    The most perfect day

    If you’re considering The Plough as a potential venue for your wedding then I advise you to book it. We got married on the 25th September 2021 after postponing for a year due to COVID and the whole process was smooth and easy. Hazel and her team are so professional at what they do and make your wedding feel so unique and special.
    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!
    Thank you to the Plough for making our day so special, I just wish we could do it all again !

    💕Our perfect magical day 💕

    We just got married here and I can’t recommend it enough. Great location, an absolutely beautiful barn inside (there natural look of the barn was just gorgeous there wasn’t need yo go over the top with decorations, just minimal ones to compliment it and outside in the garden area, was great so much space, there was no child left running riot because their time was filled with so many activities due to the amount of space,plenty of parking, beautiful view. It was my dream venue and I’m in love with it. the manager, and her team were amazing and was so helpful the entire way through. They also work with a lot of great vendors that they recommend to you. We had previously had to postpone due to covid but it was defiantly worth the wait and whole experience of getting married, and it was something everybody enjoyed. Especially after all the lockdown and emotions and craziness we was al so greatful that it was finally able to ahead and happen. The day was the best day of our life 💕💕 truely perfect!!

    Thank you dear Natalie and Jason for such a lovely review of your long awaited wedding!
    Such a beautiful day and well worth the year's wait after rescheduling from the summer of 2020. If you have any photos of your amazing VW camper poses do share them, they were wonderful to witness!
    Take care of each other and enjoy married life x

    Our perfect wedding day

    What can i say we finally had our dream wedding at The Plough and Barn on the 8th July. This was our 3rd date due to Covid and Hazel calmly professionally helped us reschedule with excellent communication. The day could not have been any better we where looked after so well by all off the team especially Becky from start to finish. They accommodated every request and i just got to relax on the day knowing it was all taken care of. We where so lucky to get married outside in the beautiful gazebo, have a lovely day outside in the sunshine playing garden games. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and the food and drink was amazing and plentiful. Thanks again Mr & Mrs Oliver

    Unflappable consummate professionals

    The Plough were incredible from start to finish. Originally booked out wedding in 2020 but had to be postponed due to covid. We rescheduled for a year later and they were so accommodating and flexible. Hazel, Della, Mick and the team made our day just magical and were just a pleasure to liaise with. Covid made me incredibly anxious but after every meeting they made me feel so much better about getting married with them. Can't fault them.

    The Plough and Barn at Leigh's reply:

    Good morning Kirstie and James and thank you so much for taking time in your newly married life to share your wedding day experience with us all.
    We are delighted to have provided you with the magical day you had dreamt and planned for and were thrilled to finally see you both say your I do's in our country garden amongst your family and friends despite the long wait!
    We wish you an amazing life together and look forward to catching up with you, if you decide to join us for an anniversary trip down memory lane, or indeed when you call into the pub for a drink.
    Best wishes from us all at The Plough at Leigh.

    Our amazing wedding

    We finally had our wedding day at the Plough on 22/10/21, after several postponements due to COVID. Hazel was on hand throughout all the years of planning to answer any questions and was incredibly supportive and flexible when we needed to postpone. Nothing was too much and Hazel always got back to us promptly. Della, Becky & the team were also amazing in the lead up to and on the day. I had such a relaxing day because I trusted the team so much. Staff on the day were fab. The food was seriously good - we had so many compliments on the food. Delicious and hot. The barn is so welcoming and the pub warm and cosy, it was just the perfect venue for us. Would defo recommend to anyone looking for a barn venue in Kent. Thank you again to the team and we look forward to visiting the pub again soon!

    The Plough and Barn at Leigh's reply:

    Dear Charlotte and Matt,
    Thank you!
    It has been a delight to have met you both and very special to have seen you both finally have the wedding day of your dreams, putting all the turbulence of the previous rescheduling aside.
    The day was certainly worth the wait, with the blue skies, sun shining and seeing all your family and friends celebrating with you.
    Enjoy married life and we'll look forward to welcoming you back whenever you would like to visit.

    The best day

    We had the most incredible wedding day in August 2021 at the Plough in Leigh after rearranging three times.
    The venue were incredible throughout- Hazel and Delma were completely understanding each time we needed to move the wedding due to the pandemic.
    As the big day approached they were always available and flexible in order to meet our needs.
    On our special day we were lucky with the weather and had an incredible outdoor ceremony in the sunshine. The gardens seem to always look amazing whatever the time of year, and made the best back drop for our photos. The service was second to none all day- the team could not have been more attentive. The food was spot on and we still receive lots of compliments about it from guests now. Our evening buffet was designed by us, all made on site, they allowed us to stray from the set menu and have Cornish pasties and scones with jam in the evening. Cannot recommend this venue enough, it was just perfect.

    Best Day Ever!

    We had the best day from beginning to end. The staff were fantastic and the food was amazing. We had a fully vegan and gluten free wedding and they catered for us perfectly. The venue itself was beautiful inside and out.
    Hazel and Della were so helpful from the start right through to the day. We couldn't have asked for anything more would recommend this venue to anyone.

    The Plough and Barn at Leigh's reply:

    Congratulations on your marriage Rebecca and Luke! We hope you are enjoying married life and thank you for taking the time to leave us such a glowing review of your wedding day.
    We are thrilled that after waiting a year to your new rescheduled date we were able to provide your long awaited dream.
    We really enjoyed creating the menu for you and were thrilled that even the meat eaters amongst your guest's enjoyed it!
    On behalf of all our amazing team, Della and myself, thank you for choosing our gorgeous venue for your wedding day.

    Maria and Andy

    We had our wedding reception at The Plough on Friday following a church ceremony. It truly was a brilliant day and everything about The Plough was perfect. The lovely traditional pub, the gorgeous barn, the beautiful gardens, the amazing food- everything was perfect and all our guests commented on how beautiful a venue it is and how great the food was. From our first meeting with Hazel to all our meetings and interactions with Della, nothing was too much trouble from dietary requirements, to our setting up 150 bottles of flowers, to allowing our crazy spaniel to attend! And all at an incredibly reasonable price. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Plough- the perfect venue for a country wedding.
    Thanks again, Maria and Andy x

    The Plough and Barn at Leigh's reply:

    Dear Maria and Andy,

    A huge thank you for sharing your wedding experience with this amazing review. We were delighted to host your special day and thrilled that we were able to deliver your dream country wedding!
    Best wishes to you both from me, Della and the whole team on your exciting journey together.
    PS your flowers were magical:)

    Perfect country wedding venue

    We got married at the end of June and had a wonderful wedding reception at The Plough.
    Hazel, Della, Louise, Luc and the team went above and beyond both during the preparation stages and on the day itself to ensure that the day ran smoothly. The barn was beautiful and everyone enjoyed the large garden on a very hot day! A number of guests commented on the quick wedding breakfast service and the delicious food- Baileys ice cream need I say more?! They also catered really well for the various special dietary requirements and for the children. We can't recommend this wedding venue highly enough and are so grateful to the team there for helping us to have such a special wedding reception, exactly as we had hoped for.

    The Plough and Barn at Leigh's reply:

    Dear Emma and Rich,

    Welcome back from your Honey Moon. We hope it was as magical as your wedding day itself. Thank you so much for your glowing review and praise which shall be passed to the whole team.
    It is lovely to hear your wedding day was so special and you and your guests made a day to remember with a little help from The Plough:)
    We'll hope to be able to welcome you back again soon to enjoy the pub in the future.
    With all best wishes!

    Andy & Pam's Wedding Day

    We got married at The Plough & Barn two days ago and we are still buzzing from what a perfect day it was! The venue is stunning - the pub itself is a beautiful traditional country pub but the Barn just takes your breath away... This was the first and only venue we looked at! After meeting Hazel, Della and Luc for the first time we knew we were in the best of hands...nothing was too much trouble and no tiny detail was overlooked. The food is fabulous, perfectly cooked by Martin and his team and beautifully presented. Our evening buffet was equally fabulous and we had lots of very happy guests! For the rest of the team who were on their feet for hours, nothing was too much trouble... Do not hesitate to book your wedding here - for us it really was the best day ever!

    The Plough and Barn at Leigh's reply:

    Dear Pam and Andy,

    Thank you, on behalf of all the team.

    Congratulations to you both on your marriage and your fantastically enjoyable wedding day, for the team as well as for you and your guests!!

    We are delighted to have been part of your incredibly special wedding day and for the team to know their hard work in realising your every wish has been appreciated.

    We shall indeed look forward to welcoming you back as soon as your trip down memory lane calls.

    With all best wishes to you both x

    Best day of our lives

    The Plough and Barn was the perfect venue for our wedding. Hazel, Della, Louise and the rest of the team couldn’t have been more friendly or done a better job in helping us organise the day and making sure everything ran smoothly.

    The Plough is in a lovely location and the barn looked beautiful with the fairy lights, hops and other decorations. Although the weather was a bit chilly, the garden still made a beautiful setting for photos, and our Morris dancers!

    All our guests really enjoyed and commented on the food – there was a wide range of menu options to choose from beforehand, the portions were generous, and everything tasted great. The team took especial trouble to make sure we were happy with our choices and that people with specific dietary requirements were individually catered for without making them feel 'second best.'

    We’d definitely recommend that anyone planning their wedding at the moment (or any other special event) goes to visit The Plough – as soon we’d seen it, we knew it was going to be the right place for us, and we couldn’t have chosen better. The day was happy and relaxed, just as we wanted it to be. We and our guests had a wonderful time and we want to thank everyone there for helping to give us the best day of our lives.

    The Plough and Barn at Leigh's reply:

    Dear Caroline and Vernon,

    It is lovely to hear from you and we hope you have enjoyed your first summer together as husband and wife since your spring wedding.
    Thank you all your praise - that and seeing all your smiles of joy on the day makes our job an absolute pleasure:)
    We shall look forward to greeting you both back as soon as and whenever you would like to take that trip down memory lane.
    With all best wishes to you both!

    Our Daughters Wedding

    The Plough and Barn at Leigh was the venue for Natalie and Daniel’s wedding. We were drawn to the pure charm and magic of the place and how we were made to feel so welcome by the owner and her staff. Nothing was too much trouble and they helped at every point in achieving that special day. On arrival I could not have wished for more. It was stunning and a day I will never forget. The staff were brilliant, the regular DJ was amazing and ensured everyone had fun. I could not recommend this venue more. You will definitely achieve the magic wanted on your wedding day. Thank you so much to you all. Brilliant xxxx
