In the title compound, C14H13NO2, the mean plane of the non-H atoms of the central amide fragment C-N-C(=O)-C (r.m.s. deviation = 0.029 Å) forms dihedral angles of 5.63 (6) and 10.20 (5)° with the phenyl and hydroxyphenyl rings, respectively. A short intramolecular N-H...O contact is present. In the crystal, the molecules are linked by O-H...O hydrogen bonds to generate C(7) chains along . The chains are reinforced by weak C-H...O contacts, which together with the O-H...O bonds lead to R22(7) loops. Very weak N-H...O interactions link the molecules into inversion dimers.
