Cross Keys head chef sets sights on the Swallow Inn for delicious new adventure

Steph Dexter, the head chef and brains behind the Cross Keys Inn in Grasby, is embarking on a new adventure – running the Swallow Inn.

With amazing views spreading right across the Wolds, the pub makes for the perfect rest stop for walkers, runners, bikers and dog walkers, for some much needed refreshments. Located in the village of Swallow it is only a few miles walk away from local villages and a quick drive away from Laceby and Grimsby.

The traditional style pub prides itself on delivering excellent service, food and drinks in comfortable surroundings.

While running the Swallow Inn, Steph Dexter will also be head chef at the village pub, offering homemade food ranging from a lighter lunch menu to traditional pub classics and Al La Carte Specials.

Steph began her journey at the young age of 16 by working at The White Hart Hotel in Lincoln, whilst also studying catering at college. She then went on to work at Doubletree By The Hilton where she continued her training.

After leaving The Hilton Steph then landed the head chef job at the Horse And Groom where she was able to pick up even more experience. Steph now runs the Cross Keys Inn in Grasby, with the Cross Keys team and the Swallow team working together to run these two kitchens side by side.
