Joro is based in the Krynkl building at Shalesmoor, which was created from 26 recycled shipping containers to showcase the independent start-ups and businesses.

Head chef and Joro co-owner Luke French said: “The success of Joro has far exceeded all our expectations.

“We believe that people who have travelled so far to experience what Joro 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.”

Joro holds a Bib Gourmand in the 2019 Michelin Guide, 3 AA Rosettes and a score of 5 in The Good Food Guide.
