The offer from Greene King is in place for one day only, and allows pub goers to pick up a pint for free.

How can I claim a pint?

To claim a pint, visit a Greene King pub and say the secret code of ‘1952’ behind the bar.

Why was the offer changed from six pence pints?

he pub chain was to offer pints for six pence the UK, choosing this amount because this was the average price of a pint in 1952 - the year Queen Elizabeth II ascended to the throne.

Yet issues with charging this amount under licensing laws made the chain change the offer to free pints instead.

This is a one time offer, so be sure to be quick and not to miss out!
