House of JÖRO, a new boutique hotel and the latest creative venture from celebrated chef Luke French and his wife and business director, Stacey Sherwood-French has opened in Sheffield.

House of JÖRO features four design-led rooms as well as an intimate 10-seater chef’s table. Located just a stone’s throw away from the flagship restaurant JÖRO, House of JÖRO will provide visitors with a luxurious place to spend a foodie staycation in the heart of Sheffield.  

Offering a tranquil space to unwind after a meal in the chef’s signature style, rooms – designed by Stacey Sherwood-French – have been carefully considered and furnished with luxurious bedding, statement lighting and free-standing roll-top tubs. 

Guests who stay at House of JÖRO can choose from a meal at neighbouring JÖRO or at the hotel’s Chef’s Table. Available for up to 10 guests, the Chef’s Table is located within a fully equipped private dining room within the hotel. 

Guests will be able to enjoy unique, immersive dining experiences with ticketed events such as personal tasting menus with the chef, always with a focus on seasonal, modern food drawing inspiration from local suppliers and cooking techniques from around the world. A high-profile guest chef series is also soon-to-be announced.

House of JÖRO’s interior style takes inspiration from Japanese and Nordic influences to create a relaxing and harmonious environment. The couple’s ethos of sustainability, a key focus in their dining ventures, is mirrored here with natural, sustainable materials being highlighted throughout the space.  

All aspects of interior design have been overseen by Stacey Sherwood-French, with the building itself designed by award-winning architect David Cross, who has worked closely with the pair on various projects. 

Having worked in some of the finest kitchens in the country, Luke French and his wife and business partner Stacey, have made their mark on the culinary scene in the North; opening JÖRO – Sheffield’s first ever Michelin bib restaurant in December 2016; Konjö, a street-food concept in Sheffield with a second location opening in Liverpool soon; Nama – an Izakaya-inspired kitchen counter in Liverpool’s G.P.O Food Hall which opens soon, and now House of JÖRO. Stacey Sherwood-French was recently recognised as one of CODE Hospitality’s 100 most influential women in hospitality 2021.
