The public house is situated on the banks of the Monk’s Brook in Swaythling High Road. According to David Lloyd (Building of England: Hampshire and the I.O.W., by Nikolaus Pevsner and David Lloyd) it dates from the early 18th century, although parts of it are said to date back to the 15th century. It has been a public house since about 1850 and was previously a doctor's residence. It was named in honour of the Fleming family, who owned North Stoneham House from the early 17th century and South Stoneham House from 1819. The family, therefore, owned much of the land in the Swaythling area.
