[Talk-GB] pub defined as a relation

Oh Dear.
I've always been hesitant to call out specific contributors by name, but 
user 'mentor' has been a repeated thorn in my side whenever he's (male?) 
'contributed' in my locale. Those edits can, at best, be described 
'assumptive' (either that, or he's widely travelled within the UK, 
whilst blindfolded).

For this specific example: From aerial images, I would tag the whole 
area, including rear patio area/car parking as amenity=pub, name=* etc & 
combine the full extent of the building as building=pub. Both relations 
appear unnecessary.

Additionally the residential area could be tweaked around the shops/pub 
& landuse=retail be added.

Your 2nd point:
Coincidentally I've just noticed that it only returns the first option 
(swap nodes with ways to see). I'm unclear if it's by design or a recent 
update error. I'd be interested to know the answer.
