The US President and his wife, Jill, enjoyed a stroll to the outdoor seating area of the Tregenna Castle Hotel in St Ives in Cornwall. Onlookers watched Mr Biden drink a Coca-Cola and the First Lady enjoy a glass of wine.
BBC reporter Jon Sopel, who was at the bar too, took to Twitter to tell his followers about the encounter.
He wrote: “A first in my career @POTUS comes and sits down at table in a bar next to me and orders a drink.
“Am trying to act nonchalant #G7.”
He also shared a video of the couple taking a seat as he was being moved along by security personnel.
In the video, Mr Biden said of Cornwall: “We are enjoying our walk. Well I’ll tell ya, this is so beautiful it doesn’t need the sun.
Mr Sopel wrote of the encounter: “Hope I’m not revealing state secrets but @POTUS drank coke @FLOTUS a glass of red.
“Not a beer or cider or pasty in sight #G7.”
President Biden met the Prime Minister on Thursday to work on an agreement about bolstering their defence ties.
Mr Johnson later hailed the vis-a-vis as a success, branding it a “breath of fresh air”.
Referencing the first Atlantic Charter signed by Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt after the Second World War, Mr Johnson stressed the importance of good US-UK ties.
He told BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg: “I don’t think it is any exaggeration to say that the relationship between the US and UK, the relationship between North America and Europe, which is incarnated in that Atlantic charter of 1941 which we have renewed today, is of massive strategic importance.
“It is important for the prosperity and security of the world, all of the things we believe in together.
“Things like democracy, human rights, the rule of law and that the US and UK stick up for those things together.”
