FORGET Apple Pay tomorrow. One Bournemouth pub is celebrating Halloween by giving away free drinks in exchange for a more unusual currency – pumpkins.

The Broadway Greene King pub on Castle Lane West is offering a free drink to any locals who visit on October 31.

Abbey Baker, general manager at The Broadway said: “We know everyone loves a freebie and what better way to celebrate Halloween than to treat, not trick, our customers with our pumpkin pay offer. We look forward to welcoming locals in Bournemouth to the pub this week for a fright-fully good drink, on the house!”

To launch pumpkin pay, Greene King has commissioned a unique food portrait – dozens of pumpkins featuring Boris Johnson’s face.

The bizarre installation took a team of skilled pumpkin carvers over six days to create, with each of the seasonal vegetables expertly carved to mimic the famed politician’s trademark mop hair and cheesy grin.

Pumpkin pay at the Broadway, is just one of thousands of Halloween events taking place in over 1,700 Greene King pubs across the country.

Other local pubs taking part in the pumpkin pay promotion include Brunswick, Churchill, Cow, Cranleigh, Jolly Sailor, Red Lion, Richmond Arms, Spyglass & Kettle, Westbourne.

A range of drinks including hand-selected wines, cask ales, craft beers and soft drinks will be available. Redemption is limited to one drink per person.
