Our pubs

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

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.

The Lion in Earls Colne high street is a beautiful Tudor era pub.

The latest addition is The Three Horseshoes purchased in 2017.
