Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Keg and Comfort

Housed in a former bank (recalled by the snug being named 'The Bank Vault'), this one is verging on being a mini-pub, but the furniture, decor and atmosphere are all micro-pub despite its larger size. The counter is also long enough to accommodate three members of staff and six handpumps, featuring the Pitchfork Hewish Ruby mild (£3.10) and other real ales from Burton Bridge, Mad Dog and Fownes plus a couple of draught ciders. Overall, well worth making a trip out to those one (but not on Mondays to Wednesdays when closed).

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Keg & Comfort

A truly excellent micropub this one, where a lot of thought and planning has gone into the interior. We popped in here on a Sunday afternoon, where we met the owners, a husband and wife team, who were very friendly and welcoming. The main feature for me was the bar counter and bar front which was very striking. The bar area is situated along the rear wall and a lot of time has been spent in creating the bar counter, which has been made up from numerous pieces of 2" x 1" blocks, which have been glued together along the counter top and then numerous coats of varnish applied.
The bar front was like something from Tate Modern with 700 hundred coloured beer and cider bottles stacked on top of one another, glued together with mastic and illuminated with strip lighting from behind. Upturned barrels with bottle tops cemented in resin, were used as glass rests, a large funky wall clock made up from 12 positioned bottles around the clock perimeter helped you tell the time. Two separate loos with a hand painted silhouette of Clint Eastwood and Marilyn Monroe helped you find the right room.
Six handpumps with four ales and two ciders. We went for the Peakstones Rock Brewery Blonde, which was superb. There was also a choice of three ciders from the cellar and three different bottled ciders.

Soup Dragon left this review about The Keg & Comfort

Micropub housed in an austere 50s looking brick and glass former bank. The interior has a single room, with a small lounge housed within a room within (which had sofas). The main room is in a coffee colour with a wood floor and has the seemingly ubiquitous barrels. The rear serving bar does indeed utilise coloured bottles for effect. There is plenty of dog pictures on the walls - many it seems for sale. There is no TV or music. The do bar snacks. Service was very friendly and some maturer locals were in. There were four real ales on and a few ciders. I had an excellent Abbeydale Salvation Stout. An excellent place, and one I will return to when Mrs Soup is driving!
