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.

“Family get together”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Great atmosphere, good food, wide choice on menu.Our family lives in Fife and Glasgow so the Birds and Bees is a good venue for us to meet at. We have visited at least twice and really enjoyed a leisurely Sunday lunch. We would like to visit in Summer so we can sit outside for lunch.

Reviewed November 15, 2012 via mobile

Went here for lunch after failing to hit the serving period 4 times before... Well it was worth it, the food was amazing, so much so I wanted to try everyone else's! A lovely rustic decor to the place, with good service and good drink selection. Seem to have various events on as well, do I'd love to see this place in full swing!

“Amazing food”
Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

Been here quite a few times even deliberately calling from Dunfermline to Stirling just to get their Macaroni Cheese ( wife's favourite) great atmosphere and the food is excellent. Gary very helpful efficient and friendly, knows some magic card tricks too!! Been coming here for over 12 years always been good and we've never been disappointed not many other places can say that.
