    greetings,
    Frank.
    Sorry Frank, but there are some things, no matter how good they are, that just will not fly in some areas. We might like something similar but we could never call it "tea" in Texas.

    Intersting endeed Vicente!! so do you ever have "tea" or you just eat dinner at 6pm?

    It's amazing how different it is in Argentina. We have breakfast, lunch, kind of "tea time" we call "merienda"... we usually have tea, or mate, or coffee with a bite and dinner quite late at night. Of course it depends on each family, but it's usually between 8 and 10.

    Thank you mem286, Frank I agree with your wife, Tea at Harrods is also one of my favourites! If you go back to England, and you happen to go to Henley there is a Tea room by the river called "The Copper Kettle". I highly recommend it.

    I am curious. Do they call lunch "dinner" in Wakefield?

    Default lunch

    Lunch is lunch in Wakefield.

    We used to visit a famous tearoom : BETTY'S in Harrogate
    (and there's a BETTY'S in York too).
    Harrogate, York, Whitby, many beautiful places in Yorkshire...

    It's just that I had a friend from Nottinghamshire. She used to call Sunday lunch "dinner". She'd say in her northern colloquial way "I am going to have me (my) dinner!
    She'd also say things like "Are you allright, love"? when she met anyone on the streets, or "How are you, doo-kie (duckie)?"
    She has passed away now, but I will remember the tea-rooms you suggested because her name was Betty, and she used to bake cakes and pastries for a Tea-room.

    And to complicate matters more, a lot of children have "school dinners" at lunch time and have tea (not a cuppa, but hopefully meat and two veg) before they go to bed!

    I personally prefer "din-dins"
