I do everything with 123-reg[1] who I have found to be very good. They 
are now owned by Pipex so they have some good infrastructure behind 
them. They have simple dns for free (ie A records, MX records, CNAME 
records) or you can point to an external DNS host. They save card 
details (if you want them to) so no retyping. prices are good and you do 
get a nice list of all domains, reg dates & expiry dates (you can even 
download it as a CSV if you like)

I have had no problems with them and have been using them for years. 
Domain's supported are: .name, .co.uk, .org.uk, .me.uk, .com, .net, 
.org, .info, .biz, .tv, .cc, .uk.com, .uk.net, .gb.com, .gb.net, 
.eu.com, .de.com, .jpn.com, .qc.com, .us.com, .web.com

(This is quite obviously an affilliate link. If you do sign up it would 
be nice if you did it through this cos every penny counts, but feel free 
to chop off the path if you would rather go through a clean link, I 
would still recommend them regardless.)
