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!

Food was excellent and well served by an excellent member of staff, my only observation was the wine list, thought the prices a bit toppy for the restaurant.

A wonderful foodie experience, every dish our party of four were amazed at the level of expertise that went into the food, it really was a taste sensation and reasonably priced too. Will definitely be recommending to everyone and will be back very soon… oh and the cocktails were divine. Fabulous from start to finish!

This is our favourite restaurant, we have been going here since it opened. Why? The food is very creative and absolutely delicious. The cocktails and wines are fantastic. Lovely staff and a wonderful ambiance make for a sublime dining experience. Even my meat eating friends love it. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Thought I'd give Twelve a go as it came out high in Trip advisor and my wife is vegie. Between us we had the burger, mac and cheese and a couple of veg sides. I am a meat eater and I found the burger a genuinely satisfying substitute for beef. The rest was great as well and good helpings. Service and cleanliness was faultless. I'd go back there again.

Food was astonishingly good, from the starter to main course. Cocktails were quite nice too, however we sat next to four very loud ladies who kept shouting and laughing all the way through to the point we couldn’t talk. Music which was quite load didn’t help the situation. For food it’s definitely worth going

Really enjoyed Twelve Eatery. Lovely to find a vegan restaurant that has the feel of a classy, good quality restaurant rather than the usual hippy vibe of most vegan establishments. Food was wonderful and service friendly and welcoming. Great for a special occasion or just an intimate meal for two. Loved it!

The food was great and very unique - some great ideas for plant-based dishes and well executed too.
We had 'salmon' sashimi and 'scallops' starters, linguine and 'steak' for mains with well-cooked hand cut chips, and eton mess and cheesecake for dessert. Everything was delicious and portions were adequate to the prices.
Really interesting non-alcoholic sparkling wine option (kambucha style but more sophisticated).
Our waitress Justyna was very welcoming and attentive.
Somewhat retro decor and slightly trippy music contributed to overally funky atmosphere.
Very clean toilets!

I'd defenitely recommend to vegans as well as meat-eaters like myself who like to try new things.

Will be back.

Let your tongue dance with refined plant-based delicately! Immersed in pink, gold and turquoise colours in the sophisticated interior design of a cosy small restaurant. Enjoy the beating vibe of the triangle like a heartbeat of Bournemouth City.

Such an absolute treat to visit an eatery that has been put together so well.

My partner & I have been together for 7 months and this was our second chance to have a real date night. When we needed to change our sitting time, it was no problem and so personally dealt with.

You feel welcomed into this Miami-esque green & pink delight.
You enjoy the conversation you can have with the incredibly well informed & invested staff members.
You groove along secretly (or not so secretly in our case!) to some silky-basey tunes playing out at just the right level.
AND
You enjoy VEGAN done beautifully, with the perfect mix of flare & complexity but without compromising on look, texture or taste.

We had the 'Salmon' and 'Almond Cheese' to start _ they were both delicious, but the Salmon really deserves a salute to the Chef. Who would think, with a root vegetable :) ?
You've inspired us to explore new foods. Thank you!

We shared a Fish & Chips with a side of Asian Sprouting Broc for mains .. again, a great well put together plate of food and the perfect 'al dente' bits of spicy green. Just Yum! (My 4 year old niece told me my favourite food was broccoli before I even knew it was!)

And we finished off with Dulche De Leche Cheesecake ,,, which was exactly as our lovely server stated it would be ... 'Amazing!'

Thank You for such a lovely evening at your restaurant.
It comes highly recommended from us :)
