Tongue End is a small village in the South Holland district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 4 miles (6 km) east from Bourne and 6 miles (10 km) south-west from Spalding, and alongside the Counter Drain that runs between Baston and Pode Hole.

Tongue End comprises Victorian red-brick farmworkers' cottages and early 20th-century former council houses.[1] It once had a village school (built in 1876), and three public houses.[1][2]

The name is said to refer to the shape of the land between the rivers Glen and Bourne Eau.[citation needed] There is a location on the Stamford Canal which is similarly formed and has the same name.[3]

Tongue End falls within the drainage area of the Welland and Deepings Internal Drainage Board.[4] Gilbert Heathcote's tunnel drained into the Counter Drain nearby.
