Sheffield restaurant Juke & Loe announce closure
The owners of Michelin-recommended restaurant Juke & Loe have today announced the venue will be closing its doors next month.
The popular Ecclesall Road spot, which recently received a glowing review from Guardian food critic Jay Rayner, has come to the end of its 5-year lease and the team were unable to agree on new terms with the landlord.
In a statement posted to Facebook, the owners explained the situation:
It is with a heavy heart that we make this announcement. Juke and Loe will close its doors on the 28th of May this year. Our 5-year lease is up and despite negotiations with our landlord we are unable to come to a new agreement that benefits and protects the business and staff, this leaves us with no choice but to walk away.
We are on the lookout for other premises in and around Sheffield. So if you know of anything, please do drop us a message. Sharing this post would also be very appreciated, to spread the word.
It’s been a tremendous 5 years with highs and lows, we have enjoyed great success with recognition from guides, the national press and food critics alike. Of course, none of this would be possible without the support we have received from you, the customer. It’s been a fantastic journey and we hope to welcome you all along to our next venture as soon as possible.
Above all, our thanks and appreciation go out to the staff, past and present. We couldn’t have asked or wished for better people to share this journey with. Your hard work and dedication have reminded me why we fell in love with this industry in the first place.
Massive thanks again to all.
Joe and Luke
