About Automatic

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.

Booking online was very easy and we were able to book a table for the number of people and the time we wanted. There are a good selection of starters and mains we can’t comment on the desserts as were well satisfied with our meal.

On booking stressed one person on GF diet. Pleased that when showed to table a GF menu already waiting. Enjoyed the Steak Night offer. Asked to see the dessert menu but only regular menu brought to us. Thought waitress would have remembered I was on GF diet. Also don't like to see staff on setting tables bringing cutlery in hands. I always thought that it should be brought to table on a plate or similar. Just lacking attention to detail.

Staff were good. We again had issues with the separate bar between the restaurant and the theatre though. Staff in there seem to be unhappy.

First time visit to Bury and booked The Automatic as we were attending the Richard Hawley concert. Arrived to find gluten free menu ready for me on the table which was an indication of their level of customer service. Friendly staff, very good food. A lovely venue.

Always receive excellent service from friendly, informative staff who are happy to tweak our order with no hesitation (for the fussy ones amongst us!) Only downside, although clean, the toilets could do with a refresh.

Service was impeccable, so welcoming and attentive!! The ladies that served us were lovely. The decor is also fab. The only thing I’d change is the detailing on the menu, I ordered a halloumi burger and it came smothered in pesto, which was not stated on the menu. Luckily, I like pesto however I wanted halloumi and could not taste it as it was overpowered.
