Regional Stammtisch

The Southern Stammtisch

The Southern Stammtisch was founded in 2007 and is run by Ann and Roger Blishen. We have about 30 regular members and now meet at the J.D Wetherspoons public house, "The Jack Phillips", address 48 - 56 High Street, Godalming, Surrey, GU7 1DY on the third Saturday of each month at 12 noon. There is ample parking right outside (The Crown Court car park) and we are about a five minute level walk from Godalming railway station. We also arrange regular outings for our Members, and these are well supported.

The Stammtisch held a very successful "Kaffee and Kuchen" event in November. 5 new members have recently joined the Southern Stammtisch, which puts the number at around 30, plus one Guide Dog called Ozzy.

Please contact the AAS Head office for any queries.

The Chiltern Stammtisch

The Chiltern Stammtisch now meets monthly on the last Saturday for lunch at The Boot and Slipper Pub, 2 Rickmansworth Road, Amersham-on-the-Hill, HP6 5JN

The Chiltern Summer Party was attended by over 40 members and friends, ranging from the age of 106 to a very grown up 9-year-old. Members exchanged news, reminisced and listened to Astrid Gregor who played a medley of familiar tunes on her accordion.

Contact: Brigitte Kreuger via the AAS Head office.


The Chiltern Group Stammtisch was started by the late Peter Lance in February 1998. He devised the concept of Society members meeting on a monthly basis to discuss a variety of topics, knowing that they had a common interest in Austria.

His idea was that these lunchtime meetings would operate on an informal basis, so people could attend when they wanted. This is a format that continues today; although there are some special events like its Summer Party and Krampusfest, which are open to friends and family. The Stammtisch also has separate events outside these meetings – for example groups attending local concerts with an Austrian theme.

His role was taken over by Peter Gieler, who continued being the main contact and organiser until he became the Secretary of the Anglo-Austrian Society. Peter Gieler instigated a local newsletter G’schichtern aus dem Chilternland in May 1998, which has also continued on a quarterly basis.
