We had a lovely evening, the takeaway desserts and cocktails where a bonus! I have only given 4* for atmosphere due to COVID restrictions but we genuinely had a fabulous time. Thank you

Thank goodness you’re staying open. Excellent as ever - my steak was cooked to perfection. The Porter was good too - please continue to have it on draught. Shame you’d run out of the cheese board but hey, c’est la vie. Thoroughly recommended

Been coming here for years and years, always good food, friendly staff and chilled atmosphere. On an October Friday afternoon it was a little quiet, layout now different to allow for social distancing, but apart from that it was same as ever. Hope they manage to survive through the current restrictions as they have always been our favourite in Bury.

We shared a lovely meal for my birthday with my family. The food and drinks were delicious, we especially loved the choice of the 2 for £10 cocktails. The atmosphere was calm and relaxed and the staff were very friendly, polite and attentive. Will definitely be returning soon!

The measures in place for Covid 19, social distancing, hand hygiene and staff wearing visors was very good. The food was excellent, the Greek pizza was amazing. Staff were friendly, service was very good.

Good service. Safe and socially distanced in view of current situation. I did like the layout of the area - might be worth keeping it like that when we get back to "normal". Well Done!

The music was quite loud and it felt more like a bar than a restaurant. Fair enough it was a Saturday night but the music could have been a little lower. The menu has simplified and the dishes are creative. But the cost of the dishes is alot if you dont end up liking what you've ordered. Mainly pizzas and burgers with a handful of creative mains and a choice of gammon or steak from the grill. Plenty for vegetarian and vegans with plant based and healthier options. We had the classic burger for the main and it was a decent size burger but it was a tad disappointing and could have done with some coleslaw on the side instead you have to pay £3 or £4 for it as a side. The starters thankfully were amazing. The garlic bread with mozzarella and tomatoes on cibata was so light yet cheesey. And the szechuan beef tacos were delicious. I would definitely recommend these, there is also szechaun beef main which is what ill probably order next time. We will return as we enjoy the variety of cocktails available and the 2 for £10 deal.

Upon arriving at the restaurant we were allocated a table which was well observed with the social guidelines. Ordered food and drinks, was informed that some drinks weren't available due to the current situation of whether they had to close or not which was explained very well. The food was very nice, atmosphere chilled with some good music, not too loud. Will definitely return at some point in the not to distance future.

We were really impressed with the steps taken to make the restaurant suitable for social distancing, it was very reassuring. Delicious choices for vegans made this a great evening.

Great food once again, 4th visit since you reopened, we feel safe. Would love you to add a few more cocktails to the 2 for £10, maybe a pornstar martini? Thanks once again 🙂

SORT THE APP OUT!!! We were a party of 3 and each used the app - to take advantage of the £5 discount which was the reason our visit was so disastrous. The food came at different times so we were not able to eat together One of us had starters and mains arrive together I had to chase my order 3 times before anyone checked and found that hat I wasn’t getting it because my starter had been refunded via the app without making me aware. By this time the two other people in the party had nearly finished eating. I was told I could order a different starter it would take another 10mins - but by this time, I just wanted some food so just asked for my mains - the evening was spoiled already and I didn’t enjoy what food I had or the evening. Service was good - waitresses worked hard all evening. It was an expensive and disastrous evening. Nando’s has a similar app based ordering service which works - I actually wish we had gone to Nando’s. This app needs sorting out - I won’t use it again. I will visit Automatic again - but not use the app I would recommend Automatic to others - but not the app
