Built For Comfort


Live Performance
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.

Venue Type


The Plough Profile Pic


The Plough Inn has seen more than its fair share of change over the years, with it now being one of Swindon's most contemporary & popular bars, back where it belongs as a real Old Town favourite.

The best guest ales & ciders on tap plus regular favorites

Real ale, cider, perry or lager - the choice is yours at The Plough Inn.

But although our ales and ciders are always changing you've find the quality is never less than perfect.

So good in fact, we thought our customers would like to see how we keep it, which is why we installed a 'window' into our cellar in the main bar floor during our recent transformation of the pub. Look down and you'll see we don't compromise on keeping our ales in the perfect conditions for serving and supping.

- 6 hand-pulled ciders always on tap
- top quality choice of cask real ales from local breweries and farther afield
- lagers and international bottled beers
