Currently in its eighth year (2 years, 6 months & 14 days since John Morphy took over as Landlord), this
Micro-pub is located in the main shopping area of Westgate,
close to both Town Centre Bus Stops and the Railway Station
(just like Platform 9¾ at King's Cross Station, The Bake can be hard to find - here, unlike Hogwarts, being in a discrete passageway, between The Carlton Cinema & Coral's Bookmakers) Although the Bake has been here for many years, there are many who live in Westgate still don't know about it!
The Bake and 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 696 different
ales available (or on the stillage, waiting to be served), from over 141 different breweries For the 683 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, Lemonade (Still AND Cloudy), Coke and 'J2O' - not forgetting FREE Squash for the Children
On top of
these drinks and a glorious choice of food (Pork Scratchings, Peanuts, Cheese, Kettle Crisps, & other pub snacks), there is also a newspaper, a local area notice board, a range of Books (many CAMRA, but not all), a few pub-games and, perhaps most importantly, some Dog Treats.
