This pub is definitely worth seeking out if you are a fan of pubs with a difference: quirky, homely, real ales, Belgian beers and want to know more about the beers you are drinking. We were lucky to be staying nearby and able to visit on an afternoon when Martin opens this fine establishment. Frequented by those in the knowledge, we were welcomed in and spent a good while chatting to the owner about all-things-beer. It is a real secret among locals as many believe the pub to be still closed, but we are hoping that others discover this out of the way pub. We shall be recommending this as a must see to those who are visiting the area.

We did read the previous reviews and decided to take a cab from Newmarket to try the real ales..the pub does have have a short opening hours in the winter but was worth the effort to taste them. We were welcomed by friendly staff and made to feel like a family member of old... Loads of real ales to taste that we had never seen or tried before including a Perry called Pickle Pig! Everything is for sale including the tables so don't get too comfy! We did buy a few Babycham and Guiness items which were good value. This pub will not be for everyone but for us it was worth the effort. gIve the pub a try ....they deserve the visit... One novel idea is that no food is served.....but they will order you a take away of your choice and you can eat it whilst in the pub...great idea.. Novel night out.

If you are looking for wide screen tv, pool table and juke box then give this one a miss. The Reindeer is a one-off, friendly village pub with a huge selection of bottled beers, in addition to the Landlord's own Pitfield and guest cask ales, and for cider drinkers there's Pickled Pig cider. A vast collection of pub memorabilia, antiques and collectables assembled by new owner Martin Kemp, over many years, adorns the walls and is for sale. So if you are out for a walk or ride and passing through Saxon Street, or just looking for a quiet pub with good beer and a friendly and very knowledgeable landlord, I would recommend dropping in for a pint. However, don't be surprised if, after three hours and a few more pints, like us you are still sat around the cosy wood burner enjoying a good chat with Martin. Time just slips by in this little gem of a pub offering excellent beer and conversation without the typical hubbub so often found these days. To avoid disappointment be aware that during the winter months The Reindeer is only open on Friday and Saturday evenings 5pm - 11pm.

Real ale, 250 different bottled beers, and every wall covered in shelves containing breweriana and collectables all of which are for sale. It really has to been seen to be believed. Only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

A proper old school real ale pub which saved our lives on a baking July day. We walked out from Newmarket expecting that on a very warm Saturday afternoon there would be plenty of village pubs open. We were wrong. Having walked 15 km with everything closed until 17:00, we diverted to Saxon Street on the off chance that the PH sign on our ordnance survey map was up to date. It was and we had a fantastic two hours chatting to the owner who runs the pub at weekends, has a collectables offshoot in the pub and owns a brewery in Essex. If you want to expand your knowledge of brewing and real ales in a mini museum dedicated to the brewing industry, this is your place. No food, but if you you want to bring your own there doesn't seem to be any conflict of interest! Well worth a visit for the excellent Pitfield beers and ales, as well as about 600 varieties of bottled beers, ciders and perries. Note that the owner Martin took the pub over late last year, so reviews prior to that are for different ownership.
