Google maps shows nearby pubs and restaurants. But it does not show if they are currently open, which is frustrating at some times of day.

If I google search for the establishment, they often have the opening hours.

I would like to create a mash up of these, but doubt that google would appreciate me scraping its data.

Is there any open database of British eating & drinking establishments with

  • type of establishment
  • location (either address, preferably with post code) or lat/long
  • opening hours

Even if it is incomplete, my main aim is to say "if you walk there now, it will definitely be open".

In theory, OSM should store the data (although unlikely to be as actual as other non-open sources)
