London-based pub operator Faucet Inn has opened a Nordic-inspired all-day dining, coffee and retail concept at Paddington's Merchant Square.

KuPP serves an all-day dining menu featuring Scandinavian ingredients, such as Norwegian Gravadlax, designed to be enjoyed socially with a number of 'graze and share' options.

Inspired by the Swedish Fika coffee-break culture, coffee is served with freshly-baked beans and pastries that customers can enjoy on site or as ‘grab and go’ items.

Kupp has also created its own espresso and filter coffee blend, which will be available to buy in store.

The bar area features high-bench seating for around 50 diners. Drinks will be available from huge Krusovice beer tanks in a tankard, schooner or growler, alongside a range of artisan and craft bottled beers and a wine list.

All-day dining

The all-day dining concept consists of three main menus with a focus on grazing and sharing dishes.The Breakfast menu features toasted rye bread and rye crispbread with preserves and salted butter (£3.50); spicy poached eggs, with chilli butter, natural yoghurt, fresh chives and sour dough toast (£8.50); and smoked trout and crushed avocado, on toasted sourdough with lemon and  pea shoots (£9).

There is also a breakfast ‘bord’ that offers Norwegian salmon Gravadlax, smoked Sussex ham, Västerbotten cheese, seasonal citrus, pickles, toasted rye and crisp bread for £11.50.

The Dining menu offers an extensive choice of graze and share dishes. Included on the list is: new potato salad and home-smoked trout, with capers, shaved red onion, cornichons and cress (£8); goats curd and beets, with roasted red peppers and sour berry dressing (£5.50); and homemade potted rabbit, with nutmeg butter, pickled vegetables and toast (£6.50).

The KuPP Bord, for two or more people, offers special house-smoked pork meatballs, smoked Sussex ham, chorizo sausage roll, Västerbotten cheese, a selection of salads, pickled vegetables, sourdough & rye crispbread (£20).

The KuPP Crayfish Party, meanwhile, is half-a-lobster, crayfish, our potato salad, and two shots of aquavit (£30).

Grill & Oven

There is also a Grill & Oven menu, which includes: proper pork handmade Swede dog and skinny fries, with Pickled cabbage, gherkins and sweet mustard (£9); KuPP’s Baked Salmon coulibiac in salted puff pastry, with potatoes, salad, pickled vegetables and mustard dill sauce (£15.50); Karelian pork hot pot, comprising a very slow-cooked pork shoulder with pickled red cabbage, parsley and thyme (£14.50).

Faucet Inn founder and managing director Steve Cox said: “KuPP represents all that we love about coffee, food, drink and Scandinavia – and we want to share this with our customers.

“Most importantly, there will be a little bit of our favourite things available in our store for guests to purchase and take home with them.”

KuPP is open seven days a week from 7am Monday to Friday and 10am at weekends.
