RESEARCH ABOUT ENGLISH FOOD British meals in general The British have three meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner and tea at 5 o'clock p.m..
Breakfast is very big. They have fruit juice, cereals with milk, toast with butter and jam, coffee or tea and at the weekends, eggs with bacon. Lunch is small. They have a sandwich with a beer or a coke in a coffee bar or in a canteen. At 5 o'clock p.m. the British have tea with cakes or biscuits. For dinner, they have vegetable soup, fish, meat or chicken with vegetables or potatoes. They finish with a dessert, apple pie or ice cream. At meals the British drink coke, orange juice and tea; they don't drink water and they have wine only on special occasions.
