Welcome to the Dressers Arms, Wheelton, Chorley.

There is always a warm and friendly welcome at The Dressers Arms which can be found on Briers Brow Wheelton half way between J8 of the M61 and J3 of the M65 on the A674.

In the 1700′s the pub was a one room pub serving the thirsts of the workers at the nearby Slate Delf Quarry after a hard day dressing stone and hence the name. Over the years the pub changed very little and in the 1960′s it was owned by Matthew Brown Brewery of Blackburn and was reported to be the smallest pub in Lancashire having just a beer licence to sell one beer and a mild. Towards the end of the 60′s the pub was sold at auction for £36,500 and following an extensive refurbishment became a free house selling an assortment of beers and lagers from various breweries. Now in the 21st century The Dressers Arms welcomes customers from all over Lancashire and beyond serving a wide choice of food and drink and at any one time has eight different real hand pulled ales on sale.

Using mainly local produce the pub menu is homely and is complemented by the daily changing specials board. Our aim is to provide a value for money, quality eating and drinking experience for the whole family.

The Dressers Arms prides itself as being a pub at the heart of the community and has a thriving pool team and holds a regular quiz night on Tuesdays with a large cash quiz pot.
