Description: 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.

Went for boxing day dinner with the family, as we have done for the last 3 years. Had a traditional turkey dinner, sprouts were rock hard and inedible, roast potatoes were hard in middle, food in general was not as warm as should have been, and had a distinct mass produced taste .we had to mention to the staff (...

My husband and I visited here on Sunday for a late lunch with our two dogs. I had the lentil and vegetable soup as a starter which was quite tasty without too much seasoning. My hubby had deep fried brie and cranberry which he said was really nice as well. The main meal is when things started to go down... More

Not been here for about 3 years so we thought we would give it try. The decor's not changed in 3 years and the place looks old and tried. Menu has been reduced as well so we had the chicken fajitas which was over cooked and not much chicken,the steak pie was average and my son had hotdog and chip.... More

Great wee pub/restaurant that serves homemade food and a nice selection of beers! Friendly staff and you can bring the dog into the bar area which is a bonus!

Close to the University / Bridge of Allen, with a good range of food and drink. The food is of good quality and well presented. Interior is nicely quirky - with real sheep stools! Overall a good place for lunch at a fair price

This was our second visit here. The first time was for a wedding reception, which went very well and I think everyone enjoyed. Anyway, this time we booked it for a family gathering of about 14 people and again, we had an excellent experience. The menu was pretty good pub grub fare, ranging from steak pie to fajitas to curry... More

Attend a group meeting at this pub every month. Good atmosphere and good service. Private function rooms and outside game area in the back. You need to know it is there. It is not a place where you would normally expect to find a pub.
