      Oh, the email function here is not working at the moment. So the answer is yes, you can come in after 12 because food is served between 12:30 and 1:30 pm. What guests do from 12 to 12:30 is make juice, get coffee or tea and socialize..all of these you can do when you come in. Some guest stay to socialize till 3 pm so no need to rush out.
