    I say tea usually (northerner) though I say dinner too. Which means sometimes my meals go: Breakfast, Dinner, Dinner :curious:
    My best friend is a southerner and she was talking about having some tea once and I had to ask her if she meant "drinking tea" or "eating tea".

    I'd say it was as much a class thing as a north-south thing. I'm a southerner and say dinner, but most of my family, all of whom grew up in London, say tea.

    Dinner for my midday meal and Tea for my evening meal.

    I rarely refer to the drink as tea anyway - normally just say "fancy a brew", "nip round for a brew" etc. rather than say tea

    Depends on who I'm speaking to, but usually dinner for the late meal. I never understood calling lunch dinner. :/

    Here the evening meal is mostly tea if it's informal, and dinner if it's a bit more fancy

    I used to say say "tea" but after moving south for several years and causing utter confusion with my housemates, friends etc. I was converted to the term of breakfast, lunch and dinner and it's stuck.

    "Dinner" if it's something cooked but "tea" if it's not

    So, yeah, a mix of the two, which makes sense seeing as I come from the Midlands

    The way I view it, dinner is the main evening meal and tea is a small snack shortly afterwards.
