UK pub chain to offer pints for just 6p in Queen Jubilee deal TODAY – but there's a catch

Greene King will serve the cheap pints at 408 of its sites on Monday to kickstart Jubilee week. The pints will be priced at 6p as that was the same price they cost at the Queen’s coronation back in 1952.

However, those wanting to take advantage of the special offer will need to use a secret codeword.

In order to secure one of the low-cost pints, punters visiting one of the Greene King Local Pub or Flaming Grill sites should head to the bar and say 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 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.

“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 deal will last only one day and customers will only be able to claim one 6p pint of the Greene King IPA in each pub.

It comes after opening hours for pubs and bars were extended across England and Wales over the Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend.

Over the four-day weekend, from Thursday, June 2 to Saturday, June 4, opening hours will be changed from 11pm to 1am.

Meanwhile, Boris Johnson is expected to announce the return of imperial measurements to mark the occasion.

Meanwhile, ministers are also planning to restore the crown symbol on pint glasses after EU rules required the use of an EU-wide “CE” mark on the glasses.

The Government’s proposal will review the advantages of reintroducing imperial measurements for both customers and businesses.

There are understood to be a number of possible options but it is unlikely that metric measurements will the scrapped completely, according to a Government source.

The decision is more likely to see traders making their own choice on whether they wish to sell goods in pounds and ounces, similar to how pubs sell pints of beer.
