Historic converted mill set for restaurant development

Sheffield restaurant, Jöro, will be bringing its flavours to Oughtibridge Mill.

Developer, Sky-House Co, is also taking on a major renovation and restoration of centuries old properties at the site.

That includes the conversion of a row of artisan cottages into four apartments and one house alongside the distinctive Sky-House Co properties.

However, the biggest part of the restoration project is the original mill itself which the company’s designers – comprising the team at Sheffield’s CODA Studios – have transformed into a restaurant and deli shop.

It has now been confirmed that the site will be operated by the city’s Jöro restaurant team.

Sky-House Co co-founder and director, David Cross, said: “This really is a major breakthrough for Sheffield and particularly for the north of the city.

“The original mill building will be being transformed in a project that combines the old and the new and fits perfectly with the Sky House philosophy of creating not only great houses but also complete communities.

“It is particularly exciting that an award-winning company like Jöro, which is already putting Sheffield on the culinary map after being such a great success at Krynkl in Shalesmoor, wants to be part of the Oughtibridge Mill story.

“A development the size of Oughtibridge Mill needs the best facilities and that is exactly what we are providing with the mill conversion.

“We are confident it will breathe new life into the old mill, retaining the heritage of the site but also enhancing it and creating a new community destination, for food, drink, work and leisure.”
