Currently in its eighth year (1087 days since John Morphy took over as Landlord), this
micropub is located in the main shopping area of Westgate,
close to both Town Centre Bus Stops and the Railway Station
(The Bake and Alehouse is somewhat hidden, being in a 'secret' passage, between The Carlton Cinema & Coral's Bookmakers) Although the Bake has been here for a number of years, many Westgate residents still haven't heard of it and don't know where it is!
The Bake & Alehouse offers a selection of alcoholic beverages. What's on offer varies, but usually includes:
A selection generally between five and eight, of different Real Ales -
To date, the Bake & Alehouse has had over 726 different
Ales available (or on the stillage, waiting to be served), from over 147 different breweries On the 713 where we have recorded the strength, this has varied from 2.90% to 7.00%
A selection of Ciders - both Apple & other fruit (such as Mango & Rhubarb)
Red, White & Rosé wines
Gin - with Fever Tree, or Schweppes, tonic
Other alcoholic beverages (some seasonal, some one-off)
Non-alcoholic drinks, such as
Tea, Coffee, Coke, Lemonade and 'J2O' - not forgetting FREE Squash for the Children
On top of
these drinks and a glorious choice of food (Kettle Crisps, Peanuts, Cheese, Hand Raised Pork Pies, & other pub snacks), there is also a range of Books (many CAMRA, but not all), a newspaper, a local area notice board, a few pub-games and, perhaps most importantly, some Dog Treats.
