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!

    I came to twelve eatery not realising it was a vegan restaurant but being really enjoying the burger. Servers were friendly and attentive. If I had to find something to complain about I'd say the mac n cheese wasn't great, but I understand it's bot the easiest vegan dish to make good. Overall happy with the experience.

    Four adults dined here, two are vegetarian and two are trying to eat less meat and more plant based food. The food was amazing, full of flavour and beautifully presented. Service was very attentive. We were sat in the front of the restaurant which I felt was the best area to sit in as the rear part felt quite enclosed and the noise level was quite loud but there was a big group dining in that part so that would be why. Overall if you’re vegetarian or vegan or just curious about not eating meat then this place can’t help to impress.

    This was our second time here; this time around it was to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The cocktails were so moreish that we had two each, and the food was fantastic. The owner came over and chatted a few times - a lovely guy. This is our favourite restaurant out of all the restaurants we've been to, and we will be back again, and again, and again.

    An incredible evening was had. As a vegan it’s a little unsettling to read things like ‘ribeye’ or ‘salmon’ on a menu but after a very pleasant chat with the owner, who described the way the dishes were created, it became a real voyage of discovery.

    What a wonderful meal. Booked twelve eatery for our wedding anniversary evening out. The food was outstanding as was the service. The noise level in the restaurant wasn’t really loud but you know how it is in a room full of people eating and chatting. There’s no dress code, most people were just dressed casually but of course you can dress up if if you wanted to. A lovely relaxed atmosphere with wonderful food with service to match. Will definitely be going back. Thanks for a great evening.

    The food is well prepared and very tasty. We had the teriyaki tofu, twelve burger and vegan schnitzel and all are recommended. The restaurant itself is a nice space with pleasing decor. Staff were attentive and knowledgeable. Would recommend to anyone who wanted some fine dining without the cruelty to animals!

    Booked as a celebration for anniversary, service was very welcoming and prompt. We had the T-bone steak with sides of green veg chips and mushrooms all of which was very tasty. Would recommend as a great restaurant to have a plant based meal

    Absolutely outstanding food and a lovely environment to spend a special birthday lunch. Everything we ordered was served with a professional attitude, a warm smile and a charming, friendly outlook. I can totally recommend the apricot lager, oh and the cheesecake, wow, what a treat for the senses. The price was very good too. Definitely would go again with more friends as I know they would all love the playlist!

    Lovely food, did not have to wait long at all. Helpful and friendly staff, a good experience and brilliant to find a vegan restaurant. I did not like the fact that there wasn't a menu and that you have to use your phone to scan a disc on the table. Much prefer to read a proper menu, phones aren't ideal to get the whole feel of the place. Very expensive drinks, coke 4.50! May as well stick to the alcohol!
