An award winning restaurant situated in the green and pleasant village of Causewayhead in Stirling, The Birds and The Bees is a dining room built around a passion for food. Located in an old one story whitewashed farmstead, The Birds and The Bees proudly displays its rusticity, with cartwheels on the outside walls, a choice of two beer gardens and exposed brick and open fires aplenty inside. The result is a cosy and warm, the lighting kept low and an eclectic mix of old and new decorative touches providing character and a talking point too. As an informal wine-bar and bistro, The Birds and The Bees has an informal atmosphere matched by the menu, a tempting collection of dishes both locally and internationally influenced, all using locally sourced produce wherever possible. The kitchen staff really care about the food they���re cooking, evidenced by not only the high level of flavour in their homecooked dishes but also in the careful, attractive presentation of every plate. Drink options include a great many carefully selected wines as well as excellent ales and lagers on tap.

We visited the Birds & Bees after it was recommended to us on 22nd July. We hadn't booked a table but were warmly greeted. The menu choice is very good and when the food came it was delicious and plentiful. The service was great and the prices reasonable. All in all a very good time was had by all.

We booked our table for 7.30, got told to sit at the bar for 5 min while they got our table ready. It came to 8pm and my partner asked the woman about our table, she claimed she had forgotten about us and we would get a round of drinks on the house. We sat down and ordered a starter... More

Four of us went on Saturday evening to this restaurant and enjoyed our meal so much that we went back to following evening. The food was good, plenty of choice and the staff were friendly, efficient and welcoming.

This bar and restaurant was just down the street from our B&B (Springfield Lodge Bed and Breakfast) and was a suggestion from our host, Kevin. We were able to walk to the Birds and the Bees in about five minutes. First night we sat in the restaurant area, the second night in the bar area. Both nights we enjoyed our... More

... Too bad you may need to wait along time to get. I am not sure if our wait time was a function of it being the St. Andrews Open and unexpected crowds or how this always is. But given how hungry I wanted my food faster. But given how good the food was, I would return when not on... More

Start off by saying that I've been here a number of times and each time I've never been let down by the standard of food in this hideaway restaurant. Would have been a 5 rating If there was more selection available on the menu, but then the dishes they do have are done to a high enough standard. Great little... More

We found this place completely by chance... our route back into Stirling to find a restaurant was blocked by roadworks and we were desperately trying to find a route around the works by using our GPS when we passed by the BIrds and Bees which had a lot of vehicles parked outside and had a very pleasing exterior. Lots of... More

We've been here a few times while visiting family but i haven't written a review yet. The food in the restaurant is lovely but you can equally get some nice bar and snack food and eat outside or in the bar area such as burgers, nachos, chips etc. It isn't cheap to drink here but it is nice for a...

We had been out all morning and arrived after 1.30pm. They had had two coach parties in and a graduation party but were able to find us a table almost immediately.
