Like the place but the wait between starter and mains (30 - 40 minutes) is unacceptable.

Visit Automatic every Friday and on this occasion we had the rudest waitress, throwing a menu at us and generally being rude and aggressive. Won’t be returning.

Lovely food and a varied menu, all served in a timely manner for the show we were booked into. We would definitely come again when in Bury, even if not attending an event at the Met.

Another lovely meal at Automatic. My partner had The Classic Burger and I had Mac and cheese with short rib. The Mac and cheese was delicious and the short rib lovely and tender. The waitress kindly put it in a tray for me to take home when id had enough. A little loud due to being busy but not the restaurants fault. Been a few times now and always recommend it to people.

Every occasion we have been we have found the staff friendly and efficient. The food has always been tasty and good value. It's one of the reasons we like going to the Bury Met.

I love the place just wish you had some low hanging lights to enhance the ambience. Also the tables are too close sometimes and it's hard to have a private conversation without being overhead.

Very busy, so quite noisy but on a Saturday night - pre gig - it adds to the atmosphere. Would definitely return.

We received excellent service. The food was very good. The Restaurant is sometimes quite noisy but that's because it's a busy place. We love going to the Met and often book here before the show. Booking on line is very easy with an immediate response by e-mail.

Fine but for someone like me who wears a hearing aid, a little too noisy! Ceiling needs sound absorbing tiles - a common fault with many modern restaurants. Still an ideal venue before going to the Met.
