About The Plough Inn

Macclesfield Road, Congleton
Cheshire, CW12 2NH

Dating back to the 15th Century, former farm and coaching inn The Plough is the perfect place to host your country wedding. The gorgeous Oak Barn dates back to as long ago as the 13th Century, and was transported from its home in the quiet Welsh hills to the village of Eaton in the late 20th Century, where it was carefully restored to create the stunning wedding venue you see today.

With an idyllic atmosphere, impeccable catering and the perfect mix of accommodation, the Plough at Eaton offers you the perfect setting for your wedding with a difference. We can cater for both small and large events, and will do whatever it takes to make your event as unique or traditional as you wish. When you choose a wedding at The Plough, you can rest assured that your day will be as unique as you are.

The medieval Oak Barn is a licensed venue to hold Civil Ceremonies for up to 70 guests. We can also accommodate up to 105 guests for your wedding breakfast in the Barn and evening celebration.

When it comes to the food, The Plough offers a range of delicious options, covering everything from tantalizing canapés to delicious meals and old favourites for evening food. With a number of different packages and options, it’s easy to create the perfect menu for your day.

At the end of the night you and your guests can kick off your dancing shoes and retire to one of The Plough’s 17 en-suite bedrooms, including double, twin and family rooms. Each room has been stylishly designed by London’s Michael Priest of Belgravia and is set away from the main building, offering peace and a restful night’s sleep after the day’s festivities.

Our Beautiful Wedding Day

Words can not describe how wonderful our wedding was on 22nd Aug 15. From the minute we first went to see The Plough everything about our wedding has been so easy and relaxed. Laurie organised everything perfectly and gave us ideas for the day that we never thought of. We were able to have the our day the way we wanted, they were so flexible about food, timings, decorations etc. Nothing was too much trouble and there were no hidden costs or stupid charges like we had seen at so many other venues. On the day all I can say is PERFECT! Everything went to plan, all of the staff were calm and so helpful. They helped with the decorations, and even brought out some extras for us to use! My new husband has said how much Laurie and the team calmed him down, he was so nervous but speaking to them reassured him the day was going well! The food on the day was amazing, in particular all of the gluten free alternatives they produced for us! Everyone of our guests went home happy and full! They even packed us up some of the left over food for our BBQ the next day which went down very well! We would just both like to say a massive thank you, our day was exactly what we wanted, how we wanted it and you even made the sun come out for us :0) I would fully recommend getting married at The Plough especially if you want a relaxed, informal, beautiful, and fun

Decided to have our wedding reception at the Plough Inn and we were truly looked after from start to finish!. We had all our needs catered to and the day went perfect! The food package we had was great and all our guests spoke highly of the meal. We had the best night ever, so glad we had our reception at the plough inn and would definitely recommend it! We stayed overnight and the room was amazing! Very clean and comfy. Its such a fantastic place to visit.

We had our wedding at the Plough Inn and couldn't have wished for a better day. The food was amazing as was the whole day. The staff were all amazing, especially Laurie who sort of became our wedding planner! The bride and hen party stayed at The Plough Inn the night before the wedding as did most of our guests who all commented on how lovely the venue was. Breakfast was also brilliant and the rooms were very good value for money. A huge thank you to everyone at The Plough Inn for making our special day so brilliant and to Laurie for all your hard work.
