Currently in its eighth year (2 years, 9 months & 15 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
(akin to Platform 9¾ at King's Cross Station, The Bake is somewhat hidden - here, unlike the Platform, being in a hidden passageway, between The Carlton Cinema & Coral's Bookmakers) Although the Bake has been here for several years, many who live in Westgate still don't know where it is!
