The title compound, C15H14FNO2, has an E conformation about the C=N bond, which facilitates the formation of an intra­molecular O—H⋯N hydrogen bond. The F atom is disordered over two adjacent sites in a 0.65 (7):0.35 (7) ratio. The dihedral angle between the benzene ring planes is 14.2 (2)°. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked by O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming C(14) [010] chains.
