One for the history buffs -- "house of private entertainment"

I recently came across this minute book entry:

"Mary Overall, having paid to the clerk of the court $4.12 1/2, the proportion of tax imposed by law, is permitted to keep a house of private entertainment until the first day of the next May term." [Shen Co Minute Book, June 13, 1820]

Can someone please tell me what 'a house of private entertainment' might have been?
