    If I wanted to rank well for a .co.uk domain, is it better to host the site on a UK based server or not?

    If you want to rank well for searches done from UK ip addresses (UK home users for example on BT or Virgin etc etc.) on goog.com or goog.co.uk - then hosting in the UK will help dramatically.
