There are lots of products on the market, it depends on how many users do you have, how heavy is your Internet traffic, how many features do you need and what's your budget.
This is one of the most popular http://www.barracudanetworks.com/ns/products/web-filter-overview.php

well the NS5 takes care of our firewall needs and routing etc etc.
just want something pretty basic that can monitor internet use, block certain sites etc etc

we currently have 20 users.

I can recommend to use proxy server. You can use ISA server from MS or free Squid (windows version)
You can install it on SBS, it should not be a problem for 20 users.
