The Plough is combining its outstanding location and accommodation with its new restaurant menu, to create a boutique wedding service for intimate exclusive wedding parties.

The award winning team from The Jolly Fisherman have launched their exceptional menu at The Plough to bring fine dining and the ideal a la carte menu for a wedding function to the hotel and restaurant in Alnwick’s picturesque town centre.


The team at The Plough is now being led front of house by Michael Bateman as Operations Manager, and his experience working with some of the leading boutique hotels in the country including The Samling in The Lake District, means that now, managing a special wedding is second nature for the team at The Plough.


Michael Bateman explained: ‘We have worked exceptionally hard to deliver great value and outstanding service here at The Plough, and we now have the culinary experience to ensure we can offer the complete package for exclusive weddings. We can cater for up to 80 guests and would offer the sort of attention to detail and quality of service, food and accommodation that you would expect from any luxury food destination.’


‘We can secure the entire venue for private events and parties and so the wedding market is now a primary target, offering the perfect experience for that once in a lifetime event. I joined The Plough to bring my own experience of working in the top end wedding event market to this outstanding venue, in a wonderful location.’ 


The team at The Plough have recently launched the menu from The Jolly Fisherman under the guidance of Executive Head Chef Kevin Mulraney. Kevin has relaunched the entire menu and added his own award winning touches to this excellent menu with a focus on local produce and the finest ingredients.


David Whitehead, MD of The Jolly Fisherman Group commented: ‘We have brought together all the ingredients necessary for the perfect exclusive wedding event. Our culinary team have developed an a la carte fine dining experience at The Plough which makes it the perfect environment for a celebration meal.’


‘Then we have the first class accommodation with the opportunity for numerous family rooms and bridal suite accommodation on site. Then we have the management team based at The Plough led by Michael, who brings outstanding experience of working in destination venues like The Samling. His experience and the teams attention to detail makes The Plough the absolutely perfect location for any small family boutique wedding.’
