Celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of The Beatles’ legendary album Abbey Road, The Ivy in St John’s Wood has created a special dessert and cocktail menu.
Coinciding with the golden anniversary of the album coming up in September, The Ivy’s newest dessert has been inspired by the iconic photo of The Beatles crossing Abbey Road. The restaurant has also designed a special cocktail menu inspired by some of the biggest hits from the album. They’ll both be available from August 19.

Aptly named the Abbey Road Brownie, the dessert features a mix of milk and white chocolate brownies served with cherries and popping candy, and comes topped with icing sugar in the shape of George, Paul, John and Ringo. The brownies are gluten free too, and it’s a well known fact that gluten free brownies are far better than ordinary brownies (less gluten = more gooeyness). You might put on a few extra pounds after a sitting, but you should Carry That Weight with pride!
The cocktail menu will feature the likes of: Golden Slumbers with orange gin, orange juice, hibiscus syrup and prosecco; Oh Darling! with gin, lemon, mint, sugar and soda; and Here Comes The Sun with saffron-infused tequila, Earl Grey sake, blood orange puree, fresh orange juice and Earl Grey syrup.
You’ll find The Ivy St John’s Wood (NW8 7SG) just moments away from Abbey Road Studios, so it’s the perfect spot for Beatles fans. The dessert and cocktails are available from August 19 to September 29.
