In East Kent there are now four Micropubs, as the Bake & Alehouse opened in Westgate-on-Sea on Wednesday 27th April 2011. It's in St Mildreds Road, a small street alongside the cinema.

This is the brainchild of Pete Williams and Gwyneth Dear. True to the cause, it only sells cask ale, cider (from Broomfield Farm), and wine.

It is located next to an old bake house, hence the name, and it is intended to introduce a limited amount of food, including baked items.

When I visited, four beers and a cider were offered. There is no bar, as beers are served straight from the cask out of a cool room.
