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.

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

A wonderful eating house. The food is reasonably priced and excellent quality. I do enjoy just one pint of ale before the meal. I chose the Bird & Bees own brew. BIG BIG MISTAKE....Absolute dross. ..which detracted from the overall experience. Shoot the head brewer NOW !!!!

Took a stab in the dark to have a nice pub meal. Customer service was attentive and friendly. Good selection on the menu which also showed vegetarian and gluten free choices. Chose the Chicken Ecosse with Mash. It was the best meal I have had since I can remember, if it wasn't for the limits of my stomach size, I... More

Busy restaurant close to downtown but right on the edge of farmland. We sat on the patio in daylight at 10 pm. Viewed the sunset over hills and farm fields. Pleasant service and good food. We would go back if in Stirling.

B&b have always been a very family friendly restaurant and bar. I have attended functions, had lunches and dinners and never been disappointed. If I have ever had an issue, it has been resolved promptly and met with a great attitude. Food is homely, staff are Always super friendly and helpful.

Staff are a joy and the meal was fantastic and served right on time. The Bar has a nice friendly atmosphere and even let me bring my dog in earlier in... More

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
