Hub3 website blacklist query

I recently returned to Virgin and have another Hub3. I've been looking in the routers UI for the ability to block specific websites but it appears Virgin's removed this feature from the hub whilst I've been gone.

I presume I need to enable they're websafe system on their website to add site manually now, which is not what I wanted to do.

Anyone know a way around this?

Put that in bridge mode and use a different router..?
Or use specific DNS servers and use those for filtering, see NextDNS.. DNS is easily circumvented though.

Ideally I'd like to pie-hole it, but you can't disable the routers DHCP so have to manually set each networked items DNS.

I wonder if theres any routers out there with pie-hole functionality built in?

I'd always suggest to completely ignore the functionality of the provided HUB. It's bound to be a dumbed down version of a /real router/. Choose your your own router, and additionally add a piHole (ours runs on a Pi4B) as a dedicated DNS server and may DHCP provider.
