Our pubs

The Saint Arnold Group of pubs is made up of The Lion in Earls Colne, The Griffin in Halstead and the Five Bells in Colne Engaine.

Owners Darran & Caroline Lingley bought the Five Bells in 2002 & worked extremely hard to build a wonderful Community pub with an outstanding team & reputation. Darran was awarded BII Licensee of the Year in 2011 and the Five Bells has won many other awards over the years.

In 2012 both the Griffin & Lion were purchased and in turn this created the Saint Arnold Pub Group.

The Griffin is a fantastic pub in the heart of Halstead town, proudly offering an eclectic selection of Real Ales & handpicked wines by the Manager Gilly Ryan. We also offer light bites to enjoy with your friends and family!

The Lion in Earls Colne high street is a beautiful Tudor era pub which has just undergone extensive building work. We are now fully open for business.
