We took the really difficult decision to close for two weeks in January. We realised that removing pizza from people’s lives in the darkest month was a cruel thing to do, but GB•PIZZA•CO needed a facelift. After four incredibly busy years – busier than we could ever have hoped for – the restaurant needed a new look, more storage and some much-needed attention.
Using our pink neon and grey pallet as inspiration, and local designers and makers to help us turn the vision into a reality, GB•PIZZA•CO reopened its doors on Wednesday 25th January 2017. The look? Kinda Margate meets Palm Springs and Beverly Hills, circa 1950.
With a bespoke neon piece using our “You Wanna Pizza Me?” logo – that’s been emblazoning our branding since we first opened in 2012; a mural designed by Margate hero Zoe Murphy; soft furnishings by local companies Browns Trimming and Lazy Goose; gorgeous worktops by Canterbury Stone; plus dusky pink metro tiles, brass trimmings and a brand new bar. The hard work was done by local building company Prime Contracting (South East) Limited.

Fours years (and three months) ago, we took the terrifying, exciting step of opening our permanent restaurant on Marine Drive, after a summer of love on Margate’s Harbour Arm, braving the elements.
Thanks to our wonderful customers, GB•PIZZA•CO has been a huge success and we’ve received more press coverage and positive reviews than we could ever have dreamed of. We’ve also met some wonderful people along the way, many of whom have become friends.
We feel it’s time to reinvest some of the love that you have shown us over the last four years back into the restaurant. We also could never have imagined how busy we’d get and that we’d need tons more space to store food stock and drinks (you’re a hungry and thirsty lot!).
So, the bad news is that we’re closing for two weeks from January 9th. But, the good news is that we’ll reopen with a gorgeous new look (still with our signature style, but updated and revived) and tons more storage so we’ll never run out of dough again!
We look forward to welcoming you all in to see the newly-refurbished GB•PIZZA•CO on Saturday 21st January. Watch this space for pre-closure and relaunch offers and events.

We are incredibly proud to be working alongside Turner Contemporary to help raise funds for their inspiring, life-changing educational programme.
Our new pizza, the ‘We Heart Turner Contemporary’ pizza launches on Monday 5th September. We will be donating 50p from the sale of each pizza to the gallery, so they can continue their incredible work within our communities.
The very special pizza is topped with artichoke hearts (get it?!), with homemade basil and rocket pesto and British air-dried ham.
We are absolutely delighted to have such a well-respected cultural beacon in our town and to be a part of the positive, exciting changes it has inspired.

We are very pleased to announce that we feature in Daniel Young’s tome devoted to the best pizza in the world. Young, along with a team of experts, has scoured the planet in search of superior slices. We are delighted we made the cut, putting us alongside some of our food heroes. Want to be the world’s best pizza? Come to Margate!

We’ve just heard some rather marvellous news: GB Pizza will be featuring in The Sunday Times’ and Daniel Young’s list of top 25 pizzerias in the UK this weekend. Not bad for a little restaurant on the seafront in Margate that’s been serving up thin and crispy pizzas for nearly four years! We’re so happy with our achievement and we’re delighted and touched by the continued support from the people of Thanet.
This weekend, starting from midday on Friday and while stocks last, we’ll be giving away free Prosecco to celebrate our achievement and to say thank you to our customers and supporters. We actually, honestly couldn’t do it without out you.
Come to Margate for award-winning pizza!
