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 had fish and chips with salad and cheesecake for dessert. The fish was crispy, the salad fresh. One of the best cheesecakes I have had. Very relaxed atmosphere and a welcoming staff. Great for groups. It isn't in a location where you would just wander upon it.

We were not impressed. The prices were high for the quality of food. The people were very nice and the restaurant had a nice atmosphere. Not sure we will return.

Whenever I'm around Stirling I venture here. Food is quality and service good with real, unequaled Scottish charm. Lovely views from the dining room across the fields of Bridge of Allan. Great place!
