When heading for a night out after a hard week at work, many of us will often start at a boozer that is not too spenny.
And where will we often go? Spoons, of course.
The popular pub chain is loved by millions of Brits for its cheap drinks and food - especially when the average price of a pint is raising by the year.
Over the years, pub-goers have speculated as to why booze in Spoons is so cheap compared to some of its competitors.
While enjoying their favourite tipple at the local, drinkers have often suggested that Wetherspoon buys huge batches of ale and lager that are close to their sell by date at a discounted price.
The old saying suggested that the pub chain then sells this rapidly to thirsty punters, allowing them to sell the drinks at a discounted rate.
However, Spoons has had enough of this theory, labelling it as an 'urban myth' and a 'ludicrous fairytale' in the latest issue of its in-house magazine, Wetherspoon News.
In fact, Wetherspoon is threatening to sue any publication that repeats the claim, while explaining in their magazine how they offer booze at a cheaper rate to some of its rivals.
The chain said it is able to offer cheaper pints due to its longer opening hours, while agreeing long-term supply contracts with partners can also help.
As per the Daily Mail, the article - which did not have an author's name attached to it - rubbished claims from a user of the website Quora.
It read: "The ludicrous fairytale that Wetherspoon sells beer which is close to its sell-by date has never appeared in print, but was seen on a website called Quora, posted by a 'Brian Martin'.
"Had the Quora/Google allegation appeared in a newspaper (it never has), there would have been grounds for legal action for defamation."
The article continued: "Wetherspoon has five- to 10-year contracts with its main beer suppliers which, unsurprisingly, do not allow for 'short-dated beer'.
"Indeed, also unsurprisingly, neither Greene King/Budweiser nor their competitors have ever offered Wetherspoon short-dated beer. Sorry to disappoint the conspiracy theorists.
"Wetherspoon also opens for longer hours than most pubs and sell food for prolonged periods – normally until 11pm.
"High sales of a wide range of products and long-term relationships with suppliers are some of the key factors."
