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 our first dinner in Scotland at the Birds and Bees. The service was lacking for sure (not very timely), but the food definitely made up for it. I would eat there again. This restaurant is a little off the beaten path. It is not close to the downtown area, which we liked. The food is local, with healthy... More

We had booked for 3.00pm, did not leave restaurant until 6.00pm. Service was terrible. Had to wait 1 hour to get main course. Food was bland. Had nachos with cheese to start. Cheese was tasteless. Worst starter I have had

Visited this reastaurants today. Very long visit!! Staff came to table for our order quite quickly. A full hour later we had to ask where our food was. The barman said he would find out how long the kitchen would be. 15 minutes later we debated leaving but again asked where food was. Barman checked and said it was being... More

We had a lovely lunch here today...efficient and friendly service and we all enjoyed our meal very much. My haddock was excellent, very fresh fish and the batter was perfect and not greasy. The chips and minty mushy peas were very good too. It is a lovely cosy place to go and I would definitely recommend...one of the best lunches... More

Am a local to the Birds and the Bees and while we have visited later at night for dinner, we've recently been there late afternoon. Top barman Gaz always makes an effort to find the preferred bottle of wine (Sospiro) even though it's not on the normal wine list. Great service and very comfortable atmosphere.

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.
