Eferdinger Gastzimmer

Eferding, Oberösterreich, Österreich

First table on the left, first table on the right, centre table, cloakroom table, oven table, regulars' table, bar table, last table and the bar: this is how the guest room was set up until our parents retired at the end of 1998 and closed the Roter Krebs. This marked the end of a tradition dating back several hundred years. The old house, which our grandparents, Franz and Maria Peschka, had bought in 1931, had always been a pub.

Franz, born in 1890 in Krzellowitz, Bohemia, emigrated to Austria in 1911. He and his Maria, born in 1893 in Fischerjuden near Lochen, had seven children, two girls and five boys. It was her grandmother's dream to be a landlady in her own inn. As a coffee cook at the Hotel Excelsior in St. Gilgen on Lake Wolfgang, she fell in love with Franz, the chef with the gaunt face, around 1917. Ernst and Anton, her youngest boys, were born in Eferding, in the long room on the first floor of the Roter Krebs. Grandmother ran the inn alone with the older children in the early years, while grandfather was still head chef at the Peterskeller in Salzburg. He only moved to Eferding shortly before the war.
Anton, our father, learnt to be a chef in Linz, at the Hotel Schwarzer Bär in Herrenstraße. As soon as he had finished his apprenticeship, he travelled to Switzerland for a season. He cooked in fine hotels and restaurants and then, after seven years, he fulfilled his parents' lifelong dream: He was to take over their inn. He did, together with our mother, whom he married in 1962: Ulrike, née Zanzerl, daughter of an ironmonger, trained as a retail saleswoman.

We, the next generation, grew up in the Roter Krebs, grew up with the "G'schäft" and with our grandparents on the first floor. Just children of the innkeepers.

It's important to us to carry on the tradition of our grandparents and parents. It doesn't matter that it's no longer a real pub. The Eferdinger Gastzimmer is what it should be: an open, welcoming space.

And the pub kitchen? It still exists, at least on the internet. Together with our parents, we collect our father's pub recipes on a website: http: //herr-peschka-kocht.com/

The guest room is approx. 60 m² in size and has a kitchenette with dishwasher, coffee machine, kettle, fridge, glasses and crockery.
The studio (the former guesthouse kitchen) is approx. 30 m² in size. In addition to the large table, there is an old cooker that has been converted into a work table and a double sink.

If the guest room is not occupied when the studio is booked, the kitchenette can also be used. Otherwise, a kettle and coffee machine can be provided by arrangement.

The guest room and studio are directly connected by a lockable door and can be booked individually or together. Both have access to the toilets. Our rooms are non-smoking.

On request. The price depends on the duration and type of event, the number of rooms booked and the additional services used (crockery, glasses, table linen, technical equipment, etc.). Electricity/water, the use of ancillary rooms (kitchenette and toilets) and heating costs are included.
