Perfect country wedding venue
Venue Service

By Emma and Rich, on 20 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 29 Jun 2019

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.

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
Venue Service

By Andy & Pam Yates, on 02 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 31 May 2019

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!

Hazel Thornton, Director at The Plough and Barn at Leigh responded to this review on 03/06/2019 20:05:33

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

Our Daughters Wedding
Venue Service

By Wendy Wood, on 25 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 22 Mar 2019

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

November Wedding
Venue Service

By Natalie van Eck, on 16 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Nov 2018

The Plough Inn was a fantastic choice for our November wedding, we cannot thank all of the staff who made it such an incredible day. It was absolutely everything we could have hoped for, and the staff were just so great. We asked them to do some unusual decoration, and get involved in our treasure hunt on the day, and it all went down such a treat. Thank you so much again, for such a wonderful day, we appreciate all of your efforts and hard work to make it memorable. Thank you as well Hazel and Della for helping us figure out what we need to do when and how in the lead up to the day. And Louise for being so chilled and organised on the day itself. Thank you all!!

You cant find a better wedding venue!
Venue Service

By Sam Dewing, on 23 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Nov 2018

Our wedding was on 3rd November, and we just don’t have enough words to describe how magical it really was. From the start Hazel, Della and the team were amazing, every tiny detail thought through and every silly question from us answered without hesitation! We fell in love with the pub and barn from the moment we step foot inside, but it never really did prepare us for how absolutely stunning it was on the day, it all completely took our breath away, and every guest commented on what a lovely venue it was - and the food!! The food was a massive hit, portions were perfect and it tasted absolutely delicious. Thank you to the whole team for making our day exactly what it was, genuinely the best day of our lives. We are absolutely certain that we will be back to The Plough time and time again, it is a very special place to us now and feels like part of the family ??

Hazel Thornton, Director and owner at The Plough and Barn at Leigh responded to this review on 04/01/2019 12:54:54

Dear Sam and Tom, We are over the moon to hear how much you enjoyed your wedding day at The Plough. To be so appreciated is wonderful. Thank you! We do also agree with you when you say "you can't find a better wedding venue" and prove the point by holding our post wedding celebration at home at The Plough in February!! Your extended family awaits your next visit for your trip down memory lane. With all best wishes to you both x

Wedding Day!
Venue Service

By Leigh and Adam, on 02 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 22 Sep 2018

We got married last weekend at the Plough and are really pleased we chose it as our wedding venue! We had an amazing day, and the barn looked beautiful! Hazel, Louise and team did a fantastic job - we were so happy with how all of decorations and tables etc looked on the day and we had so many lovely comments from guests! Our wedding planning was made easy with Hazel always responding promptly to our questions, and Louise was on hand all through the wedding day and was so helpful! Unfortunately it rained throughout the day so we couldn't use the garden, which is beautiful, but being in the pub was great and had a real cosy feeling, we loved it! The food is delicious and staff very friendly! Thank you!

Hazel Baer, Director at The Plough and Barn at Leigh responded to this review on 02/10/2018 14:28:48

Good Afternoon Leigh and Adam, congratulations and thank you for both having put your trust in us to deliver your dream wedding day and for writing this glowing review. Have a wonderfully happy life together and we shall look forward to greeting you both again for a drink once you feel the need to revisit us. Best wishes, Hazel and all the team.

We got married here last week and we couldn’t have asked for a better venue. The barn itself is beautiful and Hazel, Della and her team made the planning and day run exceptionally smoothly. As the quaint pub has delicious food, we’ll definitely return for a trip down memory lane in the future.

Everything we hoped for & more
Venue Service

By Kate & Olly, on 31 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Jul 2018

We are so delighted we chose The Plough as the venue for our recent wedding. Hazel is brilliant at what she does & right from the very beginning we knew we were in safe hands. Hazel made the whole planning process incredibly easy for us and always answered our queries so promptly right up to our wedding day. On the day everything was perfect, the barn looked beautiful, the day ran smoothly (thanks to Hazel & Della and their wonderful team) & the food and service was spot on, meaning we could relax and enjoy our day. It was everything we hoped for and more.

Hazel Baer, Director at The Plough and Barn at Leigh responded to this review on 31/07/2018 19:39:25

A massive thank you to everyone at the Plough Inn for making my friends wedding day so perfect and stress free. The staff were so calm, friendly and helpful from set up on Thursday, to clear out Friday night. A stunning venue in a gorgeous location that I now couldn't recommend higher.

So I got married yesterday at the plough at Leigh! To say the day was perfect is an understatement and this is all down to the staff at the Plough! Our day went without a hitch and the whole time all staff making sure me and my husband were enjoying it and guiding us through! They let us have our day exactly how we wanted it!

Perfect Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Pauline & Kevin Meggs, on 04 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 25 May 2018

WOW what an amazing day! We couldn’t of wished for a better venue for our wedding day. Hazel helped us to plan our day from start to finish, and her professional attentive team made sure that everything went according to plan. The canapes, wedding breakfast and evening buffet were delicious and our guests were full of praise for the quality of the food. The venue itself is stunning, the barn is gorgeous and we were also able to enjoy the beautiful garden as the sun was shining. The whole day was perfect and I wouldn’t change a thing. If you are looking for a stunning wedding venue with amazing staff, then you should book the Plough at Leigh!
