SHEFFIELD’S nationally and internationally acclaimed restaurant Jöro has won approval for its plans for a boutique hotel as its hugely successful brand continues to flourish.
CODA Planning 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, 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.
And following advice from planning officers, the project has now been given the green light by councillors.
Urban restaurant Jöro is based in the city’s iconic Krynkl at Shalesmoor, the space created from 26 recycled shipping containers to showcase the best and most exciting independent start-ups and businesses in Sheffield.
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 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.”
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.
