Michael Lloyd named head chef at Compleat Angler Riverside restaurant

The two-AA rosette Macdonald Compleat Angler hotel at Marlow, Buckinghamshire, has announced Michael Lloyd as new head chef of the Riverside restaurant.

Lloyd will oversee the hotel's restaurant business, as well as its board rooms, function suites, and banqueting demands. He will bring experience from his previous roles, including time spent alongside the executive chef at Cannizaro House hotel in Wimbledon; as chef de partie at the Vineyard at Stockcross; and Heckfield Place in Hampshire.

Lloyd is also looking to build on the existing menu, and continue to develop the restaurant's stated ethos as a champion of produce sourced from the best places available, including Scottish beef, fresh wild fish, outdoor-reared pork, free-range chicken, and Aberdeen-smoked salmon.

He said: "I'm currently looking at building for the future through the development of the menu, with the aim of putting the hotel back on the map as offering exceptional and beautifully presented cuisine."

The Riverside Restaurant overlooks the Thames, and was recently renovated as part of the Macdonald Hotels £2m refurbishment programme under new operations director Harwood Warrington. It will sit alongside the recently-announced new project at the hotel, restaurant Sindhu, from Michelin-starred Indian chef Atul Kochhar.

The hotel previously housed the 40-seat Aubergine restaurant, part of the London Fine Dining Group. Its functions rooms can also provide a seat-down dinner for 120, or a reception for 200.

Macdonald Hotels was established in 1990 and now runs to 45 hotel properties across the UK, plus 10 larger resorts across the UK and Spain.
