GB•Pizza•Co’s founders have always been passionate about food. Rachel Seed is a an award-winning chef (Best Gastropub in the South West, UK Food Pub of the Year) and a former food writer; Lisa Richards is a journalist who has travelled the world reviewing hotels and restaurants..
Rachel and Lisa moved to Margate from London (via Spain and the Cotswolds) in 2012 and fell in love with the beautiful Kentish coast. “We love coastal living, but we’re also very lucky to have London and its restaurant scene just over an hour away by train. We most definitely have the best of both worlds.”
GB•PIZZA•CO started life in the back of a 1974 VW Campervan. Rachel and Lisa travelled up and down the country with a “portable” wood-fired oven, serving their pizzas at farmers’ markets, festivals and outdoor events. During the summer of 2012 they served pizza al-fresco on Margate’s Harbour Arm. This is when their love of Margate began. Very quickly afterwards, they found a site on the historic seafront and opened their first permanent restaurant.
The restaurant on Marine Drive, on Margate’s beautiful seafront, now in its fifth year, continues to amass accolades from well-respected and revered publications. In January of 2017, the restaurant was completely refurbished, using GB•PIZZA•CO’s trademark pink neon and greys.
“A serious slice on the seafront.”
The Guardian, August 2013
“Best pizza on the planet.”
Red magazine, September 2013
“Seasonal and local ingredients on Margate seafront… imaginative toppings.”
Runner-up, Best Cheap Eats, Observer Food Monthly, two years in a row
“Part of Margate’s resurgence… Choose from the small, well thought-out menu.”

Yes, we welcome well-behaved doggies & children /// Yes, we take reservations – give the number above a call to reserve a table /// Yes, we do takeaways, but we don’t deliver /// E-cigarettes are not allowed /// Electronic devices playing music and/or video without headphones are not allowed /// Our pizzas change seasonally /// Our offer days are available throughout the year /// We serve gluten-free bases and pudding, but due to the tiny size of our restaurant, only having one wood-fired oven and the amount of flour we use, we cannot guarantee a flour-free environment /// Our self-service wine taps mean you help yourself to wine, but the price is for one glass and not a bottomless refill /// We wish we were bigger, but due to size restrictions, we only have two high-chairs and our loo is tiny, so we can’t squeeze in baby changing facilities. Sorry!
