If someone said to you 'Are you coming for Dinner' Would you assume this is at ~1pm or ~7pm?

Personally I always call what I eat at noon lunch and have dinner in the evening. I used to call it tea in the evening. However when at school it was always known as 'Dinner time'

I class "Dinner" as the main meal of the day, whether it's eaten at "lunch time", "Tea-time" or 3 in the morning.

I say "Yes, I'll come for dinner, what time are you thinking?" and then all is solved in one clean flocculentless swoop.

Dinner = 12-1pm
Tea = 5-7pm

Big office discussion the other day, but apparently I'm wrong as 'tea' is a hot beverage and it should be

Lunch = 12-1pm
Dinner = 5-7pm

Class wars, let's go. You lot prepare your war pigeons and whippets, we're coming at you on mounts and with packs of dogs. Vermin.

Why do northerners and poor people (I appreciate that is one in the same in the current economic climate :p) eat their evening meal (whatever they may call it) so early?
