chef
Food delicious, staff friendly, customer service excellent. Will definitely be back.
Could have done with an additional table added on as there were 19 of us in our group and we were a bit squashed in. Staff are lovely and very efficient. Plenty of food choice and well prepared.
Table for four was ready on time and the whole evening was a pleasure. Great cocktails and food was all superb. We always enjoy a visit to Automatic, whether just for a drink or a meal it's fantastic.
Pleasant surroundings , ideal if attending a concert at the Met
Fried chicken was tasty but fries were cold. Could do with a bit of salad or coleslaw to liven up the dish, spring onions are a bit of a waste as it is largely finger food.
Fantastic as always! Still one of my favioutes in Bury!!
Amazing food and great waiting on staff. Only negative is sat along the back wall you were quite close to tables next to you
Fabulous place to eat. We're never disappointed, the welcome is always genuine, service is wonderful and the food is always delicious.
We like Automatic butvitvis exceedingly noisy. Please consider using more fabric in the bar and eating areas to absorb sound and turning down the mudic volume so its just background. Conversations get louder and louder as people try to talk over others and the loud music doesn't help. The hard surfaces everywhere only increase the volume by bouncing it around.
What a little gem this restaurant is...great staff, excellent atmosphere and to top that superb food... I would recommend to everyone. Been twice now in 2 weeks...and will be booking again for next week...online ..
Great staff-nothing too much trouble! Food delicious & fab presentation. What a fab place!
Love this restaurant. There is a good choice for vegetarians and the food is delicious. The range of drinks is extensive and includes cocktails, gins and real ale. The service is friendly and efficient.
