Should I have paid for the coffee?

Pub meal. Pre-ordered.
DS (aged 10) ordered Xmas meal, which is 4 courses. He only wanted the main course and the desert, but I ordered a starter as well.
I order a steak from the regular menu.
I ate his starter, had my steak and salad and no desert.
I also had a coffee.
Do you think I should have paid for the coffee as part of my order or is it OK to have regarded it as the one DS didn't have as part of his set meal?

I think it’s absolutely fine; you both had and paid for your meals, you just had parts of your son’s that would otherwise have gone to waste.
If you’d ordered nothing, and had his starter and coffee, that might be different, but you didn’t, so I wouldn’t worry about it at all.

If DS's meal included a coffee and you drank that coffee then no it shouldn't be charged extra. If it was just a filter coffee though and you ordered a latte or something, then you should pay extra.
If 4 courses were paid for , it shouldn't matter who eats them.
