From now on - Englisch Stammtisch is at                                       "Nordpol", Mühlenstraße 2

We always meet from about 8pm onward - every Friday - please check our website for any changes.

The English Stammtisch Bielefeld was founded in the 1970s by a lecturer from the Pädagogische Hochschule Bielefeld, the forerunner of the University Bielefeld. Initially the Stammtisch was an informal meeting place for staff and students. The circle soon expanded as everybody interested in speaking English was invited to join in.

As an informal group, there are no membership fees or other regulations. We only meet to enjoy talking English. Conversational English proficiency is the only requirement to take part. Both native and non-native speakers are welcome. However, fun, not perfection, is the aim.

In the forty or so years since the Stammtisch was established, it has been visited by people from all over the world. Students and visiting lecturers from India, China, Japan, Australia, the USA and many other countries have joined us during their time in Germany. Today, not only university students and staff meet at the Stammtisch, but people of all ages and professions.

For at least the last thirty years the Stammtisch used to meet in the quiet fin-de-siècle ambience of Augustus (August-Bebel-Straße 47 on the corner of Heinrichstraße).  As Augustus closed at the end of 2012 we started looking for a new location. And we have found one: Nordpol / Mühlenstraße /Bielefeld.




Please join English Stammtisch.


Be seeing you there.

Friday 13.03.2020 Last Stammtisch before the Corona break

Dear Stammtisch friends,


tonight will be in all probability the last chance to meet before the Corona break - hopefully we can meet again after the Easter break. If you feel like meeting privately I see no reason why you should not arrange your private Stammtisch.


Tonight's venue will not change - it is still Nordpol. Time: From 8pm onward.


Keep on washing your hands

Fish & Chips on Saturday, Feb. 1st 2020 at Lord Nelson's

Hi fish & chips friends,


we meet again at Lord Nelson's one day after the official Brexit. But that should not deter us from having a nice meal among nice people.


So come and join us at Lord Nelson's / Detmolder Strasse.


Be seeing you there


And do not forget - Friday is Stammtisch Day at Nordpol

Hello Friends of Stammtisch,

Anyway, Stammtisch is back at Nordpol. Hopefully we meet again  8ish.

Be seeing you
