Square Meal Review of GB Pizza Co Margate ?

The brainchild of former chef Rachel Seed and journalist Lisa Richards, the GB Pizza Co started life as a travelling VW Campervan, before the duo bedded in at this permanent site hard by Margate’s historic seafront. Pink neon, charcoal-toned walls, scuffed tables and vintage metal-framed chairs set the tone, although everything hinges on the output of the centrepiece wood-fired oven. There are generally eight varieties of “fresh, fast, reasonably priced” pizzas on offer (plus weekly specials), ranging from the basic ‘Margate-rita’ (geddit!) to Wiltshire air-dried ham and rocket or pear, ricotta and blue cheese – all prepared using seasonal British ingredients from artisan producers. Ice creams are specially made by Gelupo in Soho, apple juice comes from Kent, and there’s organic wine straight from the temperature-controlled barrel. You can’t help marvelling at the “peerless feel-good ingenuity” of it all.

    Samphire and Salsify :: GB Pizza Co, Margate

    I’ve been to Margate a few times and it’s not exactly known for its food offerings; that was until GB Pizza Co came along. We went to their restaurant on Exmouth Market and really loved it so on a sunny Sunday trip to the seaside we couldn’t resist popping into their original. Based on the seafront, it was a simple space with shared tables and the menu on the wall behind the counter where you order. Because we’re pigs, we ordered three pizzas. The crusts aren’t spongy like you find in other pizzerias at the minute; here they’re crispy which works really well with the wet and sloppy toppings. The Margate-Rita (£6) was really good value as there was loads of cheese – I hate it when pizzas have more tomato than cheese. It wasn’t bland or boring either...
