With the nation set to spend £8bn on Black Friday bargains today the pub trade is trying to get a slice of the action.

Brewer Greene King is running promotions in 1,500 pubs, including buy one get one free meal deals that had been promoted on email to subscribers.

There will also be 10 per cent discounts to loyalty card holders and drinks deals in selected pubs.

Greene King commercial officer Phil Thomas said: "Black Friday continues to grow in popularity with customers, and has emerged as a key trading event not just for the retail sector, but increasingly for the hospitality sector too."

BrewDog is also offering bargains to customers with discounts of 20 per cent and more at its online shop. Further discounts are available to Equity for Punk investors.
