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.

Me and my partner went here on Saturday night, the good was amazing! We both ordered a chicken dish and then both enjoyed a yummy dessert. Staff were attentive and place was clean. The only off putting thing was that the tables where we were sat were really close together, so we had a couple at each side of us... More

Stirling is the first town we are visiting in Scotland and we are loving every bit of it including the nice sunny weather therefore you may want to take this review with a pinch of salt. The place is nice and warm and the staff were so nice and welcoming. We couldn't understand 25% of the words but it sounded... More

Situated in a residential area, this pub was super friendly, staff and regulars alike. Ample outdoor seating, and cozy indoor front. Fun pub quiz. Food ok.

Popped in here for an evening meal. Place was very busy. Food is pub grub but I feel that the menu needs an upgrade if it wants to style itself as a restaurant. Main gripe- the staff were over attentive! Now normally it is the lack of attentive staff that puts you off a place. However, with no waitress dedicated... More

Birds and the Bees was recommended by our host at the B&B. The restaurant did not disappoint. It was within about 3/4 of a mile from our B&B. The walk is lovely and the food is scrumptious. There is also a nice bar as well. The view inside is elegant and the view outside is awesome. Its tucked back behind... More

Booked to visit the Birds and Bees after graduation. Had a three course meal all reasonably priced, shown to a cosy table - slightly dark interior but it does suit the building. The food was good Haggis to start was well cooked and presented. The main course of Chilli was slightly bland (hence four stars) but was a large portion,... More

Visited with the family and it was just perfect. I had the fajitas and they were delicious, lots of it too, the waiter didn't mind me asking for extra wraps either. Husband had a chicken dish which he said was fantastic, again more than enough! The kids had chicken nuggets each, both plates were clean when they finished. The surroundings... More

Booked as a group for dinner following graduation.The service was terribly slow and we were left for ages with dirty plates on our tables which were only cleared when we asked a passing waiter to clear them. Food was ok but the sides of veg were not. It took so long to serve 2 courses we gave up on dessert... More
