Licensee gives away free pints to attract locals back to pub

Thomas Buxton, who took over freehold pub the Hop & Berry in Islington, north London, at the end of December, told the Publican’s Morning Advertiser the unusual move was worth it to encourage locals to visit the pub, despite costing him thousands of pounds. Customers can claim their free pint using their Crowdit app, which also allows Buxton to ensure drinkers aren’t receiving more than one free beer.
