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.

Me and my partner have eaten here on a few occasions, it is our choice of restaurant for 'date night' as we call it, service is always great and food is never disappointing. Weekends seem to be fairly busy but we normally come on a midweek evening and normally is a table available for us. But I would recommend booking... More

Booked a table for half an hour later and was seated in the bar area(as they had a group arriving). Waiter was a bit slow to attend to us as the... More

My husband and I had a love lunch here today in the sun. There were ample tables outside to make the most of this gorgeous weather we have just now. Food was tasty and service was good. The only criticism I have is that the tables are very close together which made it difficult to get the pram to the... More

Nice welcome, nice décor, nice staff. Food is acceptable, but not great. The menu reminds of the Inn at Torbrex. I do wonder if they are related....

traditional bar lunch, huge portions and attentive service. Nice place with a relaxed feel. Off the beaten track but worth finding.

Three of us arrived for lunch and we were seated straight away. Food was great only thing that let the restaurant down was the toilets which needed a good clean and were rather smelly .
