Hi I want to be able to hide the 'Site 'actions' button at the top of my sharepoint page as well as the List Tools in the ribbon. I have a code which removes these altogether but I want to remove these for only a specific permission group not everyone that visits the site.

You can use SPSecurityTrimmedControl to put your logic inside this control to hide the Site Actions and other buttons!

Have a look at:
Hide “Site Actions” -> “View All Site Content” in a 2010 Publishing Site
SecurityTrimmedControl – An Indispensible Tool for your public facing SharePoint web site (and others)

All possible permissions value are Listed on MSDN
