When does the free offer start?

The offer is available for one day only on Monday 30 May 2022.

Customers will only be able to a maximum of one pint per person at the heavily discounted price.

Why is Greene King running the offer?

The company is running the offer to commemorate the Queen’s upcoming Platinum Jubilee, in which the Queen will celebrate 70 years on the throne.

The company originally came up with the concept of 6p pints as it was the average cost of a pint during the year of the Queen’s coronation in 1952. However, due to a licensing issue the pints are now free!

Marketing Director of Greene King Local Pubs spoke on the exciting offer, and said:

“The platinum jubilee is a fantastic way for the UK to come together and celebrate our Queen and country, so we wanted to take our customers back to where it all began – 1952, a time when Vera Lynn ruled the charts and pints were only 6p

“Some of our regulars may even remember watching the coronation back in 1952, although they may have been too young to enjoy a pint then.

“We can’t wait to see our customers enjoy this royally good deal on Monday 30 May, and look forward to celebrating the platinum jubilee in all our pubs across the bank holiday weekend.”

How do I order the free pint?

To claim on the offer customers will have to use a secret code word when ordering.

The secret code word is ‘1952’.

1952 is the year the queen took to the throne and began her record-breaking reign.
