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.

Lovely atmosphere and food

Lovely atmosphere you can sit in the old pens (booths) where the animals used to sleep. Can be a little expensive but a nice treat.

This is a 'country farm' themed pub, with dining tables arranged in stalls in a cosy way. The service was friendly, prompt and attentive. The menu was very varied, so its a good choice of venue for a group of people. Food quality was average to good but over-priced for what you get.

Have been here a few times as my brother lives nearby and it's handy, but it's also quite good. Reasonably priced pub grub, which is slightly above average quaility. I've had a couple of different starters and 4 or 5 different mains over the last few years and all bar one (see below) have been tasty and reasonably priced -... More

This is a very pleasant old fashioned pub which has a good food menu. We had the mussels which were great and the chicken and haggis with whisky cream sauce which was very nice but rich. I definitely felt I ate too much! Service was very attentive and friendly. Definitely recommend.

Visited on Saturday evening when it was very busy, however the food was excellent and the service was good. We had a wee while to wait on our meal but only the length of time you would expect and when the food arrived it was really good. I would recommend booking a table if you intend to come here on...
