Simply Magical
Venue Service

By Catherine and Nathan, on 16 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 22 Dec 2017

We got married at the Plough at Christmas and it was simply magical. We chose to hire the entire pub and barn. This turned out to be a great choice, as we could use the pub itself for canapes beforehand and also as an escape from the dance floor later in the evening. We even did the speeches from behind the bar, lending the occasion a fun and informal atmosphere. The barn itself is beautiful, and we comfortably sat down to a wedding breakfast of just under one hundred guests. Once dinner was over, the staff quickly turned it around so that the party could begin. With a live band and one hundred plus revellers dancing away, the atmosphere was absolutely amazing. We would like to thank all of the staff at the Plough, but three in particular. Enormous thanks to Hazel who supported us throughout the planning process from start to finish; to Della who managed the set up and ran everything smoothly on the night and to the chef Luk, the food served was simply amazing. Everyone was full of praise for the quality and quantity of food. We simply could not have improved our wedding in any way, and that is down in a large part to the hard work of the team here! If you are looking to get married and want an amazing location with amazing staff, then look no further than the Plough at Leigh!

Amazing from start to finish
Venue Service

By Leanne and Adam, on 16 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Dec 2017

5 stars Just isnt enough! As soon as we visited we knew it was where we wanted to get married. Hazel and Della were amazing from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble, even providing a different dish, off menu, for a guest with specific dietary requirements. Luk the chef and his te create such lovely dishes that is was hard to pick! The beef we chose was the best we’ve ever eaten, and lots of our guests loved it too. The staff were all lovely. The turnaround in between the ceremony, meal and disco was so quick! We really can’t thank you enough or recommend you enough to others. A lot of our guests will be back I’m sure! Thank you again. The knights

Highly Recommend
Venue Service

By Kiri and Will, on 16 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Dec 2017

If you would like a wedding with excellent service and a lovely venue the plough is for you.My daughter Kiri and her now husband Will had their wedding at the plough and they couldn’t have asked for a better venue.The day before when we were setting up the staff couldn’t have been more helpful and gave you confidence that the great day would be in good hands. After they were married we had drinks in the pub and the atmosphere and service was very good We then went into the barn which looked amazing and welcoming.The food was very good and the service excellent considering the numbers catered for.I felt we did not have to worry about anything which is what you need on your wedding day.The tables were also set up in a good way they made you feel everyone was a part of the wedding. As the meal and finished the tables were soon set up for the evening.I would also recommend the dj as he was excellent and played music that kept everyone dancing all night . We came back the next day expecting to have to help to clear up but everthing was done for us . We couldn’t be happier and would highly recommend.

A brilliant venue for your wedding
Venue Service

By Kiri, on 30 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 08 Dec 2017

We had our wedding here and it was nothing short of exceptional. Hazel, Della and the staff were fantastic from start to finish. They were so helpful and supportive and really put us at ease. The service on the day was flawless, all our guests had great things to say about the staff. On top of the staff being brilliant, the barn is absolutely stunning and it was the perfect setting for our winter wonderland wedding. The food was so tasty and the portions were very generous which was important to us. All our guests were raving about how tasty the food was. The barn is very atmospheric and the dj Gary kept everyone on the dance floor all night long. I’ll always have such fond memories of this special place and can’t wait to go back for dinners to relive the best day of our lives. Seriously if you are considering the Plough I’d recommend going for it, you’ll get a personal, professional service and a charming, beautiful venue to for your big day. Thanks so much to everyone at The Plough from our wedding guests and family. Kiri and Will.

By Nicola and Sean, on 16 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Sep 2017

Me and Sean would like to say a massive thank you to Hazel, Louise, Gary and all the staff at The Plough. Hazel not only have you been an absolute star to work with since we booked you for our wedding but throughout the whole time of planning you have been so kind, accommodating, professional and just overall amazing to us both! I'd also like to say a special thank you to your staff for having to deal with my young niece who had been sick during the reception. I think a combination of excitement from the day and eating anything and everything had gotten the best of her! Me and Sean honesty cannot praise everyone at The Plough enough! Our day came together beautifully and without a hitch and the barn looked so amazing with all the decorations. I've been receiving so many comments from guests and suppliers about how wonderful it all looked. Everything surpassed my expectations and you made a special day even more incredible. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

We really had a brilliant day at the plough on Saturday for our wedding, Hazel and the whole team have been amazing from booking 18 months ago through until the day making it stress free and exciting. The team were great looking after us on the day, food was just amazing and everything ran smoothly. The day was perfect and we wouldn't change a single thing. Absolutely beautiful place and cannot wait to go back and visit.

By Anthea Perry, on 13 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 05 Aug 2017

This beautiful 16th/17th Century barn and pub create the perfect environment for a truly wonderful occasion. My son and daughter-in-law had the most amazing wedding there a month ago. We were able to reserve the use of the whole place (pub and Barn) even though it was a Saturday. Hazel and her excellent team were very professional yet so friendly, helpful and caring throughout all the planning stages. They catered for all our needs and the food was excellent with great service and attention to detail . The Plough welcomes children of all ages who can enjoy playing in the lovely grounds. We had over 100 guests (including 10 children) and can strongly recommend the Plough for that perfect wedding to be enjoyed immensely by all.

Hazel, Director at The Plough and Barn at Leigh responded to this review on 14/09/2017 15:34:04

We are all so pleased that we helped to make Nicole and Nick's wedding day special, in what we do agree, is a rather special venue! The team shall look forward to greeting you again soon for more of the same with a seasonal pub lunch, drink - maybe even around the open fire this winter or the next special occassion.

Best Day Ever!
Venue Service

By Natasha Camenzuli, on 29 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2017

We got married on Friday 2nd June 2017 and it was truly FANTASTIC! From the beginning Hazel was very helpful and massively flexible. A lot of venues are very rigid on what you can and can't do, what you must eat, how the day must run however Hazel was open and game to all our ideas and agreed to many things that she could and quite rightly have said no to however she didn't and rose to the challenge. I am an event planner myself so I wasn't the easiest of customers and was very particular and although over the 18 months of planning there was occasionally some friction, overall Hazel was very helpful, accommodating, massively flexible, replied to emails on time and most importantly had our best interests at heart which was very clear and we are very grateful for. The barn is stunning, the garden amazing and the food, outstanding! We had beautifully made canapés, followed by a fresh homemade afternoon tea and then marvelous burgers and chips in the evening. The day went amazingly well and Della had full control of things and was wonderfully flexible which was so incredibly helpful as we were running behind but she didn't mind at all. We had loads of decoration and Della and her team decorated absolutely stunningly and we LOVED IT! It was beautiful! We are so grateful to Hazel, Della, the chefs, bar staff and waiting team. They understood what we wanted and completely delivered it! We loved every second and will forever remember our perfect day at the lovely, quirky, rustic Plough. I entirely recommend having your wedding here, and that's coming from the biggest fuss pot in town! They have a wonderful genuine care and desire to understand what you want and get it right.

Hazel, Director at The Plough and Barn at Leigh responded to this review on 30/06/2017 10:09:41

Dear Mr and Mrs Camenzuli, Thank you so much for your heartfelt glowing review of your wedding! It was an incredibly wonderful day and we are so pleased that your fun loving, warm and generous family and friends enjoyed both our and indeed all your effort on the day. Please don't be stangers - we'll look forward to welcoming you back for a trip down memory lane - you will indeed never be forgotten:) x

The best day of our lives!
Venue Service

By Liz and Will, on 16 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 27 May 2017

Hazel, Luke, and the team were simply amazing. They were really excited by all the ideas we had especially about our vegetarian menu based on our favorite past times as a couple which are picnics and afternoon tea. Our food was simply amazing which was one of the main reasons we wanted to book the venue. Having never organised a wedding before myself it sometimes got a bit overwhelming but Hazel was brilliant, she talked us through step by step and it was such a relief to be able to email her and ask questions and receive a quick reply. Hazel and her team perfectly realised the day we had envisaged and as someone who finds it hard to delegate and a bit of a control freak I was finding it difficult to accept that I wouldn't be able to get there in the morning of the wedding and set everything up exactly as I wanted it (This was mostly for my own sanity). I didn't need to worry however as the unshakable Della had listened to my ideas and followed out my instruction exactly how I wanted them adding a bit of extra flair to boot. I don't think I could have done it better myself. The venue on the day was so beautiful and Hazel Della, Luke and Mic who take so much pride in their work, really, really cared about us having the best day of our lives. And needless to say it really was the best day of our lives! We are really grateful for all their hard work and the attentiveness we felt from them made us feel really special. Thanks again Hazel and the team for all your help. Liz and Will xxx

My beautiful wife and I got married at the Plough earlier this year and all we can say is THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. Hazel and the whole wedding team were absolutely fantastic, from our first meeting through to the end of the big day itself, they held our hands and guided us every step of the way. If it wasn't for these guys our day would not have been anywhere near as special as it was and it will truly be a day Katie and I will never forget. The venue is stunning and perfect for a wedding and the team set it up exactly as we wanted it on the day. They ran everything so smoothly and seamlessly that we had no hiccups at all. The food was perfect and all our guests commented on how good the food was, they all thought it cost a lot more than it did and nobody was left feeling hungry.

Perfect venue for our Bonfire Night wedding!
Venue Service

By Cat and Alex Phipps, on 29 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 05 Nov 2016

The Plough at Leigh was the perfect venue for our Bonfire Night wedding. The barn is stunning and there was plenty of room for our family and friends to join our celebration. It transitioned perfectly for the ceremony, reception and dance floor party! Having the pub and barn together meant that we also didn't need to worry at all about the weather and the cosy log fire and wood burners added to the warm atmosphere throughout. Hazel and her team are absolutely wonderful and put everything into our day to make it really special and run so smoothly. All our guests loved the food - it is delicious! We can't recommend the Plough highly enough.
