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.
I really like coming to the automatic I enjoy the atmosphere and the staff are lovely and very helpful, usually the food unfortunately on my last visit I found my food wasn’t as good as usual, I ordered fish and chips the chips were very chunky and because of this they were very dry and the fish was heavily battered and so it was quite tasteless
Great service served quickly and felt looked after. Happy smiling staff, always makes a difference to service and they were all lovely. Good menu selection. I had Lancashire hot pot and it was really tasty. Empty plates all round.
Small dishes and main courses are excellent. Deserts are too expensive and not that good. Atmosphere is super relaxed and friendly. Staff were friendly and efficient. Well worth a visit.
Excellent meal and service. Great choice of drinks. Highly recommend.
We were shown to our table and then left. No-one Dame yo serve but the table next to us, who arrived 10 minutes after us, were served immediately. Had we not asked I can’t hazard a guess how long we would have been waiting. Someone didn’t communicate properly. But these things happen. Still a good evening though and still thoroughly recommended
Love this place, perfect before a gig at the Met. Had to wait a long time for food this visit as very busy but still worth it.
Great sirloin steak.
Great food and staff really helpful
Brilliant as always
Lovely place to catch up with friends whilst enjoying good food.
Fabulous meal as always for my daughter’s 11th birthday. Thank you for making it special for her.
Great people and food, one of my favourite places to eat in Bury for sure
Visit regularly. Great chilled atmosphere. Food is always good and service great.
Came for Thursday night pre theatre dinner @£11.95 but told not now available. I tried to explain it was shown on web site but again told I was wrong.It was still shown on web site until Saturday morning but page has since been updated. So I must have been correct. Was hoping to have the Sunday steak meal on 2 Feb prior to Richard Hawley but that looks although not now available.
Thank you for a lovey evening for friends to catch up Food was lovey, cocktails were great. Atmosphere was perfect for our occasion
Lovely venue for Saturday night drinks and a meal with girlfriends. Equally great during the day with husband and kids. Food and service are always great!
Unfortunately I didn’t enjoy the pizza but that’s personal taste! Staff were very friendly and were on hand when needed and quite rightly priced. Will come again.
Nice, cosy, convenient location
Excellent warm welcome, good food, great service and very good value.
