If he could afford it, he might say - eg You pay the bill when you're in town, and I'll reimburse you later but again it's too formal (better : You pay the bill... and I'll pay you back later) and suggests he's going to pay all the money, not just his share.
Thank you. But why would Peter say 'when John is in town'? um...why would the 'in town' part come in?
