TWELVE EATERY

4.9
345 reviews
£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!

Always great service and great food whenever I visit! Everyone is really friendly and food is really good quality. I was pretty gutted that the new menu doesn't have as many gf options anymore. On the mains there are only 2 gf options, there used to be much more variety. Gutted the tofu and chips and teriyaki noodles aren't on the menu anymore and that the cheesecake is no longer gf :( Still a great place to visit for a special occasion just not enough gf options for me.

I was treated to a birthday meal and it was delicious.
Not a vegan myself but always up for trying new foods I was delighted with the breakfast.

The service was outstanding and it was lovely that we could chat without loud music.

Would highly recommend eating here.

Lovely vegetarian cuisine. Excellent service from the waiter who was very informative and guided us through the menu. Our dishes were nicely cooked and presented. The restaurant was clean with screens between each table. An enjoyable lunchtime experience.

Always my favourite place to go with friends! Tried the plant steak for the first time and was not disappointed! The dulce de leche cheesecake is the best thing you will ever taste - vegan or not!!

We were so impressed with the delicious food at Twelve Eatery. It can sometimes feel strange or unnecessary when plant based places create faux meat, but Twelve Eatery are doing it in a very experimental way that seems to be more about finding new and interesting ways of creating different textures and tastes from plants. The flavours of each dish we tried were delicious. Also great service, good music and beautiful decor!

Had an absolutely stunning meal. Perfect in every way. How could that starter not be salmon? Having tried most of the mains before we went for a selection of starters and sides. Highly recommended. Left properly stuffed but still not feeling bloated. Plant-based fine dining doesn't come finer than this!

Not impruwiyh what I had. Rather greasy battered tofu which was undercooked and slimy. Starter of veg terrine was ok.
Hard surfaces so quite noisy

Quite simply amazing food. I’m a certified carnivore but I would not have known the Burger was plant based. Not just that, but one of the best burgers I be had full stop! (Either meat or plant based) Service matches (and exceeds) that of some of the best restaurants I have been to in the World!

Showcases delicious plant based food in a laid back environment.
Shows that vegan food doesn’t have to be all about burgers and hot dogs, this was a modern refined menu that had something for everybody.
Great staff, super friendly and helpful. Will be back.
