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.

My husband and daughter took me for my mother's day lunch and I can safely say the food was absolutely delicious. We come here regularly and have never had poor service or a bad meal. Staff are always polite and helpful and our friends little boys love the iron sheep at the door. Keep up the good work :-)

I would like to highly recommend the Birds and Bees to any looking for a venue to have a family gathering or small function. This was a great venue to celebrate our daughters wedding, attention to detail was superb, the food was amazing and the service wonderful. We were offered an amazing menu choice and could even make some suggestions... More

The food was good and good value and as a testament to this the place was crowded. Staff were friendly and although very busy they managed to be attentive. Food was fresh and presented nicely, tables were clean and fresh. Value for money.

Been at the birds and the bees for lunch, coffee and dinner. It's a great, cosy pub which we often visit as they are dog friendly.

Our family of five came here on Boxing Day for lunch with high expectations as we have always said this was our favourite family restaurant. However we were very disappointed with the quality of the food. On previous visits we have loved it, the atmosphere, the staff, the location especially the wonderful home cooked food.... Amazing rice pudding. We discovered... More

Having eaten here previously and attended various functions, and having always been impressed, we decided to have our wedding reception/party here in June 2013 (we got married in Gretna Green and wanted to have a party for family and friends).
