In the title compound, C21H21BrO2S, the cyclohexyl ring adopts a chair conformation. The 4-bromophenyl ring makes a dihedral angle of 81.62 (6)° with the mean plane of the benzofuran fragment. In the crystal, molecules are linked by weak C-HO and C-H interactions. The crystal structure also exhibits a slipped - interaction between the furan rings of neighbouring molecules [centroid-centroid distances = 3.540 (3) Å, interplanar distance = 3.481 (3) Å and slippage = 0.644 (3) Å].
