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 visited as a party of 12 for a colleagues leaving lunch. We pre-ordered the day before by email to save time as this was all in our lunch break and this works really well I had the macaroni and a portion of chips (usually comes with garlic bread instead) it was delicious!! I can't wait to go back and... More

This was the venue for my office Christmas lunch. We booked in advance and got a good price for a 3 course lunch. The service was quick, the food was really good and there was plenty of it.

We arrived about 2pm and were welcomed and seated. We chose from the very varied menu. Our food arrived quickly, pate for George and brie wedges for me. Both were delicous. This was followed by steak pie for George and chicken satay for me. Two courses were more than enough for lunchtime. The service was prompt and friendly. The manager... More

Normally service for customers and regulars is second to none but today being charged an exorbitant amount for a pint of soda water and lime for a driver really was beyond the pale. As a regular who normally enjoys friendly service and a welcoming and professional attitude I feel very let down. I don't know whether or not I will... More

Went for a family meal in the afternoon on Christmas Eve. We had booked in advance so no trouble being seated. Staff very attentive, despite the fact that it was extremely busy and fully booked throughout. Never felt rushed and the food was delicious, all three courses!!! Would certainly recommend and will definitely be back again.

Always book in advance because it fills very quickly. The food is great and the staff is nice. Had several dishes and was only disappointed with one, too spicy.

There is nothing nicer on a cold miserable winter's day than knowing you will be lunching in the Birds and Bees and this visit did not let us down. The food was very tasty and delivered to the table in no time at all (as usual) The service, as always, was delivered in a professional friendly manner. Thank you Gary... More

We booked in advance as we had arranged a trip from Edinburgh to Stirling to visit castle, town and to walk our mini schnauzer (lovely walk around castle/town walls). It was a little odd to have to pay £10 per head as a deposit but it was December and a Saturday and it's the party season. Arrived at 5pm, a... More
