The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C8H7ClO2, consists of two independent mol­ecules, with comparable geometries. Both mol­ecules are approximately planar (r.m.s. deviations = 0.040 and 0.064 Å for the 11 non-H atoms). In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked via inter­molecular O—H⋯O and C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds into chains two mol­ecules thick along (-101).
