UK Pub Chain Is Selling 6p Pints Today

UK Pub Chain Is Selling 6p Pints Today

Today is the day you can step back in time to 1952 and get yourself a pint for the wonderfully low price of 6p.

As the Queen's Platinum Jubilee bank holiday fast approaches this week, one generous UK pub chain has decided to help punters celebrate by selling pints for the price they would have cost 70 years ago.

Anytime today (30 May) at a Greene King Local Pubs pub or restaurant, you can get yourself an ice-cold pint for just six pennies.

But you will need to use a secret code phrase as you order, which is simply '1952', and the cheapest pint you're ever likely to drink will be poured right in front of your eyes.

Sadly, this 6p pint is only a one time deal as the offer is only on today and it's limited to just one pint per person, otherwise the UK might have run out of beer by tomorrow morning and then there'd be nothing to drink for the actual Jubilee weekend.

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.

"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."

The Queen's Platinum Jubilee will mark 70 years since Queen Elizabeth II took the throne all the way back in 1952, a time when pints really did cost 6p, Winston Churchill was prime minister and 'Here In My Heart' by Al Martino was the number one hit song.

Much has changed in the world since she was crowned, especially the price of a pint, but punters can step back in time for the briefest of moments.

Celebrations for the Queen's Jubilee will kick off on 2 June with the Trooping of the Colour, followed by a service at St Paul's Cathedral on 3 June and a concert at Buckingham Palace on 4 June.

Thousands of street parties celebrating the monarch and her reign are also due to take place across the bank holiday weekend.

There will be 408 pubs across the UK taking part in today's promotion, you can check where your nearest Greene King pub is here.
