Greene King pubs are offering pints of India Pale Ale (IPA) for just sixpence today only as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. The choice of 6p a pint has been chosen as, according to Greene King, that was the average cost of a pint in 1952 when the Queen was crowned.

Anyone visiting a Greene King pub or Flaming Grill site today will be able to buy a pint of Greene King’s IPA by 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 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.”

The offer is valid today only — 30th May 2022.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

    6p a pint? Still not worth it.
