Our pubs

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

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 & hand-picked wines by the Bar Manager, Gilly Ryan.

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