Beautiful venue
Venue Service

By Laura and Oliver, on 29 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Mar 2018

We recently had our wedding at the Plough and we are so pleased we chose it. The venue itself is beautiful, from the cosy pub to the gorgeous barn. It's so striking and already comes with fairy lights so we didn't really need to think about too much extra decor. From start to finish, Hazel and the team were quick to respond to our (many!) questions and were always friendly and helpful. All of our guests said what a beautiful venue it was, how lovely the food was and how nice the staff were. Thank you again Hazel and team!

Thank you dear Laura and Oli for taking the time and sharing your wedding day experiences with such a lovely review. It was a pleasure to host such a warm loving celebration on a chilly March day, although the sprinkling of snow gave a really romantic element to the occasion! All your comments and thanks will be passed to the team and thank you for letting us all be part of your amazing day.

We are so happy we chose The Plough
Venue Service

By David and George Winter, on 29 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 20 Jan 2018

We are so happy that we chose The Plough for our wedding day. Hazel helped us plan the day from start to finish, often thinking of things we hadn’t! She always made time for us to pop over and discuss things and was always prompt in responding to our countless emails. Nearer the time, we met Della, the events manager, whose attention to detail helped ensure that everything went according to plan. Among many other details, Della and her team made our table decorations look just as we had asked and we couldn’t be happier with the result. Shortly after booking, my partner turned vegan, and The Plough put together a vegan alternative wedding breakfast menu! Both menus were delicious and received high praise from our guests. Compliments to the chef and their team!! The venue itself is picturesque and stunning. The open fire and log burners gave the place a really cosy, wintery feel - just what we were looking for. The team were so friendly and helpful to us and our guests. We can’t recommend The Plough enough. Our thanks to Hazel, Della and the rest of the team. Fantastic work!

Simply magical
Venue Service

By Catharine and Nathan, on 29 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 25 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.

Incredible
Venue Service

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!

THE IDEAL WEDDING VENUE
Venue Service

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

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experiences with such a glowing review. 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.
