If you use the tag /access/ alone, it could refer to the "main" feature 
(the bar or restaurant...).

And water is probably too general... I try suggesting to use 
/tap_water/, that should clearly state that is not bottle water :-)

So it could be:

  * tap_water=yes/no/customers
  * tap_water:free=yes/no/customers
  * tap_water:container=*

This way it seems to me you should be able to cover all the 
possibilities clearly.
