£26 to £40
Vegan

We are the only organic plant-based restaurant in Dorset and the UK’s first Organic Bar to make cocktails with fresh cold-pressed juices. There are no obvious vegan cues and most of our guests don’t even make the connection that the menus is plant-based.

Twelve is defined not by what’s missing but by what it is.

Twelve Eatery is where vegans, vegetarians, pescetarians, flexitarians, omnivores and meat eaters meet to try creative dishes in a good atmosphere with stylish interiors.

We believe great food and good music should be enjoyed by everyone!

    Tasty and reasonably priced home cooked food. Service excellent. Lovely contemporary decor. Could of maybe had a bit more choice on the menu and didn't like that they didn't have menus you had to access it via a barcode. Celebrated our daughters 18th and they brought a cake with a candle. Lovely evening

    Food was good, but I’ve had better. Very expensive for what it was and the ambience was non existent. The only table in the restaurant and quite a long wait for food. Good service and it was nice but we wouldn’t rush back sadly.

    Food was good although ordering wasn’t ideal, had to do it via phone which wasn’t a good process, had to give up and speak to a person which should of happened in the first place. Expensive as well.

    This was our fourth time at Twelve and I'm sorry to say we were quite disappointed. We found the tempura and beer-battered tofu a little bland and lacking any significant flavour. Equally the Feijoada was very inadequate - an inauthentic and rather flavourless bean stew and at £15 it was staggeringly overpriced. Such a shame. The staff were friendly enough but it no longer feels like a "special" place to visit.

    So refreshing to see a restaurant thinking outside of the box from the bog standard food habits menus/recipes. Cruelty free, environmentally friendly, all vegan and sustainable and so tasty. Delicious and nutritious interesting combinations, some I was dubious about but they really worked so well. Professional, prompt service. Great music and ambience. I will definitely visit again. 💖

    Had a very basically meal off the brunch menu. Didn’t have dessert. Drinks are very expensive at £10 for very little amount and weak. It’s all about the garnish, which you can’t eat. It’s clever they can disguise plant based cheese for real cheese but £70 (with gratuity) for soup, sandwich, two drinks, bottle water, tempura vegetables and bruschetta is too much.

    Tables far too close together, was almost sitting in lap of diner on next table. Not good value for money, remember its just veggies?! Husband not impressed with ‘fish’ & chips as had no flavour at all, was just deep fried tofu. Just call it what it is, tofu is tofu! Vegetables deep fried & covered in sauce defeats the object really, unhealthiest veggie meal we have ever eaten …. Service was great but otherwise very underwhelmed unfortunately.

    Food was lovely but just a few things would have made it a better experience. We asked for glass of water each and was given a large litre bottle of water and charged for it. The cutlery was really uncomfortable to use, knives got pointed handles that dug into your hand when trying to cut. Music was way too loud for lunch time.
