I want to start brewing some cider to serve at my pub. Will my existing brewing equipment be ok for the job?

Generally yes.  What I want to address, however, is the issue of material construction.  If your existing brewing equipment is stainless steel or wood, then it should be fine (though wood that isn't coated with a polyurethane vanish can be difficult to clean and ensure that bacteria is not forming on the wood).  Aluminum equipment is also okay, but you'll want to make sure that the aluminum equipment does not come into contact with the cider or juice for a long period of time.  Copper and iron equipment is even less desirable for cider than aluminum equipment - if the metals come into contact with the cider or juice, then they may actually be dissolved by the fruit acid, causing all sorts of flavor and color issues.
