Currently in its eighth year (1053 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' passageway, between Coral's Bookmakers & The Carlton Cinema) 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 on the whole of between 5 and 8, different Real Ales -
To date, the Bake & Alehouse has had over 720 different
ales available (or on the stillage, waiting to be served), from over 146 different breweries For the 707 where we have recorded the alcohol level, this has been from 2.90% to 7.00%
A selection of Ciders - both Apple & other fruit (such as Mango & Rhubarb)

Other alcoholic beverages (some seasonal, some one-off)

Coffee, Tea, Coke, Lemonade and 'J2O' - not forgetting FREE Squash for the Children
On top of
this great range of amazing drinks and a glorious selection of food (Cheese, Peanuts, Kettle Crisps, Hand Raised Pork Pies, & other pub snacks), there is also a local area notice board, a newspaper, a range of Books (many CAMRA, but not all), a few pub-games and, perhaps most importantly, some Dog Treats.
