Came here after a long drive north from Birmingham, and it was worth it, haggis starters were moist and flavoursome, steak pie main was large and really hit the spot. Definitely recommend to all!

Nice dinner after a day at Stirling Castle. A little hard to find but worth it. Their house-made lager is delicious. We tried sticky toffee pudding for the first time here and are now hooked!

This is a dog friendly pub. We visitedfor lunch and both my partner and I had the steak sandwich. The steak was cooked perfectly and beautifully tender. The staff were friendly and attentive and service was quick. Would certainly recommend.

We've been here several times and love the ambiance. It's sort of quirky. The food has always been good, and I know they've received awards. The service is just too slow. There's no way anyone could go in their "lunch hour". The most recent time...More

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.
