The term "duke" (from the Latin dux "leader") is the premier hereditary rank of nobility (below the royal family) in Great Britain.
The first non-ruling duke was created by Edward III, who made his oldest son (the Black Prince) Duke of Cornwall in 1337.
The slang word "Pub" is an abbreviation of "public house", which in England traditionally connotated a house, open to the public, where refreshments were available.
Such refreshments included good food, and of course, alcoholic beverages.
