In the title compound, C15H11ClO2, the dihedral angle between the mean planes of the chloro­benzene and hy­droxy­benzene rings is 6.5 (6)°. The mean plane of the prop-2-en-1-one group makes an angle of 18.0 (1)° with the hy­droxy­phenyl ring and 11.5 (1)° with the chloro­phenyl ring. The crystal packing is stabilized by inter­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, weak C—H⋯O, C—H⋯π and π–π stacking inter­actions [centroid–centroid distances = 3.7771 (7) and 3.6917 (7) Å]
