Platinum Jubilee: Pub chain to offer pints for 6p as part of Queen’s celebrations | UK News

The Greene King chain of pubs will be offering pints for just 6p to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Those wishing to enjoy an incredibly cheap pint of Greene King IPA on Monday May 30 will need to use a secret password.

The pub chain will offer the 6 pints at 408 of its sites, as that was the average cost of a pint when the Queen ascended the throne in 1952.

Anyone visiting any of the Greene King Local Pub or Flaming Grill sites will be able to claim the offer using the password “1952”.

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 our country, so we wanted to bring our customers back to where it all began – 1952, a time when Vera Lynn ruled the charts and pints were just 6p.

“We can’t wait to see our customers take advantage of this royally advantageous offer on Monday 30 May, and we look forward to celebrating the Platinum Jubilee in all of our pubs throughout the bank holiday weekend.”

It comes after the opening hours of pubs and bars have been extended across England and Wales over the four public holidays marking the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

From Thursday June 2 to Saturday June 4, the opening hours will be extended from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Traders are currently required by law to use metric measurements such as grams, kilograms, milliliters and liters when selling packaged or bulk goods in England, Scotland and Wales.

Under the metric system, 1000 grams equals one kilogram, but under the imperial system there are 14 pounds in a stone and 16 ounces in a pound.

For liquids, there are 20 fluid ounces in a pint and 160 fluid ounces in a gallon, instead of the 1,000 metric milliliters for a liter.
