TWELVE EATERY

£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!

Easily the best food in Bournemouth, the place to bring non-vegans to show them how amazing vegan food can be.

Amazing restaurant. Five star food and with a great selection of dishes (all plant based). Complemented by very attentive and friendly staff. We had the burger and seafood linguine, both of which were delicious. We had such a good dinner there, we actually ended up going back for breakfast the next morning, which was equally as good. The only negative is that we don't live in Bournemouth so we'll have to wait a while before we can return.

Excellent customer service - couldn't do enough for us when we had to wait for our table to come available. Such friendly and helpful staff. Felt very safe with the whole 'COVID' protection set up. Starters were amazing. We loved the food. Plan to take some other friends there soon.

Delicious and exciting plant based menu. We had scallops, seafood linguine, cheesecake, and more all vegan and really tasty. Something different if you want to take a break from the usual restaurant food. Healthy and protein filled meals so need for any guilt the next day!

We absolutely loved our visit to Twelve. The service is very friendly, efficient but relaxed. Food was outstanding, as a long term sufferer of the standard risotto/vegan burger offerings at pubs and restaurants, Twelve really raises the bar and shows that it is possible to serve a variety of plant based dishes and for it to be incredibly tasty. Can't wait to go back!

First time going to Twelve Eatery. I went with my partner, mother and grandma as two of us are vegetarian.

We were all blown away by the atmosphere, the service and of course the food, which you wouldn’t believe was all vegan!

My first ever vegan meal with vegan mocktails - it was great!
Service was warm and welcoming. The watermelon mocktail was so yummy. And the tempura started was utterly delicious.
We were there for an informal business lunch with a vegan guest, and he very much enjoyed his meal.
We will be back to try the vegan cocktails 🍹 when we aren’t driving!

As usual the food was amazing as was the service. The seafood linguine was probably the best vegan thing I have ever had. I live 130 miles away but when we come to Bournemouth we book our accommodation as close to this restaurant as possible. Cannot wait to go back!

Fantastic food and really generous portions. Limited menu but a bit of everything for those new to veganism too.
Super friendly service though a little slow.

Everything about our evening at Twelve was wonderful. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. Where we usually have one or two vegan choices on a menu it was amazing to have a fully plant based menu. We will definitely be back!!

This was the first time we had eaten at a (vegan) plant based restaurant and everything was a delight from the food to the wine and the staff. Daisy was lovely and great at recommendations and Greg, one of the owners was very friendly and helpful in explaining about the foods. The Konjac 'salmon' sashimi was outstanding and the burger was also good as was the Feijoada. Will definitely be back!

We were welcomed and seated quickly, our pre dinner drinks arrived quickly. The food is incredible with plenty of choice, the menu is very descriptive but if you have questions the servers are very familiar with the menu. The food always looks beautiful and thoughtfully presented. It is so tasty with lots of different options. It’s so nice to know you can choose anything as it’s all plant based.

The staff are always great in this pretty and stylish little vegan restaurant. Imaginative and gorgeous-looking cocktails. My only negative comment is that some of the dishes we find are slightly too intense... the sauces a bit too strong. Have noticed this a few times. Also maybe some changes to the menu - it often seems much the same every time.. but overall I'd totally recommend it :) and do!

We are not vegan but the restaurant was recommended to us and didn't disappoint, lovely different food. Only slight issue was the waitress said to ask any questions but when we did the d she was rather sharp, slightly spoilt the evening but would highly recommend if vegan or not. Also good for gf
