Normally the service in Voujon is very good but tonight (25.2.17) it fell below way below expectations. Starters not served; 40 minutes for a main course; general unhappiness in the restaurant. They seem to have decided take-away orders take priority over in-house diners?

Great little restaurant. The food was tasty, the portions more than ample and the staff were excellent. And to top it all there was a red rose for the ladies, as it was Valentine's day. Definitely worth a visit.

We revisited with 2 other couples on a Thursday evening. Three or four other tables occupied and a cheerful welcome. Given decent time to settle down before drinks order taken then similarly for food. No rush and no pressure. My wife declared the pakora was one of the best she has ever had. Some different, interesting items on the menu... More

We were taking my son in law out for his birthday. His choice. But I really enjoyed it. Restaurant was a tad quiet on an early Sunday evening. Always a good sign when regulars from immediate area are coming in on return visits to pick up take away. There were several popped in when we were there. Extensive and varied... More

There were six of us, and had a great time. One person in our party uses a wheelchair and the staff were helpful in moving chairs so he could manoeuvre, and offered to add an extra table to ours (even though it was a busy evening) if we needed extra space.
