Micro-pub 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 located in a discrete alley, between Coral's Bookmakers & The Carlton Cinema) Although the Bake has been here for several years, many who live in Westgate still don't know where it is!
