The chef

Rex, one of ten children born in Kuala Lumpar of Ceylonese Dutch/ French family arrived in the UK in 1959, a boy of just 4 years old.

Introduced to the restaurant "life" at the young age of 13, he worked along side his older brothers in the family restaurant.

At that time he was told "do it right or not at all". This has been his mantra for over 30 years at The Bay Tree Restaurant. Being extremely passionate about food he uses his vast knowledge of cuisine from around the world, ensuring with his other chefs and front of house staff, the most splendid dining experiences.
