£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!

    It was our first time at Twelve eatery, both of us are meat eaters still we did not feel we were missing out not having meat that evening. The food cooked to perfection, loads of flavours. Cocktail’s are spot on. We will be back definitely.

    We came for a family meal out with an age range of between 22 and 85. As a group of six we consisted of one vegan, one vegetarian and the others who eat meat. We all enjoyed our meals - lovely flavours and excellent presentation. Tables were beautifully laid but also has an informal feel so felt very comfortable. Menu is quite small (but has daily specials) but to me that’s a bonus as there was something there to please all of us. Drinks menu was also good - had some nice non- alcoholic alternatives if you are driving. Once we logged onto restaurant Wi- Fi we had no problem looking at menu on our phones and there was also a tablet provided. All in all I would definitely recommend TwelveEatery to people who are vegans or are open to trying plant based meals once in a while.

    Food was incredible and the service was excellent - we were running a little late and phoned ahead to inform the restaurant they were very friendly despite this and incredible patient when we arrived and didn’t exactly know what we wanted! For context we were a group of 5 on a Friday night. My only issue was perhaps the portion sizes could have been a little larger given the price, but for an occasional ‘event’ where you want to go somewhere a bit special you couldn’t ask for a better venue!

    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.

    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.
