My own belief is that the Brits who put this survey together are a little bit biased towards their own country. For example, if a student were asking whether they should go to Princeton or the University College of London, I don't think that it would be a close call, but they say that for most degrees you should pick the later. I might be interesting to compare their ranking for US schools against other rankings for US schools because I would guess that they won't match up very well. For whatever it is worth, in my own small area of expertise, the best UK school regarding economics is the London School of Economics, and they do have some very good people there. But the LSE is ranked well down at 66th.
