    I've never really understood why this is complicated.

    • Dinner is a formal meal, usually with more than one course served at about 8.30pm. It can also be less formal but still served after 8pm
    • Supper is a less formal, usually lighter form of dinner, had by the family possibly in the kitchen rather than the dining room. Again, at 8-8.30pm
    • Tea is a drink. Or a light meal consisting of sandwiches, small cakes/petit fours and the like served in the garden in the summer or inside not in the dining room at 5pm.

    Dinner, which I have at about 6 or 7pm.

    Supper reminds me of people who don't own a TV.

    Dinner, 5:30.

    Supper means a snack after that imo.

    Might call it tea if it were like lunch but in the evening.

    Tea - often also dinner - any time in the evening really
    Dinner is the main meal of the day, whether it be lunch or tea. Supper is a snack after tea, usually just before going to bed, often consisting of hot chocolate alongside a small and not particularly healthy food item
