Currently in its eighth year (3 years, 11 months & 2 days since John Morphy took over as Landlord), this
Micropub is located in the main shopping area of Westgate,
very near to both Town Centre Bus Stops and the Railway Station
(The Bake & Alehouse can be hard to find, being located in a hidden alleyway, 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!
The Bake & Alehouse offers a selection of alcoholic beverages. What's on offer varies, but usually includes:
A selection, generally between 5 and 8, of different Real Ales -
To date, the Bake & Alehouse has had over 773 different

this range of tipples and a glorious choice of food (Peanuts, Kettle Crisps, Cheese, Pork Scratchings, & 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.
