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!

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.

we got married here yesterday (April 2019) nothing is too much trouble for Laurie and the team at the Plough, would very much recommend it if you're looking for a very reasonably priced venue. Food was great, service also, and rooms very nice too.

Jessika & Martins day was so full of emotion! So much love and happiness all around, we were so pleased to play such a big part in their special day. Jessika had such a clear vision of what she wanted resulting in the beautiful you can see here.

What an amazing day it was! The ceremony was concluded by a traditional tea ceremony. The day was filled with vibrant color and happiness , the video captured by New Venture Productions we feel truly captured the day and what an amazing time that was had!
