The Plough Inn


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!
