@Simon M

 

just your link shows me the business is on GMaps.

Not sure about your problem.

Are you asking about a missing "Place Label"?

If so read this article  to understand such place labels ar creates based on algos and relevance.

No guarantee to get one.

@Simon M

 

It's a ranking issue (read https://support.google.com/business/answer/7091?hl=en)

or

it seems to be (I guess it is) a "possum" caused  matter

 

See this post from fellow TC Joy Hawkins: Everything you need to know about Google’s ‘Possum’ algorithm update There is a link within that post to one of the discussions at Lindas forum.
