Splendid respite from house hunting

My darling wife had spotted this little gem on the internet and so we planned in advance to enjoy a spot of lunch here while we were house hunting in Stirling. It was the decor that attracted me, I love a traditional pub and this place absolutely nails it: with the additional bonus of some... read more

Decided to try something different recently so headed to birds and bees after hearing people speak highly of it. Unfortunately I cannot do the same. Food was ok, nothing spectacular. However, service was brutal. Left waiting for about ten minutes at bar to pay. Staff were speaking over us to each other. Disappointed.

Went for a meal with family last week; the food was very tasty, I had fish and chips which was a good sized portion and nice tartare sauce served on a wee side dish. Great atmosphere and a great selection of soft drinks, real ales, wines etc. Love coming here for a meal and drinks, the tables outside are also... More

This used to be a great restaurant, ribs, steaks, a good gastro pub. However the menu is just a normal find in any pub style. Service is slow and on the day of our last visit a smell of urine, was throughout the restaurant area. Kids menu is ok and well priced, But as I said the adult menu is... More

Maybe we were unlucky but the second visit was no where near as good as the first. My companion found a rather large insect in his starter, which the waiter took away rather quickly. We should have left then as it didn't get better. I won't be back

Unique atmosphere in a more remote residential area...cows in the field directly across from the restaurant! We had reservations for 9 people and were told we would have 2 hours at the table before the next reservation. We did arrive a few minutes late (10 minutes) and were seated and ordered drinks promptly. Service a bit slow, drinks were finished... More

Had dinner here with my husband on a recent trip to Scotland. This is an interesting building with an interesting history, unusual décor, good service, and great food. We each enjoyed a delicious steak, onion rings, French fries, vegetables, and sticky toffee pudding. A wonderful meal and a good time. Highly recommend.

We used the Birds and the Bees for a post wedding party, approx 80 people. We hired the function room. The service was first class throughout the organising, nothing was a problem. On the day we had a BBQ, although the Scottish weather tried to spoil that, and the food was amazing. For the per person price there was a... More
