We have been following the reviews on Tripadvisor for the last 18 months, intending to pay the Thai restaurant at the Shemara Guesthouse a visit. We finally got round to it on a Friday evening in September and found it outstanding. From the moment we rang the bell, we were made to feel very welcome by the hosts Fon and Richard. We had been a little dubious about how it would feel dining in the front room of a guest house, however it was tastefully decorated and we very soon got talking to another two couples who were also dining there. As there are only around six tables, everything is prepared to individual tastes and we were able to discuss the required spiciness with Richard and Fon before committing ourselves. We had spicy fish cakes, Thai rice balls, Massaman curry and red chicken curry with a fragrant spicy rice. I have eaten in many Thai restaurants and do enjoy that style of cooking, however this was the best I have ever tasted. I am a critical person when it comes to food and am not 'bowled over' easily but I am so jealous this is not closer to home. This will be a definite visit every time we stay in Keswick, provided there is a table available. Many thanks Richard, Fon and your daughter for making us feel so welcome and serving us such wonderful food. Don't be worried about taking a bottle of wine or a few bottles of beer with you as the establishment is not licensed, but this seemed common practice with all dining there.
