PUB chain and brewer Greene King toasted record festive sales figures, helped by takings of more than £3m on Christmas Day.

The group, which has brands including Hungry Horse pubs in Havant and Hilsea and Gunwharf Quays’ Loch Fyne Seafood & Grill, said sales at its managed pub estate were up 6.3 per cent on a year ago during the two key weeks of the festive period.
