The listing in Tewman's Exeter Pocket Journal is interesting because it tells of a name change from The Bombardier PH. to the Royal Artillery after 1816 but before 1823. R. Loveridge inhabited the PH in 1816.

The inn was seriously damaged by fire according to the EFP 27th February 1861. It was quoted as the Old Artilery Inn.

Pring notes that in 1964, it's two bars (saloon and lounge) were converted into one large bar.
