Where to get a free pint in the Black Country today as Greene King celebrates Jubilee

Pub retailer Greene King is offering customers who enter their pubs today Monday a free pint.


The popular pub chain is giving away a Greene King IPA for nothing to help celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee to anyone who uses the secret code '1952' at the bar.

Greene King was initially offering pints for 6p - the price they cost in 1952 when Elizabeth II ascended to the throne - but was told it could not offer pints at that price.

Andrew Gallagher, marketing director at Greene King Local Pubs, 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.”

“Wee looking forward to celebrating the Platinum Jubilee in all our pubs across the bank holiday weekend.”

Pubs across the country are involved in the offer, including some in the Black Country.
