    Default Tap Rooms

    What's the consensus on tap rooms that have very limited opening, eg; a few hours on a Friday & Saturday.

    Should they be added or not?

    I would say yes. Otherwise "we" would have to agree some sort of opening time limit -e.g. Sat/Sun not enough to justify inclusion but Fri/Sat/Sun is enough? Then you might have one open noon to 11.00 on Sat & Sun for 22 hours total, compared with others opening more days but for total of less hours. Too difficult I reckon - even if only open for limited hours (which many taprooms are) still useful to have them listed.

    I agree with Rex. Better to add and check opening times before visiting than miss out on a decent pint.

    I'm inclined to agree. Though I can't see myself making much of an effort to get to these sorts of places, I acknowledge that the information on Pubs Galore will be useful to some people, so we should provide it.

    A big yes from me. They are the sort of places that you wouldn't even know about as they tend to be in odd places like trading estates! They don't get much walk in trade so it has to be good to help them if we can.
    I agree that it is best to check the opening times. At least you are pretty sure to get a decent pint!

    Yes to all.

    I think that if they are omitted, someone could miss out on a real find. Even if opening times are restricted, at least the onus should be on the visitor to check in advance.

    Absoloutely yes. there are currently many "normal" pubs with strange hours as well.

    Thanks everyone, much appreciated. Expect to see a few Bristol ones added soon in that case.

    It's a shame I didn't take some notes when I did the https://eastbristolbrewerytrail.com/ a couple of years ago. I guess I'll just have to revisit them all.

    Strange, in that they don't stick to the hours advertised on their websites.
