We are 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, for us it's all about organic and sustainability! 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!

We accidentally stumbled on this restaurant whilst wandering around because we couldn't get a seat in any of the town centre eateries...I'm so glad we found it! We had wonderful cocktails to start - original, beautifully presented and delicious. The main courses were simply stunning....The veggie "seafood" linguini was utterly delicious. My daughter had "fish & chips" (tofu) which she raved about. Desert (eton mess & cheesecake) were equally wonderful. I should mention that my daughter is vegetarian, I'm not & wouldn't normally chose veggie or vegan food. COVID hygiene was to a high standard - the table & seats were very thoroughly cleaned before we were seated. All in all, a wonderful dining experience - very highly recommended.More

WoW WoW I am not a vegan but my daughters are and I like to try new things. I was in the area for my daughters graduation and wanted a special meal, not a vegan choice of 2 things as the rest of the group...were meat eaters. I suppose what intigued me here is these are dishes I would have in a meat restuarant. Scallops.....okay so the texture is different but the smell, taste was very close. Burger.....I prefer my medium rare so this is more chargrilled. Frankly I didn't care as it was so good. Cocktails...where do we start...so many lovely flavours and healthy. Okay its not cheap but you get what you pay for. Lovely restaurant. Great Service. Give it a try...even if you are not vegan. I wouldn't hesitate to go back and the other non-vegans in the group agreed!More

This is an amazing experience. We went for my birthday and were served interesting and delicious cocktails and amazing food. My meat eating boyfriend even loved it and I was blown away by the food, which they clearly work so hard to produce and develop....I can't wait to return. The staff were excellent too, so friendly. Great business model and brilliant service. Go and see!More

Outstanding restaurant. The food, service, interior are all excellent. I would recommend them to anyone, vegan or not. The cheesecake is the best desert we've ever had!

Best place in Bournemouth. Been here a day or two and struggling to find independent, a little different, fab places to eat - however this place nails it. Vibe, food and service. The team were beyond top rate and whatever sauce was on the “scallops”...I could have easily ordered a glass and drank it. Will definitely be back 🙋🏼‍♀️More

Brilliant food, exceptional drinks. Couldn’t fault! Lots of vegan adaptations - quirky takes on classics (loved the mushroom “scallops”!).

We’ve dined here a couple of times now, it would be more but we’re not local. Every time we have, the menu and the service has just keeps improving. For the food this time I had the ‘Seafood’ Linguini and my wife had the B-Twelve...Burger, both of which were just so full of flavour, and nice sized portions also. The dessert menu has also changed since our last visit.. I opted to try the Summer Eton Mess and my wife predictably chose the Dulce Du Leche cheesecake (which, the recipe, we were told has been improved upon). The Summer Eton Mess was delicious, the merengue was light. The Dulce Du Leche cheesecake looked amazing, I tried a mouthful and agreed with my wife that the ginger biscuit base has improved this dessert. Overall, this restaurant really does deliver when it comes to menu and service, they are very friendly and attentive and clearly to want ensure every client leaves impressed with the experience. During our stay in the area we tried several restaurants, one considerable more expensive than Twelve and none compared, not even close. If you haven’t tried Twelve yet (or Vegan), book a table, you won’t be disappointed.More

It was my first time and I had a great meal with my pal. Anne was our waiter and she was a pleasure. The tofu fish and chips was spectacular. The burger was really shined, I was surprised with the cheese especially as it was...cheesie and acted as cheese should. Defiantly get the bacon bits on it, makes the difference big time.More

Everything about our dining experience was exceptional - from the fragrant smells that tickled our noses, to the server's friendly greeting that warmed our hearts, to the flavours - such flavours! - that tantalised our taste buds. We had two vegetarians, one coeliac and a...meat eating gourmand among us. The four dishes we each ordered were simply delicious, and no one missed the meat or dairy at all. Highly recommended.More

The Truffle Parmesan chips were better than the Ivy and that’s a high bar. The burgers and toppings were fantastic. My wife had the coconut cheesecake and says it is one of the best she has ever had (and she is a great baker) The...service was outstanding from all staff from the greeting to the departure. We live 270 miles away from this resto and it’s the second time we have visited it. It will be a first choice from now on. Even the toilet ares smell clean and welcoming , just like Maldivian spa. Every aspect of the client experience has been thought through. In summary, first class.More
