“Classy modern cooking in a shipping container” - AA Inspector
SHEFFIELD, SOUTH YORKSHIRE
Our Inspector's view
A converted shipping container off a roundabout on the outskirts of Steel City doesn’t sound too inviting a prospect, but Jöro’s urban edginess is bang in tune with the contemporary trend for neo-Nordic-influenced eating. Inside, the space has a minimalist feel with bare wood floors and tables decorated with flowers and baby vegetables, the buzz of an open kitchen adding to the convivial vibe. Despite the urban surrounds, the kitchen team maintains a close bond to nature, working with local farms and foragers to provide a steady flow of seasonal materials, and the small plate concept encourages diners to try a salvo of different dishes. Expect pin-sharp techniques and combinations that pack a punch, starting with a perfect piece of mackerel in miso-boosted broth alongside kohlrabi pickled in buttermilk whey, intensely sweet and smoky wood-fired onions, and roasted yeast purée, followed by mallard with red cabbage ketchup and blackcurrant jam.

About the area
Discover South Yorkshire
Traditionally a steel and coal producing centre, the decline of both industries in South Yorkshire has been replaced to some extent by tourism based around the area’s beautiful Pennine countryside. The county claims part of the Peak District National Park, whose hills and dales provide welcome space for the large urban populations.
South Yorkshire is made up of four districts: City of Sheffield, Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham. Barnsley is the county’s administrative centre, located on one of Britain’s richest coalfields. The town has an entry in the Domesday Book and was built on land belonging to the priories of Pontefract and Monk Bretton. Doncaster, originally a Roman station, is set on the River Don. It is known particularly for its racecourse, best known for the St Leger in September. In 1875, Charles Dickens watched it from the 18th century Italianate grandstand at the Town Moor racecourse. The Lincolnshire Handicap is held in March. The town also boasts fine Georgian architecture and Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery.
