UK: Sheffield’s acclaimed restaurant Jöro has won approval for its plans to develop a boutique hotel nearby.
The hotel will be based in the ground floor commercial unit at Palatine Gardens – a £10 million project by Crossbow Ventures of 101 studio and duplex penthouse apartments.
It will comprise four double, en suite rooms and a central dining suite.
Head chef and co-owner at Jöro, Luke French, said: “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 going 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”.
Located in the city’s Krynkl at Shalesmoor – an area created from 26 recycled shipping containers to showcase independent start-ups and businesses – Jöro 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-locale produce, much of which is foraged, to produce a range of seasonal small plates to critical acclaim.
