Jemima's has been going for years - I think new owners, but the quality is still excellent. We go to KKNK every year and have not been disappointed

We went to Jemima's on the recommendation of our host, but left very disappointed. It was a nice restaurant with plenty staff and an interesting menu. The problem was that we go to a restaurant mainly for the food. Perhaps we were unlucky as there...More

In most restaurants you would at least find one or two vegetarian options.
Do you have food? I waited an hour and a half with nothing to eat, not even bread!
