Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I want to load only certain elements from the .osm file into QGIS, say all elements with tags Tag:amenity=pub.

How can that be done? Using the OSM plugin for QGIS to "Load from File" causes it to load everything and makes QGIS non-responsive.

Have a look at the OSM wiki about osmfilter

And if you are really working with the OSM-import-plugin from QGIS; be aware that it cannot handle OSM objects with 64bit long identifiers, see hint at QGIS_OSM_Plugin
