Mt. Royal Inn Could Lose Liquor License for Serving Customers Inside Amid Restrictions
The New Jersey Attorney General’s office has filed a petition to have the historic Mt. Royal Inn's liquor license revoked for allegedly allowing customers to eat and drink inside amid state coronavirus restrictions.
Mt. Royal Inn, located in on Kings Hwy. in E. Greenwich, Gloucester County, reportedly violated Governor Phil Murphy's order limiting restaurants to carry-out, curbside, and delivery service while New Jersey continues to see its way through the recent pandemic.
A warning from local police came on March 21,when the inn bar allegedly allowed customers to eat and drink in the dining room. An official citation was issued after the restaurant allowed the same thing to happen on April 4, according to NJ.com.
Citing the 'total circumstances and aggravating factors of the pandemic', NJ's Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control has called for Mount Royal Inn's liquor license to be permanently revoked. The inn has 30 days to enter a plea, otherwise, be found guilty by default.
Mount Royal Inn! PLEASE COMPLY! I love you, I love it there. I want you to be able to stay open! Just chill and wait this all out, because your customers will WAIT for YOU. I mean, you've been around for, like, 150 YEARS! Don't go down because your were impatient.
