Visited this small restaurant recently and was very impressed by all aspects. It is very small, only 4 tables so booking is essential. Lovely thai decor and very friendly and attentive hosts. The food was beautifully served and with some lovely touches. I had delicious fishcakes to start followed by Thai Green curry which was fantastic. My partner had spicy... More

Me and my Wife visited the Shemera guest house during a week break in Keswick and were blown away by the quality of food and service. From the moment we walked in we felt very welcome and being able to take of own wine (for a very reasonable corkage fee) was a great bonus. The food itself was served promptly... More

If you're used to eating Thai in restaurant's you'll be pleasantly surprised at how different your meal at Shemara will be. Each dish is freshly prepared and cooked by Sayfon and is as authentic as you'll get. Real Thai homestyle cooking at it's best and very good value for money. Booking essential as they can only cater for about 10... More

Although we enjoy thai food, we have been disappointed with some restaurants and their small portions hence leaving the restaurant still feeling hungry, therefore it was refreshing to indulge in some very tasty thai food with decent size portions. The "restaurant" is located in the breakfast room of the B&B but don't let this put you off - the decor... More

Known about the Atkinsons family business for sometime now & finally got to experience Fon's delicious Thai food last night. It certainly won't be a long time before my husband & I return again as this place is a little gem. Limited availability so booking essential. Thank you so much for a lovely evening Faith Brian & Sandra

Whilst staying for a week on B&B at this guest house, we enjoyed one evening meal in the beautiful Thai-themed restaurant, which is the front room of the establishment. The food was excellent, and the service just as it should be.
