Here at The Met, we’re on the lookout for a new catering partner to look after our restaurant and downstairs bar. This partner will deliver an exciting restaurant and bar space that compliments our cultural offer and provides a unique hotspot for the people of Bury.

The restaurant has a main space (with a bar) and a pre bar space which connects to the main Met building. The whole area holds around 90 covers, not including the space outside. It includes a kitchen, office, toilets, a walk in freezer and a dry store outside. There is catering equipment within the building which is ready to use.

The Met is keen to work in full partnership to bring something to Bury audiences that will compliment our core mission and values. We are keen to use local producers and brewers to boost our local economy and support local independent businesses.

If you believe you could bring a unique culinary flare to the space, and are keen to work with an award winning cultural institution in the heart of Bury, the please review the invitation to tender document below and get in touch.

We’re also hosting an open day on Friday 8th September from 11am – 3pm. Appointments are by prior arrangement only. If you would like to book to come and see the space, please contact Victoria Robinson at
