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.

I have had several recommendations to visit this place but have not had the opportunity until now. The continuing lovely autumn weather tempted us to take our vintage car out for a spin before winter closes in. We visited the Kelpies at Grangemouth and decided to press on here to have a meal. We arrived about 5.00 PM to find... More

First meal in the Bees since the 1980's and even better than it was back then - no mean feat. Far larger inside the bar courtesy of an extension, with a larger section as a dedicated restaurant. The sheep, milk churns and stalls are still there. The food was plentiful and of good quality. The young Irish barmaid was helpful... More

Having last visited the B&B's when I was a student some 20 years ago, I was delighted when I returned in August 2014 to see that very little had changed. The food was good, the beer was fine (ok, it was Deuchar's plus something else - bit overpriced though), and the sheep were still available to sit on in the... More

I looked at the menu online, and I have to say- I'm always a bit worried when I see fajitas, nachos, mussels, steak, thai curry, fish and chips etc all on the same menu. I have to say, I was proved wrong....mostly. The atmosphere is good and the staff v friendly. Everything is cooked fresh, and my seabass from the... More

Lovely decor, atmosphere and 6 of us ate here with everyone happy ( chicken with haggis in a whiskey sauce was amazing). The staff were attentive and friendly. Would definitely go again.

This is a nice friendly pub with good food at reasonable prices. Child friendly too. Although not out of this world food it was all freshly cooked and piping hot. The chicken burger was the only let down ever so slightly due to it being quite dry chicken. Service was prompt and professional. If you like a bit of space... More

We booked a table to celebrate a friend's birthday, after quite a few bad experiences at a more local pub - we were all really glad we did. The food was excellent, a really good selection on the menu and all six of us were happy with our choices. The service was attentive and quick, in all a lovely Saturday... More

We just got married on 15th Aug and chose this as our venue as there was just 13 guests. We had it privately as it was in the courtyard lounge which was very nice. We did not have a set menu as we chose to eat off the main menu as we have eaten here before and there is a... More

we used to be regular customers at birds and bees and whilst it is still a great pub and restaurant the wait for your order to come has got longer and longer over the last two years resulting in we don't bother to eat there anymore which is a shame as the food is really good
