Unique Bar & Barn Alternative Wedding Venue

Vaughan’s Pub has been in the family for over 300 years. The Barn where we hold our weddings was converted from a coach house in the mid 1980’s and makes for a unique and memorable wedding venue.

The Barn was fully converted in 1991 and has been used for set-dancing ever since. It is popular with locals for holding family celebrations and in the last few years has been used to great success as a unique and alternative wedding venue.

We look forward to sharing your wedding day with you & working with you to put your own unique signature on your special day.
