Jöro's Stacey and Luke French to open Sheffield gastro-hotel

Luke French, chef-owner of Jöro restaurant in Sheffield, and his partner Stacey have revealed they are opening a gastro-hotel in the city called House of Jöro in June.

Located in a £10m mixed-use development at Palatine Gardens completed by David Cross's Coda Planning, the hotel will comprise four en suite bedrooms designed by Stacey.

The deal was based on a five-year rent repayment contract. Cross also brought the pair in to Krynkl, the business, restaurant and retail shipping container hub in which Jöro the restaurant is located nearby.

"It will be an extension to Jöro. It's a five-minute walk," Stacey told The Caterer. "We could have paid ourselves, but decided [the deal] worked well last time and now [with Covid] we're glad we didn't outlay cash."

Its USP will be a communal space with a 10-seat dining table and kitchen. The vision is that at weekends, the bedrooms will be booked by small groups and Luke or high-profile guest chefs will cook them a bespoke tasting menu. During the week, it will be available as a private dining space – meeting demand from corporate customers – and there will also be a midweek package for individuals or groups, with dinner at Jorö and a night at the hotel.

The eight-course tasting menu with bed and breakfast packages will start from £130 per person.
