Information For The Plough Inn

The Plough Inn dates back as far as the 15th century when it began life as a small farm and coaching inn. Our beautiful Oak Barn dates back as far as the 13th century and was transported from its home in the Welsh hills to the village of Eaton during the late 20th century where it was carefully restored by master craftsmen to create our stunning wedding venue that you see today.

With its idyllic ambience, excellent catering and ideal mix of accommodation, The Plough Inn offers the perfect setting for any event with a difference! We cater for both small & large parties and will do everything in our power to make your occasion extra special!

Our medieval oak barn is licensed to hold Civil Ceremonies for up to 85 guests, and we also have the luxury of being just a stone’s throw away from some of Cheshire’s most picturesque and historic church’s. We can also accommodate up to 115 guests for your wedding breakfast and evening celebration.
At the end of the night you and your guests can kick off your dancing shoes and retire to one of our 17 en-suite bedrooms including our beautifully refurbished Bridal Suite. All of our rooms are set away from the main building, offering peace and a restful nights sleep after the days festivities.

If you would like any further information or would like to make an appointment to come and have a look around, please do not hesitate to contact our dedicated wedding and events team.

We look forward to hearing from you!

So excited to find the perfect wedding venue barn with a pub and accommodation. Can't wait to marry my other half. Seeing your daughter and son has flower girl and ring bearer will melt our hearts. In these low times gives us hope and excitement for the future when we can celebrate once more with family and friends

Beautiful rustic Barn
We have books our venue during lockdown with the help of Laurie at The Plough. She has helped our by giving us zoom calls and endless emails! Even though we can’t see the venue in person yet, we didn’t want to miss out on such a gorgeous barn style venue that we could afford!

The staff have been extremely helpful during a very difficult time and have gone that extra mile to accommodate the changes we have had to make because of the pandemic.

Amazing rustic wedding
The Plough Inn is not far from our home and when searching for a wedding venue it ticked all of the boxes for us. The barn where we got married was absolutely stunning - something which we felt really made it stand out from many of the other venues that we looked at. The day ran amazingly smoothly - everyone commented on how excellent the food was! It really was delicious. We can’t thank the Plough enough for a beautiful, beautiful day. Nadine and Elliot

Wonderful wedding venue We had our wedding here in May. The barn was just what we wanted, rustic with wooden beams. Laurie & Gabbi were great in the lead up to & on our wedding day. On the day Laurie was lovely, ever so politely keeping us on time for things & making sure everything went to plan, even helping with the table decorations & putting my veil in! The food was delicious, we had originally expected Xmas party quality food as serving over 50 people at one time but so many guests commented on how lovely it was. Thank you to all at The Plough for making our day so fabulous. Tim & Rachel

We held our wedding in the barn at The Plough two weeks ago and it was absolutely perfect. We were extremely lucky with the weather and everything went like clockwork; you couldn't fault Gabriella and the team for the way they conducted the day. Our guests loved the venue and we were able to enjoy the day to the fullest.
