High tea:

A meal invented by the Victorians. It differed from 'afternoon tea' in that it was more substantial and included cooked food, such as sardines or eggs on toast. It would generally be taken a little later than afternoon tea, and replace supper or dinner if the later evening was to be taken-up with some other entertainment.
