Award winning Sheffield restaurant set to launch new boutique hotelPosted by: Ashley Birch
Joro has submitted plans for a boutique hotel and dining room at the Palatine Gardens development
Sheffield’s nationally and internationally acclaimed restaurant Jöro is set to launch its first boutique hotel, if plans are approved by Sheffield City Council.
CODA Planning has submitted proposals to the council, on behalf of Jöro, to open a four double bedroom boutique hotel and dining room at the recently completed nearby Palatine Gardens development.
The Crossbow Ventures’ development is a £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.
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”
Jöro is based in Krynkle at Shalesmoor, a 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 also holds a Bib Gourmand in the 2019 Michelin Guide, 3 AA Rosettes and a score of 5 in The Good Food Guide
The success of the restaurant has helped turn Krynkle into a major Sheffield and has led to the brand opening a second spin-off site in Kelham Island food hall Cutlery works.
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.
