When I put the Unotelly DNS in I can't access Netflix, but it works fine without the DNS entry. 
This has only changed since our fibre install, so at a guess its the new router? 

Would I need to block the Google DNS in the router? 
Is this the case if we are only putting the Unotelly DNS into certain devices.

Same or different ISP? Which? Has your IP address changed? Have you registered the new one with Unotelly?

How are you trying to access Netflix? Browser, Chromecast, Android app, iOS app, Windows app, Amazon Fire TV?

If you are using an app you most likely have to block Google and OpenDNS servers. A list is here.

Same ISP, Vodafone
I have updated the IP address with Unotelly, but still can't access overseas Netflix using the Unotelly DNS servers

So I block those in the router, even though the Unotelly DNS isn't in the router.. ?

Correct - unless you can block on the device (which I doubt you can easily do on smartphones or TVs).
