The act of drinking 3 pints of beer (lager, bitter, stout etc) without going to the toilet until the 3rd pint is finished. (1 UK pint = 568.2ml).
In the pub, sink 3rd full pint, desperate for a piss, stand up to go and announce "I've just done a John Craven".
Keep it under your hat until complete - your drinking companions will be green with envy.

No idea where this definition comes from, but John Craven was a popular children's television news presenter on the BBC in the UK 1972-1989.

A popular UK drinking game. As used in the expression "to do a Jeremy Paxman".

A Paxman is two more than a John Craven, one more than a Trevor McDonald.

Therefore the act of drinking 5 pints without a piss.

(5 UK pints is 2.84 litres)

This is big league stuff - be careful out there.
See the John Craven for instructions.
