SHEFFIELD’S nationally and internationally acclaimed restaurant Jöro is set to launch its first boutique hotel.
CODA Planning has submitted proposals to Sheffield City Council for Jöro to open a four double bedroom boutique hotel and dining room at the recently completed nearby Palatine Gardens development.
Urban restaurant Jöro is based in the city’s iconic Krynkle at Shalesmoor, the space created from 26 recycled shipping containers to showcase the best and most exciting independent start-ups and businesses in Sheffield.
Since its launch, Jöro has been showered with awards and praise, with The Guardian hailing it as a ‘little powerhouse’ and The Mail welcoming it as a ‘downright delight.’
It holds a Bib Gourmand in the 2019 Michelin Guide, 3 AA Rosettes and a score of 5 in The Good Food Guide
The restaurant uses contemporary techniques and hyper-local produce, much of it foraged, to produce a range of critically-acclaimed seasonal small plates.
The success of the restaurant has helped turn Krynkle into a major Sheffield tourist attraction, with visitors coming from all over the UK.
And the decision to expand into Palatine Gardens – Crossbow Ventures’ £10 million project of 101 studio apartments and duplex penthouse apartments on former commercial and light industrial land between Henry Street and Roscoe Road at Shalesmoor – is in response to the increasing popularity of the Joro brand.
Subject to planning approval, the boutique hotel will be based in the ground floor commercial unit at Palatine Gardens, with four en suite rooms and a central dining suite.
Jöro head chef and co-owner Luke French commented: “The success of Jöro has far exceeded all our expectations and we have been delighted with the support we have received both from Crossbow and the whole CODA team.
“We believe that people who have travelled so far to experience what Jöro is all about deserve to be able to expand on that experience and that is why we are pressing ahead with our plans to develop our own boutique hotel. We hope our new venture will enhance Sheffield’s tourism offer and allow more people to stay in our fine city”
