do you want a single device or a mesh system with multiple nodes?
How much do you want to spend?
Decent consumer brands include Asus, Netgear, TP-Link and Zyxel - anything in the £100+ range (for a single router) should be plenty capable of dealing with your current speeds and up to 600mb.. you may need to spend a bit more to deal with a gig connection.
for a mesh system, you may want/need to spend a little more.. the Deco M5 or M9 should be capable of delivering 600+ mbps (though this will drop off depending on which of the access points a given device is connected to).
@andrewmmOnly hassle I have with modem mode, is finding a firewall thats fast enough to follow it .
Why's that an issue? If you've got a hardware firewall that works in router mode, it'll certainly work connected via a third party router. And if you're relying on the hub's router as a software firewall then any credible third party router will have a similar built in option that is at least as effective, and potentially has more features.

In which case, I’d recommend hte UniFi USG - it will do close to gig with none of the whiz bang features switched on (or 2 -250mb with everything switched on).. if you have deeper pockets and want all those whiz bang features, then the UniFi Dream Machine Pro is capable of gig throughput with everything switched on, but it’s gonna cost your upwards of £400.
Alternatively, if you have an old pc knocking about, or want to “roll your own” you could buy yourself a mini-pc with a couple of network ports from eBay/Amazon/etc.. and install pfSense, SophosXG, opnsense, untangle or similar and DIY it..
Lots of other “off the shelf” routers will do too - same brands as outlined above, though most of them will come with wireless capability these days so you’d be paying for functionality that you don’t want/need
