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!

    On holiday for a week, popped in here after booking for an anniversary dinner, not plant based and can safely say best plant based food we have eaten in a restaurant. Staff were lovely. If we lived round here we would be back often.

    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!

    Food rather bland and overpriced. Rather lacking imagination as it tries to reproduce non vegan food. Burger was sloppy & lacked flavour. The strange powdered coconut and spice mix (?) that accompanied the bean stew added nothing to the flavour.

    Booked this restaurant as we were visiting Bournemouth for 1 night. I've been a vegetarian for over 40 years, therefore have quite alot of experience in eating and cooking veggie food. Somewhere I read (it turns out it was on their own website) than they claim to be The fifth Best Vegan restaurant, in THE WORLD! Quite who decided to give this accolade I wonder, I could find no other such rankings on the web. Anyway we arrived in what can only be described as a 'colourful' part of town, ie down town student land, which is probably great if you are a student. But not so inviting otherwise. On to the 'restaurant' which is really more of a cafe. lively and colourful enough. The menu consisted of 4 options, Burger, Noodles, Pasta and a bean stew. Not exactly ground breaking for the Fifth Best Vegan restaurant in the WORLD. The food was edible but uninspiring, I've had far better in a high street takeaway or an average pub. To to sum up, the prices are high and the food was pretty average. What all the other vegan restaurants below number 5 serve up I can only dread to think.

    Twelve is a wonderful vegan restaurant. Hopefully, we caught Twelve on a so-so evening. Having been to Twelve many times before, this time we felt there was a lack of genuine care in us as customers. 2 text reminders asking for a response on the day of the booking? Smartphone Menu system is good. Food good, perhaps a little pricey, but menu does not seem to have changed much in years. Staff including owner seemed a little disinterested. Twelve is a wonderful vegan restaurant, so don’t let this review put you off going.

    Liked the initial atmosphere and decor when we arrived. Was recommended the carbonara me and two of my friends all ordered it. Was very average food just tasted like it hadn’t been seasoned very bland. There truffle chips was nice though. Wasn’t very impressed with the cocktails either. Good service from the staff. Overpriced for what we had.

    Twelve is one of the friendliest, most welcoming restaurants around. The food is never anything less than excellent and one does not need to be vegan to enjoy it, which cannot be said of all vegan places, sadly. The menu is extensive and offers a wide variety so there is something to suit everyone. There are also various specials and additional menu items that are every bit as good as the main selection. I would recommend Twelve to vegans and non-vegans alike (and have, many times in the past), and cannot say enough about my experiences there.

    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
