Rhythm + Blues
Built For Comfort emerged from the ashes of Swindon based, The Hot Tamales in July 2002. Founder members Alec Adams and Bill Jones were joined by Phil Tait on drums, Chris Goddard on bass and John Ingleson on guitar.
Bill and Alec had met in the summer of 2000 when Alec was seeking harmonica lessons. Bill knew Chris from many years of playing together in The Vindaloo Brothers, Phil was a chance encounter from working with a TV leasing company and John answered a local advert by the boys for a guitarist. And then the story began. By the summer of 2004 the band had played over 65 gigs together, averaging about one a week.
Now, over a decade and hundreds of gigs later, Built For Comfort have turned into one of the tightest, rocking Rhythm and Blues outfits on the circuit today! The recent addition of Blues guitar maestro Michael King on guitar and Simon Needler on Hammond organ and piano have added a new dimension to the band. Little wonder they wow audiences wherever they play!
Built For Comfort have supported among others Wilco Johnson, Paul Lamb And The Kingsnakes and Ben Waters.
Tucked away behind what used to be the Swindon College, within yards of the new Regent Circus development.
We now serve up to six quality Real Ales and an exciting new range of Craft Beers. We even have a wine list too!
We have a very simple menu. There is a selection of Pies with mash and gravy. All meat pies are made by our local butcher and perfect with a pint!
We have maintained the character of the pub, but given it a new lease of life. We’re sure it’s a pub that is perfect for meeting friends, listening to music, grabbing a quick bite to eat or just stopping in for a pint on your way home! Also a great place for a beer before or after a visit to the new cinema.
