If it's a business account I can recommend the Alliance and Leicester, which I use myself. I am in the UK but I have dealings with companies in the US and Australia and they make it very easy to transfer funds between international accounts.
Alliance & Leicester Commercial Bank
The only problem may be that you may have to have a UK address.

Can I ask why you need a UK bank account? Is it to receive Sterling payments? If so, many USA banks will offer a sterling account. I am based in the UK, but buy from abroad alot and have both Euro and Dollar accounts with my UK bank

Approach a US branch of any of the major high street banks in the UK. These are LloydsTSB, Royal Bank of Scotland (includes NatWest), Barclays, HSCB and Santander (uses the Alliance and Leicester and Abbey names in the UK).
