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.

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...

I have used this pub/restaurant over many years (30).. it has a fantastic ambience, child friendly, reasonable food, good range of drinks (incl real ales) and not too expensive. BUT, with a few exceptions, the staff are a disgrace... far too fond of personal conversations while customers wait unattended. Have just waited 5 minutes to be served... the bar area... More

First time here, arrived just after 12, the place was empty; first impressions ... the decor and ambiance seemed nice. We were shown to a booth table, in fact we had a choice as i was quiet but took one near to the bar. Staff were friendly, I think that throughout the service we were asked too many times if... More

Had a traditional turkey dinner, sprouts were rock hard and inedible, roast potatoes were hard in middle, food in general was not as warm as should have been, and had a distinct mass produced taste .we had to mention to the staff (...

My husband and I visited here on Sunday for a late lunch with our two dogs. I had the lentil and vegetable soup as a starter which was quite tasty without too much seasoning. My hubby had deep fried brie and cranberry which he said was really nice as well. The main meal is when things started to go down... More

Not been here for about 3 years so we thought we would give it try. The decor's not changed in 3 years and the place looks old and tried. Menu has been reduced as well so we had the chicken fajitas which was over cooked and not much chicken,the steak pie was average and my son had hotdog and chip.... More
