Demolished.

Licensing records in 1839 say:

James Adams, keeper of the Orwell Ale-house, in Lower Orwell Street, in the parish of Saint Mary Key, appeared, and having expressed his determination to treat the Magistrates with proper respect, both in their official capacity, and as gentlemen for the future, a license was granted to him to keep the said house for the ensuing year.
