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 are forced to find a refuge every Friday night whilst my daughter is at the local performing arts centre. The Birds and Bees is the haven we have found. It is welcoming, the food is great and the beer keeps my husband busy - choosing what to try. My favourite is the sticky toffee pudding with ice cream. Its... More

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
