About us

Chef Duet, is on a mission to dish up delicious food catering across North Devon. Chef Duet is an efficient yet creative catering business run by a wife and husband team - Donna & Simon Henry. This couple pride themselves on fair pricing and a noticeable attention-to-detail. Donna designs your menu to burst with local, seasonal flavour and Simon perfects the service, all with a smile.

The couple opened their first café in Acton Town. Following a move to Devon in 2009, they set up Riverside Bideford Guest House and Mad Henry’s Tea Room. In 2018 the duo launched Riverside Bideford Restaurant, serving 3-course meals. Soon after there was a demand from large groups and parties who simply couldn’t fit in the restaurant. At the same time, catering venues across North Devon and Torridge booked chef-quality food for holidaymakers, And so, Chef Duet began - the rest as they say is history.
