Decided to call in with a friend and my dog for a late lunch/early. We were seated in the bar area which has a fantastic atmosphere and charming decor. We were ordered drinks and handed menus and then forgotten about. For about half an hour. Which was very disappointing. However. The birds and the bees is a great place for... More

Lovely meal, I had tuna salad, it was massive. We waited over an hour from ordering to our food arriving but pleased when it came. The staff were very apologetic and sincere. Worth a visit.

Always great food to be had here. Service is not rushed and you have plenty of time to dine. Really cost and quite unique place which caters for all.

This restaurant was so good (service and food) that we went twice. Loved the ambiance and even the Ayrshire cow hides on the booth seats. Our food both nights was absolutely delicious! If in Stirling ....you must give this try!

The food here is incredible. Freshly cooked, well presented and full of flavour. Reasonably priced too. However service is very aloof. We sat with empty plates for over 20 minutes with servers walking past is ignoring us completely. We even put our card out on the table to signal we were ready to pay, but had to ask someone who...

Visited here to meet friends for lunch with our kids. The staff were very attentive and helpful. We were made to feel welcome and the staff very patient with our 5 kids. The food was good honest pub grub. Big portions and very tasty, the kids also loved their food. I'd definitely return if heading back to Stirling.

We held our retirement party at Birds and Bees (Lomond Room) - 45 guests for BBQ buffet with private bar and dancing. We were looked after royally. Fergus and Gary helped plan every detail and were wonderfully responsive to all our needs. Our guests were delighted with the buffet - excellent quality in food and the chef added many extras...

We were able to walk here from our B&B, only a short 10 min walk, mainly thru a residential neighborhood. We were seated right away and ordered our drinks from a wide selection of beers. They were very good. Our food was very tasty...no complaints from us, and the service was prompt and friendly.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. We did have to take a 10min cab ride but it was worth it. Mushroom soup was delicious as was the roasted chicken dish we had. A little too much pepper for my liking but none the less excellent. Atmosphere is pleasant and inviting Really happy we visited. Service was excellent... More

Loved this place in terms of ambience and atmosphere and decor. Food was good but array of beers, ales and alcohol was brilliant.

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.
