    Tea isn't always a drink, he could have meant it in the context of being an evening meal which is what i call it as well, as opposed to supper or something.

    So do I. Dinner is the mid-day meal, not the evening one, I hate it when people keep calling it dinner.

    No

    Dinner is the main cooked meal of the day, if it's eaten at midday time then the evening meal is tea, if the main meal (dinner) is eaten in the evening the midday meal is called lunch. Simple.

    Supper is later than tea

    Oh, and I am common.

    Luncheon = Lunch
    Tea = afternoon selection of cucumber sandwiches and earl gray tea
    Dinner = evening meal, preceeding cheese selection and coffee with after-dinner mints.
    Supper = anything left over which cook can throw together in a messy, but secretly organised fashion.

    There should be a "neither" option on that poll....because I don't really think I couldcall myself either "posh" or "common".

    it's not about what is served, it's when it's served.

    Up to 2 hours after you have woken up = breakfast
    2 hours to 4 hours after you have woken up if you havent had a meal yet = brunch
    Second meal of the day taken after 12 and before 3:30 = lunch
    Any substantial eating/drinking between 3:30 and 6:30 = tea
    Meal between 6:30 and 8 = Dinner
    Any meal eaten after 8 = Supper
