We loved the venue from when we first saw it and our guests are still talking about what a brilliant venue it is. We loved the different areas and the casual but formal feel. It fitted us and what we wanted perfectly! We're so glad the weather was kind to us and we were able to get married outside, and enjoy the garden for so much of the day. The set up in The Barn was exactly as we (eventually) imagined. Della was so patient while we decided on this!
The food was vitally important to us and they delivered exceptionally well. They listened and adjusted to all our requests - the pinchos were delicious, the pork and crackling melted in the mouth, the salads were exactly what we wanted and the cheese went down a storm both on Saturday and for many days afterwards. The Signature Drinks proved very popular so thank you also to Darren for taking the time to get the Caipirihna's right!
We are so glad that we chose The Plough and Barn, thank you for making our day so special!
The most magical venue
Our wedding made very special by a brilliant team
Building up to the day, Della and Becky just made it easy. They knew exactly what they were doing and made us feel very calm.
On the day, Della, Becky and their team were amazing. Every guest without exception commented on the quality of the customer service.
Fabulous wedding made very special by a passionate, hard-working, funny and efficient team of real professionals. Thank you all for a dream wedding.
Couldn’t fault! Amazing from the beginning to the very end
The perfect day! Stunning venue and amazing team
I was looking for a rustic but elegant barn vibe and from the beginning, the team understood my vision and helped bring it all to life. I even had some odd requests (as my husband is Guatemalan so we wanted to bring his culture into the day) and the team exceeded all expectations, our guests were blown away.
The food at The Plough is also exceptional, all of our guests commented how fantastic it was (nothing like your usual, often dry wedding food!), we had the slow-cooked beef for mains and it was mouth-watering.
On the day, the whole Plough team were outstanding, they were friendly and warm and so efficient. I couldn't believe how quickly they set up the room!
I cannot recommend The Plough enough, you will be in such trusted hands and you know your day will run smoothly and beautifully.
Thank you team Plough!

We have had countless compliments from our guests on the venue and also on the food. We went for the hog roast… it was fantastic!

💕Our perfect magical day 💕
Our perfect wedding day
Unflappable consummate professionals
Our amazing wedding
Truly amazing and such lovely staff 😊
When we first came to visit The Plough, Alex had found it on Google and we weren’t too sure what to expect. But when we saw the pub with all the hops and the barn we knew straight away we wanted our reception there. It is just so beautiful and was perfect. On our wedding day, you set up the barn just the way we imagined and it looked amazing, we were so happy when we first saw it. Seeing all our hard work come together in your beautiful barn.
Our guests kept telling us how lovely The Plough looked and how friendly you all were. We can’t wait to see the professional photos of our decorations in the barn. Our guests especially loved the food, so many people said the portobellos mushrooms were delicious. We had vegans and people with allergies and you helped cater to them and they all enjoyed their meals very much. The party was so much fun and our friends loved talking to you at the bar.
The day was amazing, thank you so much for making it so special. We are so glad we chose The Plough at Leigh for our reception and we’ll definitely be visiting again.
Super organised place, we had a brilliant wedding reception!
We had various issues with other establishments but as soon as we met with the team at the Plough and Barn at Leigh, we knew we were in good hands.
They were quick to answer any questions we had, as well as helping guide us through the running order of the reception. On the day everything was super organised, with no issues at all in getting things setup.
The venue itself was stunning, both the barn and the outside garden which thankfully we had good weather for. Everyone who attended had a great time and commented on how lovely the venue was.
After the stress of dealing with other venues before, me and my wife couldn't be happier of how this ended up. We will definitely be back for food and drink in future!
Brilliant service, beautiful venue
