About Automatic

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.

Lovely restaurant With a great atmosphere, nice and busy giving the place a good buzz. Plenty of staff around ensuring the place is looking good and everything is running smoothly although they could be a little more attentive to tables (we had to ask someone to come over to take our food and drinks orders despite there being plenty of staff around). Menu offerings are standard but it’s good value for money and everything we had was very good. We will be back.

Not enough vegan options. The Starter and the main I had were excellent and could be vegan. However there were no vegan sides. I would have ordered fries either hand cut or skinny but neither were vegan. Surely one or the other could be.

Very difficult to book by phone due to high noise levels at your end. The web site only appears to offer the option to create an account at the end of booking; TBI.

Much Poorer than previous visits.. Four meals ordered, my meal came at least 5 mins after everyone else's.. Never had meals not served together in any restaurant before. Even the in the most busiest ones. Menus handed out to men first... Wife upset she seemed to be ignored. I had to give her menu as they were just laid on the table for them at the side of me and my mate. Not respectful and completely ignoring my wife... Wife commented "do I not exist" Bread and butter pudding was awfully dry texture was like it had be over heated in the microwave... Completely dried out... Won't have that again. Cocktail waitress tired to give us next tables drinks and a another waitress previous starters for other table. I gave a small token tip.. I normally tip at least a fiver and £10 when in your sister restaurant. The clarence because of what is normally an excellent service.
