In the title compound, C8H7ClFNO, the F atom is disordred over the meta positions of the benzene ring in a 0.574 (4):0.426 (4) ratio and the Cl atom is syn to the O atom [O - C - C - Cl = 5.6 (3)°]. A short intramolecular C - H⋯O contact occurs. In the crystal, molecules are linked into amide C(4) chains propagating in [101] by N - H⋯O hydrogen bonds.
