In the title compound, C15H13ClN2O, the phenyl group makes a dihedral angle of 7.91 (8)° with the pyrrole ring. The crystal structure forms a three-dimensional network stabilized by - interactions [centroid-centroid distances = 3.807 (1) Å] between the pyridine and phenyl rings and via intermolecular C-HO hydrogen bonds.
