Automatic Café in Bury town centre is celebrating 10 years in business and held a 10th birthday party weekend (6-8 July) for customers and staff to celebrate its landmark birthday.
The restaurant was decked out with a giant glittery number ‘10’ centrepiece, balloons, and a specially commissioned cake by Marie Antoinette Cakes. Customers were treated to food and drink specials, face painting, birthday cake and live music by a new local female act ‘Serene Duo’.
As an independently owned business, Lee Hollinworth launched Automatic café and restaurant back in 2002 as a food and drink venue to compliment The Met theatre, having previously set up and operated Deluxe café within the Contact Theatre on Oxford Road, Manchester. Malt bar, a Real Ale and specialist whiskey bar, selling over 100 malts was added in 200 , creating a direct link to The Met theatre and offering Real ale and whiskey aficionados a place to hang out.
‘’We’re incredibly proud of all we have achieved over the last decade. We’ve survived major town centre re-development and have firmly established our reputation in Bury Town Centre as one of the best food and drink establishments in the area.
Automatic’s success is testament to the hard work and dedication from all the management and staff over the years and our amazing loyal customers .’ Said owner, Lee Hollinworth.
Now that Automatic is firmly established in Bury, owner Lee Hollinworth is ready to take on a new challenge and is well underway with the refurbishment of a 2nd venue in Bury town centre , The Clarence on Silver Street.
‘I want to bring something different to Bury and The Clarence will open in the new year as a pub with a quality food offering, with tea rooms above and a micro-brewery in the cellar . I’m looking forward to the next 10 years in Bury‘ Says Lee
