[SOLVED] Static Home Page Displaying Posts

Has anyone experienced or fixed this? it was working before but I don't know how long it's been broken:
I have a pub guide: http://manchesterpubs.net
I want to set a static page as my front page, using a page with a map: http://manchesterpubs.net/map

So I set this page as Front page in wp/settings/reading

Instead of this static page appearing when I click the homepage link I get the list of posts with excerpts as before. The title in the browser title bar has changed to reflect the static page title, and the permalink of the static page has changed to the homepage (ie just the domain root) http://manchesterpubs.net instead of http://manchesterpubs.net/map, and can't be edited.

Also, the link for this page is in the page menu bar, but just takes me to the list too, because of the permalink change, and if I type in http://manchesterpubs.net/map it redirects to the root as well!

Using Atahualpa 3.4.9
If I switch to 2010 theme it all works
