I contacted them yesterday about moving my domains and received an immediate response, very impressive. Think I'll move one over and try their hosting services out. They are certainly cheaper than my current registrar and email host.

Another alternative, also a relatively small uk company.  I suspect they may have moved on a bit since it was written, all the same, their  Ďabout usí blurb is quite endearing...

Vidahost is founded by Seb and Dom, aged just 16. Wanting a better quality host for their own hobby websites (an Invision Board forum and Harry Potter fan site) they take matters into their own hands and buy a server, selling spare capacity to friends and family to help cover the costs

They were first mentioned to me by Kitz herself, some thread from long ago. :)

I use them just as registrars, though they do web hosting and mail hosting too.   Performance (as registrars at least) has been faultless.

Yes I've used Vidahost for a long time now.   I don't know how I originally stumbled across them as they were relatively new at that time, but I was looking for a new host after the likes of 123.reg and easily hadn't been working out because of the amount of site traffic. 
Everywhere else was saying I needed dedicated, but Seb and Dom back in about 2006 put together a bespoke business package for me at a reasonable cost.   Since then, and as the site grew further I've upgraded several times through with them and my experience with them has been on the whole very good.   
However my requirements are obviously more than the average user, so Ive no experience with their general shared type hosting.

Talking of small hosts, there is also our own d2d4j who runs a hosting company and is extremely knowledgeable.   
He offers special rates for members of this forum from time to time which may be worth looking at.    linky

Had a BT line in the days when that was the only provider. Added Claranet broadband in 2002 - migrated to Plusnet in 2008.

Changed line rental to Plusnet in 2010 or 11, mainly because I was increasingly frustrated by BT's labyrinthine bills, and their offshore 'help'-desk. There was the added bonus of a £2∑50 discount for having BB & phone. If a fault occurred, there would be no ping-pong battle between the landline and BB providers.

At the moment email is 50-50 ISP & MS/Gmail - gradually migrating all off ISP.
