Amongst the mains, discover slow-cooked blade of beef with mash and roasted purple carrot, grilled hake with buttered spinach, steamed mussels and chive velouté, or sweet potato and spinach risotto with an onion bhaji.

Twelve Blackpool epitomises contemporary chic, with exposed brick walls, wooden flooring, and chic white furniture. With pop art prints and casual seating, the laid-back bar area serves up a range of timelessly elegant cocktails.

A glamorous seaside retreat, Twelve restaurant inLancashire is just a 5-minute drive from the coast. Central Blackpool is 20 minutes away.

    This restaurant is simply amazing! The staff are professional, polite and know the very detail of the menu in order to give advice/help when needed. In terms of Covid, on entry you have to sanitise (or wash) your hands and there is a great system in place for the toilets which means only one person may enter at a time. The tables were well spaced, but this did not lose any of the atmosphere. We felt very "safe" in the building; a great credit to the team. The food was just gorgeous! I started with the black pudding scotch egg, then had the beef cheek for main, followed by the cookie and ice cream for dessert. All were cooked to perfection. My friend had the chicken liver pate, then duck for main and salted caramel tart for dessert. Again all were delicious. I'd highly recommend this restarant!

    This is the first time we've visited Twelve in a long time and we don't know why, because it's the best restaurant around for miles. We came for my sons 22nd birthday. The last time he came with us was when he was about 10 and being a fussy eater all he wanted was ice cream! He sat playing on his game boy throughout the meal and just waited patiently for his dessert, the staff didn't mind at all. We didn't take him again but me and hubby have visited many times since. On Sunday was his first proper experience of Twelve and they didn't disappoint, the service was brilliant and we sat at a safe distance from other diners, the food was delicious. I had the roast beef, it was so tender and cooked to perfection. My son enjoyed his 2 course meal, he had no room for ice cream! Will definitely visit more often

    Once again Twelve didn’t fail to deliver, the food was absolutely fantastic. Roast beetroot soup was delicious, as was the pork. Twelve has a well thought out system to ensure customer safety. Excellent staff great service.

    Excellent food, excellent service in a very comfortable setting. Sunday lunch menu highly recommended and children's menu also very good - real chicken nuggets! Booking on line easy and room to write any queries.
