We know it’s hard to be away from friends and family at the moment, and we’re all feeling a little disconnected from our community. To help encourage socialisation, tackle loneliness and hopefully offer a bit of entertainment too, we’ve launched The Lock Inn, Greene King’s virtual pub.

The pub is officially open and we invite you to pop-in any time you like by visiting the Greene King Brewery Facebook page

All our events and activities are free of charge. Our only ask is that if you’ve enjoyed yourself and been entertained, that you make a donation (whatever you can afford) to our charity partner, Macmillan Cancer Support. Macmillan nurses, like all carers, have continued to work and care for high risk patients during this crisis, and we’d like to use our virtual pub as an opportunity to raise essential funds and support for the charity. Click here to donate.




We’ve got a range of events planned over the coming weeks, and we’ll be adding more as we go, so keep checking back to see what’s on.




Let’s Get Social

If you get involved in any of our events, we’d love to hear what you think, grab a snap of you playing along with a pint in hand and send to Facebook  (Greene King Brewery Facebook page), Twitter @GreeneKing or Instagram @GreeneKingBrewery



We know that staying at home with limited contact can have a significant impact on our mental well-being - and in particular, feelings of loneliness.That's why we're opening our #GKCommunityCorner

To start a conversation with us, just send us a DM on Facebook or Twitter using #GKCommunityCorner and we'll be in touch.
