GREENE King has had to reverse its 6p pint deal after getting into hot water with the Licensing Act meaning the pub chain is now offering FREE PINTS to customers today. 

In celebration of the Queen's 70 years on the throne, the pub chain was selling pints for a bargain 6p - the same cost of a pint during the Queen’s 1952 coronation.

However, due to issues with charging 6p for a pint under licensing laws, Greene King has decided to now offer punters free pints across its 400 pubs nationwide today, Monday, May 30.

But to get a free bev, punters will have to use the secret code word.

Pubgoers will need to say "1952" when ordering a pint at the bar to take advantage of the deal at Greene King and Flaming Grill pubs. 

A Greene King spokesperson said: “Our pub and brewery teams are so excited to be celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with a variety of events this week.

"One of the ideas we had was for a promotion in 400 of our managed pubs where customers could buy one pint each of Greene King IPA for 6p today – the same price it was in 1952. We thought this was a great way to celebrate this remarkable occasion and we’ve been thrilled at the response from customers.

"However, we have some good news for everyone, which is that we will now be giving the Jubilee first pint of Greene King IPA away free of charge today, as we now understand it’s not permissible under the licensing act to charge the 6p.

"Just remember to use the keyword ‘1952’ and check whether your local pub is running the offer plus further details at

"Cheers everyone.”

The deal is only available today, Monday 30 May, so you'll have to head down to your nearest pub today.
