Peter Lloyd - chef owner of Sticky Mango
Peter trained at The House of Commons and the Dorchester Hotel on Park Lane and secured his first head chef position at RSJ Restaurant Waterloo aged just 23. Here he was given creative freedom which allowed him to flourish, producing menus that wowed the critics as well as the public, and saw him awarded two AA Rosettes. During this period, Lloyd found time to squeeze in stages with Pierre Koffmann, Gordon Ramsay, Marco Pierre White and a week in Chicago working with the late Chef Charlie Trotter.
In 2009, after long stints as head chef at BANK restaurant, City Inn Hotels and as a private chef to Lord and Lady Bamford, Peter discovered his passion for South East Asian Cuisine as Executive Chef at the 5 Star Sanderson Hotel and Suka Restaurant. In 2011 Peter took the helm as Executive Chef of Spice Market at The W Hotel a concept created by world-renowned 2 Michelin Star Chef Jean- Georges Vongerichten.
Following Spice Market’s closure in 2016, Nigel Wilkinson, RSJ Restaurant’s owner invited Peter to open his own restaurant on the first floor of RSJ and Sticky Mango was born. When Nigel retired, Peter grasped the opportunity to take on the whole restaurant and today runs the restaurant with his partner Rosa D’Imperio who he met while working together at Spice Market.
Peter has appeared on numerous TV shows including Saturday Kitchen, BBC Celebrity Masterchef and Junior Bake Off.
