Great food, a very pleasant atmosphere. The staff here are very attentive and really make you very welcome. My wife and I celebrated here with an anniversary meal. The food was excellent and good value. I would recommend.

Brazilian Steakhouse
Durham
About the restaurant
Estabulo Rodizio Bar & Grill honour the Brazilian Gaúcho’s traditional method of cooking. This involves taking the most delicious and flavoursome cuts of meat, which are then skewered and cooked slowly on open flames. This method of cooking also means that all the meat served to you fresh at your table, straight from the grill. You can eat as much or as little as you like, and we have a large selection of meats on offer, so you can stick to what you know or try something a little bit different! We also have a selection of Vegetarian, Halal and Fish dishes on offer and the salad bar which is the perfect start to your meal, and accompanies our entire menu perfectly as little palate cleansers between each skewer that reaches your table.

We booked for 3.00 which was almost the the end of the lunch menu and just before dinner so there was a point where we were the only ones in, but never the less the service and food was really nice xx

A nice place. Service was a little slow initially. I suspect that they were slightly understaffed. It didn’t spoil the evening. We will be back.

About the restaurant
WELCOME TO RUNA FARM
Runa Farm, is an intensely rustic inspired hotel, country pub and wedding venue quite unlike any other, combining natural rural beauty with cool Balearic vibes to deliver something wholly unique, as its guests will discover…

In brief, it was our plan to create an individual and special destination for “boho, honest and earthy” experiences with the farm and its produce at the very heart.

The result is a loveable, laid-back and luxurious County Durham country retreat complete with standout spaces and suites, cool glamping and field-to-fork dining, inviting people to gather, feast, stay, and enjoy every element of its feelgood spirit and endless appeal.
