Margate restaurant

Our Margate restaurant has been open on the historic seafront since October 2012. When we first arrived in Margate, back in May of 2013, the stretch of buildings that houses our restaurant was pretty much empty, apart our brave and brilliant neighbours: one selling candy floss, one selling rock and seaside gifts, another offering arts classes to kids in the community, and a great art gallery.

In just six short months, we have a Caribbean restaurant open next door, a boutique hotel opening two doors down, a dance studios set to open in the summer, an incredible gallery space called Parade and other spaces becoming available. We also have witnessed the building of Margate’s beautiful new sea defences, which include steps down to the beach from just outside our doors.

Margate, you’re looking good.

We love Margate. We’re obsessed with our new home. To see just a few of the snaps we take whilst admiring this wonderful town, click here.

In just six short months, we now have a lovely wine bar next door, a boutique hotel two doors down, a dancehall, an Eastern European restaurant that serves poky cocktails on its terrace and even a chocolate bar.

gluten-free pizza

We are so sorry for the wait, but we are pleased to finally announce that we can now offer a gluten-free base for our pizzas – which has been quite tricky, thanks to the intense temperature of our wood-fired oven. Many of the recipes just haven’t behaved as they should.

Made with organic wholemeal rice flour, organic cornflour, organic rice flour, yeast, organic raw cane sugar and sea salt, we will be offering a gluten-free pizza every day – but we do ask that you pre-order your base (24 hours in advance, as the dough needs to rest) and that we have to apply a surcharge of £1 for each gluten-free base. Please note that the base is not as thin and crispy as our usual recipe, due to the heat of the oven floor, and takes a little longer to cook, it’s still really delicious.

While we’ll do all we can to keep the gluten-free bases away from the other bases (it won’t be put through our dough roller, for example), we’re afraid we cannot guarantee that the bases will be completely free of traces of wheat flour.

Call us now to book a table and a base! 01843 297700

It’s ironic that a low-cost airline – the industry seen as being responsible for decimating British seaside towns with their cheap package holidays to the Costas back in the late 1960s and 70s – is using a poorly thought through ad campaign pitching Margate against Malaga in 2013. This despite Margate being named by the esteemed Rough Guides as one of 2013’s hottest destinations in the world – we rub shoulders with Stockholm, Dubrovnik and Puerto Rico. Some may have mocked Margate’s positioning in this list, but it speaks volumes about the town’s exciting upswing and the efforts of its inhabitants. We love Margate, as you all know, and we spend our days showing off about its amazing beaches, galleries, people, skies, restaurants, shops and architecture. We’re very lucky to call this amazing place home.

We make pizza.

We use the best ingredients we can find – local, if possible, and never processed. We don’t supply cutlery: pick your thin base pizza up with your fingers, Naples-style! Our coffee takes time. As does our homemade tomato sauce, which we cook for hours. Our wine merchant works with small vineyards – we have 2 barrels, usually with a red and a white, with a rosé in the summer. Grab a napkin from your table & if you need something else, come up to the bar. We welcome well-behaved doggies and children. In fact, we have a rather large, well-behaved doggie of our own, a Great Dane called Henry. If you don’t like dogs, may we politely suggest you get a takeaway? We cater for large parties or can cover your table in candles for an intimate dinner-à-deux.

Good food, a warm welcome, a relaxed atmosphere. Pop in and use our free wifi. Have a three-course dinner or an after-work glass of wine. Come in and read the papers and stack of glossy magazines. Whether you want a celebratory meal or coffee-to-go, come see us.

Our new restaurant, on Margate’s seafront, is now open. With a pared-back, industrial look and key lighting features, we’ve already had some incredibly compliments about our new home: “Margate has never seen anything like it,” being just one.

We’re offering half-price pizza and half-price coffee all week until Sunday, so come and join us for wood-fired pizza, coffee (the best in Margate, courtesy of Shore Coffee UK) and gelato (from London purveyors Gelupo Gelato).

Open from 10am until 10pm, Tuesday to Sunday, you can swing by for a coffee, enjoy lunch or dinner, or pop in for a drink.

Please note that our alcohol licence arrives on 1st November, so it’s bring-your-own booze until then.

We love it when anyone says nice things about. It makes us feel even more fabulous when they’re really cool and hip and know what they’re talking about. Read a great piece about our pizza pop-up on the Harbour Arm in Flux magazine here. Flux is a “spirited, independent fashion, music and arts magazine featuring the best, living, breathing culture from across the UK…”

"pizza restaurant Margate"

Our new restaurant in Margate opens in October! A roof over our heads at last! We’ll be open six days a week for wood-fired pizza. More news coming soon! Work has already begun on the unit and we’re on schedule. The same concept as our pop-up on the Harbour Arm (which will open again in the summer): come and order your food, grab your drink, take a pew, wait for your order, come and get it, go eat!
