Already a firm favourite in South Manchester, GB•PIZZA•CO is at the heart of the community it serves. Open seven days a week, the team have been receiving accolades from local food writers and publications in the short 12 months they’ve been open. Serving wood-fired pizza topped with British (and especially northern) ingredients, plus locally-made cakes, locally-roasted coffee and even apple juice made with apples grown just a couple of miles down the road, GB•PIZZA•CO Didsbury is hugely grateful for the support they’ve received in the last 12 months.
Happy Birthday, Grant, Kally and the GB•PIZZA•CO Didsbury team!

We’ve been in The Good Food Guide every single year since we opened our doors on Margate’s seafront in 2012. We strive for quality and we seek out the best British ingredients to top our wood-fired pizzas. To be featured again is such a huge honour – something we don’t take lightly, especially as we live in a town with so many great independent restaurants.
Thanks to our amazing team who work hard and passionately, seven days a week.

In the last 14 months, GB•PIZZA•CO® is incredibly proud to have raised £1378 for the Turner Contemporary’s engaging, inspiring educational programme, thanks to selling 2,756 “We ‘heart’ Turner Contemporary” pizzas. 50p from every sale went directly to the gallery’s charity.
In this new year, we have a new charity to support. Our new charity pizza will donate 50p from each sale directly to The Brain Tumour Charity. Brain tumours are the biggest killer of people under 40 and is the most under funded of cancers.
And this very personal to us. Our co-founder and owner, Rachel Seed, has been battling a brain tumour for 12 years. At the end of last year, we got some really rubbish news: the tumour had made another return, this time more aggressive than ever. She has already had four rounds of brain surgery plus radiotherapy, and is now undergoing chemotherapy. We will – Rachel, our family, friends, and our GB•PIZZA•CO family – keep fighting and keep hoping.
By supporting this amazing charity that, as well as offering support to patients, also funds much-needed pioneering research and medical trials, we hope this horrible disease will be beaten. The Brain Tumour Charity is at the forefront of the fight to defeat brain tumours. We hope that our customers will help us raise much-needed funds for this incredibly important charity that relies 100% on voluntary donations.
Our first pizza for The Brain Tumour Charity is the braised leek, thyme and the Urban Cheese Maker’s Rebellion cheese, and is on sale now. We will also be raising money for The Brain Tumour Charity on National Pizza Day on 9th February.
We want to thank the Turner Contemporary for their blessing in changing our charity pizza’s beneficiary.

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.
