Royal Tea Rooms closing on Aug. 31

The Royal Tea Rooms is moving to Selma at the end of next month, says its owner.

The restaurant, owned and operated by Barbara Rice, will leave the Solomon Weil House at 204 W. Chestnut St. on Aug. 31.

The latest edition of the Downtown Goldsboro Development Corporation's newsletter reported that because of conflicts with the owner of the Weil House, Ms. Rice was "unable to continue serving her wonderful menu options at this location."

She has signed a contract to relocate in Selma, where she plans to have a smaller yet similar place.
