Oh, has that closed? That's a shame. (I stayed in St Dogmaels a few years
ago, thought the Castle Inn looked wonderfully old-fashioned, and was
planning to go but was diverted by some other excellent pubs nearby. Not
least the one in St Dogmaels itself which served Gwynt y Ddraig Black
Dragon. I'd hoped to return one day... ah well.)

Sure, but OSM isn't just about rendering, let alone just osm-carto
rendering. A "find a pint of beer near me" app which does a proximity search
for amenity=pub won't work very well if some of those pubs... aren't pubs.

amenity=pub means "actually a pub", not "thing that looks like a pub".
