Rob Hunter left this review about Magic Rock Tap

Visited a couple of weekends ago as part of a crawl in Huddersfield. The brewery tap is behind the brewery itself, where there is plenty of outdoor seating including some covered. Once inside again there is plenty of seating, a window to the brewery area itself and the all important bar offering five cask hand pulls (one of which was off at the time of my visit) and 10 keg taps. Inside was pretty busy but no issues in getting served or finding a seat. There was a food hut outside and someone came round inside to warn customers when service was about to finish so they could get their last minute orders in. Overall I enjoyed my visit here and would happily return.

Housed in a brick built industrial unit this is not the easiest place to find. Given that you have to enter via the rear of the unit and this means crossing a sizeable lake in the rainy season (most days). There's smoking shelter outside and some tables and chairs for those occasional sunny days. The decor inside is minimalist to say the least. One large room with a bar on the rear wall with 3 handpumps and lots of expensive craft keg. There's a fenced off barrel store to the right and windows into the brewery to the left. It was pretty chilly on our recent visit and most people didn't even consider taking their coats off. The pint I had was in good nick as you would expect from a brewery tap. It's OK, but I've been in many better brewery taps.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Magic Rock Tap

Despite being a large lean-to shed at the back of the main brewery building, there are quite a few things to look at inside (including a fenced oak-barrel store and a view of the fermenters through the interior windows). The seating comprises a line of high tables with stools, supplemented by some fold-up benches (both inside and out), but most of the customers were standing in any case. All three handpumps - offering Ringmaster, Inhaler and the Common Grounds triple coffee porter (£2.15, half) - and nine of ten keg taps in use (with the last one dispensing carbon dioxide 'on the house'). Not really a place to linger, but it would have been nice to have had the time to try a couple more beers so I will no doubt return.
