Since my last visit the pub has been converted, and the gap between the pub and the outbuilding with the FB has been infilled by a house. I can't see any sign of the FB, and comparing Google Streetview views from 2008 and 2015 puts the site of the FB in the house I think.

No change. FB just about discernible behind fencing and buddleia. Planning application suggests pub may be convertwed into houses.
