Weyaye...Pukka was a must on County days lol!! Image Played a couple of gigs there as well when they were putting bands on. It was a grubby hole of a place but a nice place to go get some cheap drink and watch some decent live bands :) What has it turned into now? :? I can't think!

hiya well i thaught pukka was a dump but after working there 6 years you get used to it. it didnt shut because of no licence it shut because the company that bought it went bust. was a busy little bar for a weekend.

I LOVED Pukka. It was an excellent place to start off. Used to have the 50p shots of firewater! I think the Manager was called Emma, and I remember a Trish? working the bar? It was good!
